1. What is the top issue in your race and how would you address it? The economy is the top issue at this time. We are trying to keep public services at current levels without increasing taxes. This is in the face of revenue shortfalls. It is quite a challenge. We are also looking at ways to promote growth and job creation.
2. What do you consider your best accomplishment in this office? Why? My best accomplishment has been the expansion of county water and sewer services. This has done more to promote growth and economic stability than anything else. 3. How do you gauge the will of the people? I attempt to listen to everyone who will take time to share their feelings with me, I make myself available and always respond to calls, emails and visits.
