Q: If elected, what are the measures you will propose in order to address these issues?
A: Work with the IDEA Board as well as the Economic Division Cabinet in Frankfort to bring in these new jobs by offering incentives in exchange for these jobs.
Q: If elected, would you be more in favor of budget cuts or tax increases in order to balance the budget?
A: I feel that I need to get acquainted with the pros and cons of the budget before I can make this kind of decision. Then the council will need to make a united decision on which way to go that would be best for the city.
Q: If cuts are needed to balance the budget, are there specific departments in which you feel cuts could be made?
A: All departments should be closely examined before any cuts are made but I do feel that all department pertaining to public safety should be the last to suffer cuts.
Q: What do you believe is the public’s role in city government and city council?
A: To make the council and city government aware of the needs of the city so that the council and city government can have the opportunity to take care of these issues.
Q: Do you think there should be an increase or decrease in the public’s role in government?
A: Increase because the more the citizens of Glasgow make the council aware of issues, the better opportunity these issues will have to be taken care of.
Q: Would you be in favor of reducing the number of council members? If so, would you favor a seven or nine-member council?
A: Since I have never served as a member of the city council, I feel that I need some experience in this area before I would be qualified to say if we could do an efficient job with less members.
