A: As an elected official I will strive to make sound decisions to insure the stability and growth of our city.
Q: If elected, would you be more in favor of budget cuts or tax increases in order to balance the budget?
A: Nobody wants tax increases or budget cuts that reduces services or puts more burden on our citizens.
Q: If cuts are needed to balance the budget, are there specific departments in which you feel cuts could be made?

Q: What do you believe is the public’s role in city government and city council?
A: The public should always be involved and have a role in government.
Q: Do you think there should be an increase or decrease in the public’s role in government?
A: The public should always be involved and have a role in government. Government should be for the people and by the people. It’s the way our country was meant to be when it was established.
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: Reducing the council is something that could be looked at, but the present council is a very diverse group representing a large cross section of the community. The only problem I see in a small number of council members is a few members could exercise power and control decision making, especially controversial issues.
