Glasgow City Council Candidates Respond

(Continued)

GLASGOW —

Candidate:

Brad Groce

Incumbent

Q: In your opinion, what are the critical issues facing Glasgow over the next two years?

A: The most important issue facing Glasgow is the same issue facing all of America, the economy and financial stability.

Q: If elected, what are the measures you will propose in order to address these issues?

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?

A: As stated before I strive to make decisions that are for the greater good of Glasgow.

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.
