If you are challenging an incumbent, what qualifies you for the position more than the incumbent?
There is no incumbent in the race. However, when I served before, my favorite achievements were:
- Sponsorship of, and passing of, an ordinance requiring development in the flood plain to be done responsibly.
- Curb the abuse of TIFF and TDD money.
- Overall reduction of City debt.
What do you see as the single most important duty of a city councilman?
To facilitate a safe and inviting township, to attract business and industry for a supportive tax base, and to support a strong and safe infrastructure.
Which of the following municipal issues – business growth, residential growth, infrastructure, tax reductions, historic preservation, parks and recreation opportunities, safety, downtown redevelopment – do you feel it is important to address over the next five years?
