Why are you running for this office?

Maintaining the integrity of the town. using the towns assets to serve the residents and promote future growth of the town.
The legislature has been debating various ideas to allow towns to raise revenue locally through something other than property taxes. If you could ease your residents' property tax burden by adding another method of taxation, is there anything you might consider for your town?
Perhaps using our public space for more functions above and beyond what we are all ready doing.
What's one thing most people don't know about you?
I am a Pilot and enjoy camping and traveling.
Should your school district get the same amount of education funding from the state if your district's enrollment is dropping?
This is not a yes or no question, it requires much more input.
Are you in favor of regionalizing more services in conjunction with other nearby communities? If so, which ones?
Not sure if that is a viable option, would need more research.
With the state's ongoing budget crisis looming over the election, what are your plans for your community's budget? Is there anything you can do make your town less dependent on revenue from the state?
Put the towns assets to work for us the citizens.
