Why are you running for this office?
I love the town of Hebron, and I want to make it even better than it already is. I want to serve all Hebron residents by balancing responsible development with the preservation of our beautiful open space.
What is the most pressing local issue facing your community and how would you solve it (within the capacity of the office for which you are running)?
It is no secret that the state's budgetary crisis will extend to cities and towns already struggling with high tax rates. Responsible development can help lower tax burdens and keep all residents in Hebron who want to stay, while ensuring funding for our great schools.
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?
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?
Are you in favor of regionalizing more services in conjunction with other nearby communities? If so, which ones?
Should your school district get the same amount of education funding from the state if your district's enrollment is dropping?
What's one thing most people don't know about you?
