Are you in favor of regionalizing more services in conjunction with other nearby communities? If so, which ones?
Absolutely. We need a homeless shelter open all year round. Not just during the winter months. Also drug programs in our town. Stop sending Wallingford residents to New Haven and Meriden for assistance when this town has lots of money.
Should your school district get the same amount of education funding from the state if your district's enrollment is dropping?
Why are you running for this office?
I am frustrated and tired of the current town council not doing much for the residents.
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)?
Taxes are too high and need them to not go up anymore. Homeless and drug problems need alot more concentration.
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?
I want to cut funding on our police department that has too many police officers and expensive equipment that they don't need.
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?
Add summer concerts on the town green like other towns . Big name vendors like Eddie Money and the Goo Goo Dolls.
What's one thing most people don't know about you?
I'm a stand up guy and stick up for people. Also not into people that get kick backs and favors .
