Are you in favor of regionalizing more services in conjunction with other nearby communities? If so, which ones?
Why are you running for this office?
To reduce the size and scope of town government, as well as reduce the tax burden on the citizens of Norwich.
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)?
High taxes, and yes it can be solved with the Mayor and Council of the same party.
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?
My plans are to make sure the people of Norwich are getting what they are paying for without any waste, and as far as the state budget crisis, this is due to excessive pension liabilities as well as the spending of the Democrats and Republicans.
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?
No, as we can reduce the burden of property taxes by taking out the wasted spending i government.
Should your school district get the same amount of education funding from the state if your district's enrollment is dropping?
Actually the state should get completely out of funding towns as that only raises taxes.
What's one thing most people don't know about you?
None of your business.
