VOTE411, a project of the national League of Women Voters, is "committed to ensuring voters have the information they need to successfully participate in every election. Whether it's local, state or federal, every election is important to ensuring our laws and policies reflect the values and beliefs of our communities."
They recently conducted a candidate survey for the voters of Boone County. Over the next couple of days, I'd like to share with you my responses. Here is the second question in the series.
What would be your funding priorities for the next year?
Since COVID-19 will undoubtedly still affect our community, we must first find ways--with or without state or federal resources--to protect the health and safety of those in our community, especially the most vulnerable. Only then can we experience economic prosperity. We must also ensure that core services, including road and bridge maintenance, law enforcement, the courts, and community services-- of Boone County are not disrupted, despite the impact of COVID and the loss of revenue from our inability to capture taxes on remote sales.
All of my responses to this Vote411 survey, along with those of my opponent can also be found here.
