With that said, further research indicates that new regulations are to take affect in 2014, which hopefully will soon provide more definitive causation of the earthquakes.
Please comment on the $1.3 million road & bridge fund deficit brought to light in this year’s budget talks and the court’s decision to give up individual fund balances.
As a fiscal conservative, my foremost thought is how can I be more efficient with our hard-earned taxpayer dollars and how can we mitigate the tax burden placed on the current generation of taxpayers and future generations.
Having worked many years in major construction/infrastructure projects and also as a heavy equipment operator, I know full well the amount of wear and tear placed on our roads and bridges.
Furthermore, I’ve often found that if we do not properly maintain our roads and bridges we are likely to cause an undue burden of reconstruction and rehabilitation costs onto future taxpayers and that failure to be proactive and act is not fiscally responsible.
Do you have any strategies to limit tax increases as the county grows? If so, what are they?
While out on the campaign trail meeting my constituents, I’ve heard all too often about alleged inefficiencies, waste, fraud and abuse of hard-earned taxpayer dollars.
With my track record of managing personnel, managing budgets, intrusive leadership and taking a fledgling major local franchise, operating in the red and now in the black with sustained increased profits for over a decade, I have no doubt I can turn things around, increase productivity and reduce budget expenditures and inefficiencies.
