John Jeffords had factual information while his opponent had contradictory opinions. Who do you want in office? Try to get the article to get all questions and answers.
Have you served in an elected office or community board?
Why are you running?
What do you feel are important issues facing your community?
This particular post will not address all those questions. But consider if the following dialog is important.
John responded that he felt the president’s position is a very challenging job because policies the board creates must recognize rights of the individual without losing sight of the overall welfare of the community as a whole. He wants to limit the growth of government, keep the tax burden down and keep spending in check.
His opponent stated taxes were raised for 2017 when taxes should be going down. Also that roads are in desperate need of repair.
That opinion should tell everyone the challenger does not understand how to manage financial issues for a community. The desire to lower taxes while still maintaining roads is a pie in the sky opinion. Nothing factual was offered to achieve that outcome.
How much did taxes go up in 2017 and how much more was spent in 2017 on roads? Perhaps the challenger needs to state those answers in an upcoming political flyer.
Are you able to reduce your personal income while continuing to provide for your family? One might say yes and if so it means something may have to be delayed.
Keep Taxes Down while Maintaining Roads? Is that possible? If so how?
