“Education is probably the most important to me — making sure the funding goes where it needs to and that those issues are getting brought to the forefront.”
“Helping small business succeed instead of bringing in the big market conglomerates.”
“Try to redirect the community to more personal growth instead of economy enterprise. Instead of having money-based, have a more people-oriented way of doing things.”
“I think they should work on more responsible development, and I think they should finally put the South Lawrence Trafficway to rest and not pursue that unless it’s south of the river.”
