Franklinton Commissioner

• What will you get accomplished during your tenure on the board if elected or re-elected? And what would/should be the repercussions if you don't follow through on your plan?

Answer: My plan is to attract more business to the corporate city limits as well as supporting the existing business owners. The tax base needs to expand and business is the best choice to get us there. It will take the majority of the tax burden from residents to the business community and help to make the cost of living in Franklinton better for everyone. We need to be a growing community that offers what families look for in a home. If we do not grow, and we are not proactive looking for business solutions, the town could stagnate and we would find ourselves constantly looking for more revenue.

• What is the most pressing issue facing the town and how do you plan to address it on the board?

Answer: Business growth and streets/sidewalk repairs. The streets and sidewalks need repair and we need sidewalks in some communities where we do not have them presently. Children need safe sidewalks to be able to walk back and forth to school as well as having them for adults to exercise and walk uptown.

As we grow, these projects can be funded more easily and become a partnership between communities and businesses.
