[[ Public Transportation - please respond by 03/16/2017

Please describe, including price maximums, your thoughts on public transportation.

I am looking forward to hearing the recommendations of the committee formed to study and evaluate transportation options; however, I would be extremely hesitant to increase the tax burden of Arlington residents in general.]]

Currently, Arlington has 1/4-cent of sales tax that could be, but is not used.

What, if anything, do you see yourself approving, using that portion of the sales tax? why?

Working to keep our taxes low is a main pillar of my campaign and will continue when elected. There is nothing before the council now, or coming up in the near future, that I would approve a sales tax increase for. Further, I will be hesitant to approve an increase for any future issues.  ]]


5. Taxes (Part II) – please respond by April 11, 2019

Currently, Arlington is experiencing almost double-digit property tax evaluation increases. What do you feel is the appropriate tax rate that should be levied upon the citizens:  1) a rate a little below the rollback rate, 2) the effective tax rate, 3) the same tax rate (even if above the rollback rate), or 4) something else? Why?

Did not repond.

 

6. Issue – please respond by April 18, 2019

What is the most important issue the city council is facing? Why?

Did not respond.
