1. Sales Tax – please respond by March 12, 2020

This May's ballot includes a measure to increase the sales tax another ¼ cent to 8.25%. Would you have voted to put this on the ballot? Why or why not? How do you plan to vote on this issue? Why?

Did not respond.

 

2. Density – please respond by March 19, 2020

How do you feel about changing commercially zoned properties to multi-family zoned properties? What if the area already contains many, many apartments such as southeast Arlington in the Hwy 360 corridor? How do you feel about RMU (Regional Mixed Use) zoning and its potential 100 units/acre?

 

 

 

3. Transportation – please respond by March 26, 2020

Via's December 2019 contract renewal has increased the geographical coverage area to 41% (and is available to 49% of the population). Meanwhile, the contract is paid 53% by Arlington taxpayers, 31% by Federal Grant, and 16% by the people taking the rides. Is this fair to the taxpayers, most of whom are not covered, but are paying 53%? How do you plan to vote on future funding? What is your solution?

4. Communications (Part II) – please respond by March 29, 2018

A year and a half ago there was a $500,000,000 Rangers bond issue where there were NO town hall meetings held to explain and answer questions on the issue. This coming November there will likely be a several hundred million city bond issue again on the ballot. If elected do you plan to hold any town hall meetings on this coming election?

Did not respond.

 


5. Taxes (Part I) – please respond by April 5, 2018

Currently, Arlington has 1/4-cent of sales tax that could be, but is not used. What, if anything, do you see yourself approving to place in front of the voters, for that 1/4-cent of sales tax? Why?

Did not respond.

 


6. Taxes (Part II) – please respond by April 12, 2018


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, a rate a little below the rollback rate, the effective tax rate, the same tax rate (even if above the rollback rate), or something else? Why?

 Did not respond.
