1) What do you offer as a candidate?
The voters of my district are often given very limited or no choices for their representatives. I represent a fresh alternative to the two-party monopoly.
2) What does your district most need from the City Council?
Freedom from burdensome taxes, relief from over-reaching regulation of private property and the removal of government obstacles to job-creation.
3) What's your opinion of the 2012 budget proposed by the mayor?
A good start. Spending needs to be cut further, to reduce taxes and keep more money in the pockets of taxpayers.
4) What is your position on a comprehensive smoking ban?
I do not and will not support a comprehensive smoking ban. However, if such a ban is passed, I will push for waivers for private clubs.
5) Do you think the city needs more police officers?
We need more police officiers walking (not driving) the streets and neighborhoods of our city.
6) Do you support increased funding for public transit?
The burden of regulation that supports the government monopoly on public transportation in our city completely eliminates the efficiencies that private-sector solutions would provide. I will support the removal of the current wasteful and ineffective monopoly enjoyed by the government and funded by equally unhappy users and taxpayers alike.
7) Do you think the streets and sidewalks in your district are in good shape?
I have seen the slow improvement of our infrastructure over my years in Indianapolis. I will support continued improvements, while being very careful about how property and business owners are effected by them.
8) Name one project that would most benefit your district.
We need to reduce unemployment. We need a community resource where employers and potential employees can meet.
9) What question do you wish we'd asked?
Where to find the best burger in town? George's Neighborhood Grill!
