What is the number one issue facing your Legislative district? What is your top priority for dealing with growth in your Legislative district? What areas of spending in the State budget need to be increased? Decreased? In the 2000 Legislative Session, there were many pieces of gun-control legislation. What are your ideas on the best way to protect our community from the abuse of guns, yet protect our right to have them? Education/planning for growth. Economic development and the extension of 2600 N to the freeway. Education as the #1 priority in the state. Protecting sensitive areas and natural resources. Providing services that are accessible to all. Increased: Education, both higher and primary (K-12). Decreased: Road building in Salt Lake County. Enforce the existing laws and exercise common sense to promote a safe environment for our families in school and other public places. Taxes and Education are top issues. Property Taxes are too high throughout the State. I would support an increase in Sales Tax for Education if, and only if, property taxes were reduced apportionately. You cannot limit growth, but you can make sure infrastructure are adequate for the growth. Law enforcement needs to be increased. “FAT” from all budgets needs to be decreased. Enforcing current gun laws, prosecuting and enforcing stiffer penalties for those who commit crimes with guns. Prosecuting must be done quicker without lengthy delays.
