Many Provoans are finding themselves frustrated with their city government on a plethora of issues ranging from attempts to impose a daytime curfew, incessant tax hikes and fee increases, backyard pavement regulations, and building unnecessary roads and bridges on the west side. Yesterday, I sent out the following questionnaire to my District 4 candidates to find out where they stood on these many issues. I expect to have a similar one developed shortly for city-wide candidates. The questions cover a number of different hot-button topics. There is also a movement within our district to get a forum scheduled for the candidates before the primary to increase voter awareness of the candidates. Here is the questionnaire:
Did you support Prop 1 (Rec. Center bond)?
Do you support Opt-In or Opt-Out for curbside recycling?
Do you support the implementation of a RAP tax?
Should city property tax be eliminated, lowered, held, or raised?
Do you support the building of the Northwest Connector?
Do you support the council’s recent changes to campaign filing requirements?
Do you believe that a council member should resign if called to active military duty?
Do you support the current ticket policy whereby a fine doubles in 6 days and triples in 11?
What ideas will you bring to balancing the budget?
What has been your political party affiliation(s) for the past 10 years?
What future projects should the city fund?
Do you support tax increases and bond issuances being subject to a 2/3rds supermajority of voters?
What are your ideas for increasing revenue through growing the sales tax base?
What percentage of a backyard should a landowner be allowed to pave?
Do you support a daytime curfew for minors?
Do you support the redistricting of the city as to eliminate city-wide council positions?
