1. What is your vision for Bellevue? Beautiful, peaceful, affordable.
2. What do you see as Bellevue’s strengths & weaknesses/struggles? Its strength is its location; its weakness is its politicians.
3. What would you propose to resolve the weaknesses/struggles? Election Day. A quorum of reasonable councilmen and women is required; intelligence, experience, and communication skills strongly preferred. Greater visibility of the boro and school board checkbooks will inhibit foolish spending. Right now visibility is zero.
4. How do you see the council and school board working together in the future? We work together now, the Boro supplies a School Resource Officer (a policeman) and splits the cost of the crossing guards.
Note to fellow candidates, school board and council: without tax discipline, Bellevue will end up a wasteland of high taxes and subsidized housing. Take the long view, improve your process and lower your budgets so people will know that this is a great place to invest.
