Owner, Cartridge World franchise for East Tennessee
Seeking first term
Being a local business owner and being involved in many committees gives me a unique perspective on what the needs are in the community, England said. I also have relationships with people in the city and county which would create a better working relationship between the two.
It would also make for a stronger community and enable it to continue moving forward, he noted. Sometimes were voting on issues but dont always see the consequences, he said. We need a better idea of where weve been to know where were going.
1. Which committees would you like to serve on and why?
Not being a current member, Im not sure how many there are. Any committee that I could bring something to the table, I would be happy to serve on.
2. What factors should be considered in a decision on whether commissioners receive benefits?
I think we should look at surrounding counties to see if we are within reason, and what the industry standard is based on the hours required for commissioners.
I want to follow the golden rule, and we have part-time county employees who dont receive insurance.
