What are the top issues facing this district/municipality and how would you work to resolve them?

Of course, budgets always top the list. Keeping our taxes low, and still being able to keep our local services.

And have been creating our Pearl Island Recreational Area, with the help of a DNR grant, and much volunteer help.
