Position/philosophy statement People deserve to be treated fairly.
i support the earned-income tax credit, it is good for families. I'm find with businesses getting some breaks but if they decide to leave earlier than expected for any reason, i feel that they need to be held responsible to pay back a penalty.
What laws are you referring to? This is a board statement. We need to address the issues that appear to be causing the problems in our communities, most are not caused by laws but maybe, how laws are enforced. If we are looking at law enforcement we may want to start to take a look at training at how it is carried out in the field by individual officers. I feel that we should also make an effort to ensure that communities have a better understanding of certain laws and what their rights are instead of just going on what someone told them. Education in any aspect is the best that we can offer our communities to keep them informed and safe.
