Police officers & equipment

“We must adequately staff our contracted and assigned Sheriff's Deputies. I believe we should increase funding by adding 4 deputies to assist in keeping a safe Harrisburg and low crime rates.

Growth

“I support managed smart growth. Harrisburg is a highly desirable place to call home. We can require that builders have larger lots, continue to pay legally accessed impact fees. We also can better manage our growth by requiring 1/2 acre lots, having a stronger tree ordinance and developing long range plans for growth.”

NEUTRAL
N

Alcohol Sales

“Harrisburg currently allows alcohol sales. I am not in support of the NC Brunch bill that allows alcohol sales before noon on Sundays I have not seen evidence that allowing sales 2 hours earlier one day a week would dramatically affect local business profits as a whole. I would not be supportive of an ABC Store because of our extremely close proximity to Charlotte ABC Stores.”
