Republican Leonard Davis is trying to unseat Democrat Gordon Crews in the District 3 seat on the Baker County Commission.
FAMILY: Married, 2 children, 3 grandchildren
EDUCATION: Graduate of Baker County High School
POLITICAL EXPERIENCE: None
WHAT DO YOU SEE AS THE TOP THREE ISSUES IN THIS RACE?
- "We must bring new industry and business to Baker County, adding depth and breadth to our tax base, so that we diversify our revenue stream, and meet the needs of our county. Only industry that will not harm our enviroment or natural resources should be considered.
- "Not raising taxes or imposing assessements on our citizens. Rasing taxes on current citizens will not grow our economy, just as it has not worked on a national level.
- "We must conduct more of the county's business in open public forums. Conduct open meetings, workshops and hearings, in which citizens can hear and see the actions of their elected officials as a board."
HOW CAN YOU HELP VOTERS IN A WAY THAT OTHERS RUNNING FOR THIS OFFICE CANNOT?
- "I have the knowledge, experience and wisdom to make the right decisions for Baker County in these troubled times."
WHAT WOULD YOU HOPE TO BE REMEMBERED FOR ACCOMPLISHING AFTER SERVING IN THIS OFFICE?
- "That I was instrumental in moving Baker County forward into financial stability and establishing policies and procedures that would make the Baker County Commission's actions more in line with the needs and desires of the citizens of Baker County."
