Q & A with Lincoln County Commissioner Dist. 1 candidate Irving Hiatt
Taxes are too high. One of my top priorities would be to seek out a way to reduce them. I am driven to represent District 1 in the 2020 election because I feel it’s time for a change.
Roads are always going to need attention. I would play an active role in ensuring the maintenance happens on a regular basis and kept up to grade.
Counties are sponsors of the initiatives. I would intentionally search out prospective industry to offset what is happening with the railroad and other businesses in our community.
I understand that we are in need of jail expansion because of all the functions our jail serves. I would need to compare all the expenses in comparison to the projected income to give an honest answer.
I would CUT SPENDING to control property taxes.
In order for the budget to be a priority, I would pay close attention to the items that are brought to the table and distinctly determine the urgency and need.
In my opinion the County’s biggest challenge in the next four years will be the workforce.
I think voters should consider me as County Commissioner because I am honest, frugal,dependable, a strong leader, business owner for the last 56 years, and a lifetime resident of North Platte. I could make a difference, and perhaps it’s time for a change.
I support the actions taken by the local government officials to combat the spread of COVID-19. Most importantly, we need to ensure the community understands the seriousness, and abides by the COVID-19 regulations.
To give assistance to the economy now and after social distancing requirements, we need to move forward one day at a time. Once the virus is under control we will then make America great again!
