Help a gadfly sharpen his saw

I'm much better at observing what people do when they're already in office than talking to them about their plans if they make it.  To that end, I would like the help of my readers in interviewing candidates for the 2011 village elections.

Please tell me what issues you're going to be most interested in hearing about in the coming months.  I will take those data and create a poll so I can get a sense of the priorities of this particular slice of the community.  This will allow me to be consistent as I write about the candidates (which I plan on doing whether or not they talk to me directly), and it will also allow me to make sure I focus on the topics which others find relevant.

A reminder:  anonymous comments are permitted, and all comments are moderated.  If you would prefer your comment not be published, make a note of that in the comment itself and I will honor that request for this post.

The transient junkies on Main Street seem to be more of an issue every year. Anything that can be done about that?

I'd like to see someone do something about the fact that there is nothing for youth in this town to do - everyone is all - get the dirty stoop kids outta down town - well... maybe if there was something to do besides eat pizza and walk the rail trail they wouldn't be hanging out. We used to have an arcade... a bowling alley.. a roller skating rink...

I hope anyone considering a run will come to the High School this Monday, September 13 at 7 pm, and let the public know his/her feelings about funding for the fire department. Is the problem with the SYSTEM or with the 5 officials who administer the funds? If the propsal to create a district fails, what would a new Mayor propose to do to improve morale and efficiency among our volunteer firefighters?
