What is the top issue in your race, and how would you address it?
“Top issue is the leasing of the water and sewer systems in the city of O’Fallon. The problem is possible higher water and sewer bills, lose jobs from the labor force and clerical field. Higher cost to do water and sewer projects. Address it by saying no the lease of the system.”
