Kenton on the Issues
I will bring a business perspective to St. Joseph City Council. I want to make St. Joseph beautiful and improve our infrastructure. I’m an enthusiastic advocate for growth in St. Joseph, and an optimistic leader with innovative ideas. I am willing to invest the time and efforts necessary to make St Joseph a better place to live, work and thrive.
We would need to address issues in our community first, which in turn would promote healthy competition that would strengthen our community as a whole.
It did not go as planned due to individual decisions, and it wasn’t scientifically proven to be effective.
Do you support policies that would permit males and females to share the same public restrooms, locker rooms, and showers, based on their self-identified gender instead of their natural born gender?
No as I believe that creates a safety threat for women.
If faced with a budget deficit, would you support or oppose cutting spending rather than increasing taxes?
However, I’m only in favor of cutting spending for those things that will not have a long-term impact on necessary items such as infrastructure.
Items that would have a long-term benefit to our community such as infrastructure, beautification, etc.
Long term beautification, safety, reduce crime, and encourage business growth. I will need to see the rules and regulations, as they are updated.
There’s nothing holding us back from achieving equal opportunity, as it’s based on individual decisions.
It’s not necessary to compare ourselves to Kansas City as we are a much smaller community. We would benefit from focusing on other communities that are comparable in size and succeeding and growing. Focus on creating a niche to capitalize on.
Merrick Garland stated that the greatest threat comes from racially or ethnically motivated violence, “specifically those who advocated for the superiority of the white race”. Do you agree or disagree?
Are there circumstances where the city council can restrict the church from assembling? If so, under which circumstances?
No, that is violating ethical and personal rights.
