Bagley: Borough powers should remain limited

I was on the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly in the mid to late 1990’s and it was an incredible learning experience that helped prepare me for serving as the KP Borough Mayor for two terms later on. The Kenai Peninsula has been my home since the late 1960’s, although my family has been here since 1952. I enjoy learning about Borough-wide issues and helping people with their problems.

 

I support term limits and will be voting No to repeal the current term limits that are in place and I will be voting No on going from two terms to three terms.

I am also supporting take the $20,000 exemption to $50,000. It is possible that the mill rate might have to go up a small amount, but home owners will really benefit by a $50,000 exemption.

I also will be supporting the Capital Bond measure that is on the ballot. This fixes a number of the roofs for the schools around the Borough and the Homer track and field

I have a common sense, conservative, approach to dealing with finances and issues. I believe in a smaller government. There are things the Kenai Peninsula Borough assembly and administration are doing that I don’t agree with. I am glad our second class Borough has limited powers and wish to see it stay that way. I don’t believe you should measure a politician’s success in office by the number of rules and regulations that they pass.

On October 1st I would appreciate your vote.
