|1. Do you feel like the wages for municipal employees, such as the NOFD and EMS are adequate, and if not, how do you propose raising them?
||No. I believe the $15/hr movement is long-overdue and outdated. I want to advocate for $25/hr by 2025.|
|2. Will you support an ordinance to establish an independent external evaluation of the Ethics Review Board as called for in the Charter? Please explain your answer.
||I would consider supporting such an ordinance, and would specifically require that it be comprised of members nominated from all City workers and appointed by City Council. I do not support the current means of nomination for the Ethics Review Board, and having the balance between mayoral appointees and council appointees lends itself to more credibility.|
|3. In your role as the regulatory body for Entergy, what factors would you consider to increase rates?
||I would not consider raising rates, particularly when Entergy is making record profits during a pandemic while people are being evicted because of housing costs. I believe we should explore municipalizing Entergy.|
|4. Where is the best site for a new City Hall and why?
||Where the people want it- the best ideas happen when everyone's involved. I personally support a renovation of the existing facilities and expanding ancillary offices throughout the city. |
