Questions specific to the position

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? I do not feel they are adequate, given the number of hours worked by each division and the current phasing in of a higher minimum, I would agree to move back the number of hours where their overtime pay would start.
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.
3. In your role as the regulatory body for Entergy, what factors would you consider to increase rates?
4. Where is the best site for a new City Hall and why?
