ELECTION 2010 SCORECARD

RETURN TO THE ARCHIVES.

Points are determined upon the candidates' determination to:
  • Develop a sound fiscal strategy for managing the county, including long–range planning.
  • Work with the residents on future planning.
  • Reconcile the future development of the County with concerns for the environment and the
    existing communities.

Points have been given to candidates who do not rely heavily on the development industry for funding
which can, and likely does, influence their decisions.

Due to the ever-present congestion in the county, the races in Districts 1, 4 and 5 have be followed
through printed and electronic media, rather than candidate forums.
