Why should voters elect you?

"Vote Joe Crawford and you get a seat in government. The Joe Crawford way is practical, thrifty and realistic. Crawford motto: People. Security. Education."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?

"Balanced growth tops Joe Crawford's agenda. It takes wisdom and vision to plan for the future, meet the needs of today, and preserve our communities' uniqueness. Balanced growth has roads in place before new housing, with the impact on traffic and schools realized before building permits. Making all our schools the best enhances both the lives of our children today and their future as adults. School success equals higher property values, equals growth, and leading this positive vision is no ordinary Joe. Balanced growth keeps the focus on livability. Boosting our current businesses while attracting new business allows for low taxes."
