Magistrate Candidate David Offutt

Mag david offutCandidate David OffuttHOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (4/10/14) — David Offutt – Magisterial District 2 Democrat.

Rita Dukes Smith: What are your top priorities if you are re-elected/elected for the position of magistrate?

David Offutt: My top priorities if elected for the position of magistrate for District 2 would be to further research insurance taxes; and, to see how we can improve the roads on school bus routes.

RDS: What are the primary issues facing your district; and, what can you do as a magistrate to deal with them?

DO: Culvert drainage. These culverts in many places are 12 inches in diameter and cannot handle the drainage needed. I would like to request from the Fiscal Court to have these replaced with larger culverts so that water will not continue to flood homes; and, trees on roadways need to be trimmed or cut back to keep our roads safe during storms.

RDS: Do you believe that county dollars and resources are being spent and used wisely?

DO: I would rather research this further before I comment on how the county dollars are being spent.

RDS: What are the primary issues facing the county as a whole; and, what can you do as magistrate to deal with them?

DO: The county as a whole is facing issues with unemployment, if we put our resources and effort together as a community with research as to what business would benefit in our community and fulfill our needs.

RDS: What are your qualities or attributes that would benefit Hopkins County?

DO: I have experience with repairing and building roads, sewers, ditches, drains, and other needs to keep our roads safe. I will listen to what my neighbors needs are and try to find solutions.

RDS: If elected/re-elected, on what does the county need to spend more money?

DO: The county doesn't need to spend more, but spend less.

RDS: If elected/re-elected, where would you like to make spending cuts?

DO: The spending cuts are yet to be determined.

RDS: How many hours per week will you dedicate to being a magistrate? What will you be doing during that time?

DO: I am willing to work as many hours needed to fulfill the people's needs.

RDS: Under what circumstances would you vote to increase tax rates?

DO: None, our taxes can be lowered.

RDS: Why should voters vote for you instead of your opponent(s)?

DO: I will speak for the people in our District 2.
