Dianne Coleman: People deserve to be heard and served. They deserve safe, strong roads and I believe Hopkins County needs good fiscal management without raising taxes.

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

DC: Brown Road sidewalk project, safe, strong roads, tax relief. I will support district three projects including paving.

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

DC: We can do better. As the wife of a small business owner and former small business owner, it’s important to keep cost under control and to properly plan for annual expenses.

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

DC: Creating quality jobs, building strong roads for our citizens including the agriculture community. I will always vote to support these issues.

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

DC: Hopkins County native, daughter of a coal miner, graduate of the economic development institute, worked in economic development for 8 years, owned a small business that required payroll taxes and meeting a payroll. I’m a great listener and have the passion and energy to serve people.

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

DC: I reject the idea that increasing spending always solves the problems; however, our priorities should be properly funded.

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

DC: Insurance premium tax should be cut.

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

DC: I will be available to serve my constituents at all reasonable times.

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

DC: I cannot create a hypothesis that would cause me to raise taxes. I will not vote for a tax increase while serving as magistrate.

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

DC: My opponent is a delightful person and I know we will have a positive race. I am a conservative. My husband and I (as small business owners) know firsthand about tough economic times. I will vote to lower the insurance premium tax. I will hold fiscal court accountable.
