pryce littlepageHOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (4/10/14) — Pryce Littlepage – Magisterial District 2 Democrat.

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

Pryce Littlepage: No axe to grind with anyone. Maybe some Sport Complex questions.

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

PL: Presently I’m not aware of the issues. I’ll learn more as I campaign.

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

PL: The present magistrates are spending the money to the best of their ability. If elected, I’ll get into or become more aware of this issue.

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

PL: Probably the budget. With coal severance money not what it was, naturally this is a problem.

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

PL: People person. Experience dealing with the operation of several companies.

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

PL: Not being knowledgeable of the budget, I would say road maintenance and lights – certain areas.

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

PL: Scrutinize budget to see where cuts are possible.

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

PL: I’m retired – no set of determined hours. Whatever is needed.

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

PL: I’m against any type of tax increase. Only as a last resort.

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

PL: I am only qualified to answer about myself personally, not my opponents. I am a member of First Christian Church, graduate of Madisonville High School, attended Austin Peay State University, served in the US Army – Korea, and volunteered Human Relations Committee Madisonville High School, Volunteer Fire Department, Evaluation Committee Madisonville High School. I helped acquire land for YAA. Various others: American Legion baseball coach, Surface Mine Inspector – Federal Government, little league baseball and football coach, High School basketball official. I was involved in operation and safety of several strip mines. 150 – 325 coal miners. I have been interested in County Government for many years. The incumbent is not running, so I told myself “Why not me?” Since filing I’ve had lots of encouragement.
