Question 1: 

Many communities around Georgetown offer curbside recycling services to residents, which prevents waste from ending up in costly landfills and can generate money for cities when they operate at scale. The Georgetown City Council has considered expanding recycling to include curbside recycling, but the idea stalled over concerns about up-front costs. What is your strategy to implement curbside recycling to the city of Georgetown?

Did not respond.

Question 2: 

Currently people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer (LGBTQ+) lack protection from discrimination in housing, employment, or public accommodation under state or federal law. Eight cities in Kentucky have passed their own expanded human rights ordinance, often to referred to as a Fairness Ordinance, to extend protections to LGBTQ+ individuals. Regionally this has included cities such as Frankfort, Lexington, and Midway. Do you support a fairness ordinance in Georgetown to protect LGBTQ+ individuals from discrimination?

Did not respond.

Question 3: 

Which elements of the Georgetown-Scott County Comprehensive Plan are you most committed to? Why?

Did not respond.

Question 4: 

What steps will you take to encourage and ensure health, stability, and well-being for low income residents of Georgetown, especially when it comes to affordable housing?

Did not respond.

Question 5: 

Georgetown is one of the fastest growing cities in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and many residents have difficulty finding ways around town for needed services, including work, doctors visits, and more. Do you think it is time for the city to explore public transit opportunities to provide alternative means of transportation in and around the city, especially as we have seen other cities in central Kentucky do so in recent years?

Did not repsond.
