Expertise on and off the field

The first time I held a long conversation with Candace Kimmett was at Waynesboro Country Club. It was about two years ago, when we were both participating in a golf tournament. Mrs. Kimmett and I had talked before when I passed by her in school, at sporting events, and whenever I saw her in the community. It was on the practice green, however, where I got to really know Mrs. Kimmett. We talked for about twenty minutes on school, sports, and life in general.  When I recall the talk now, I realize Mrs. Kimmett really knew what she was talking about in all three areas. And she delivered that knowledge in an effortless yet personable manner, something most people struggle with.

Would you support a tax hike to increase base pay for Waynesboro officers?

The Waynesboro Police Department is one of the lowest paying in the area, with a starting salary of $31,000. A total of 34 officers have resigned over the last five years, leaving for other agencies. That. combined with injuries and retirements, has left 35 officers to patrol the city. Would you support some type of plan, including up to a tax increase, to help bring the base pay up for local officers?
