The Roundup sent questionnaires to every candidate in Bristol and Burlington for this year’s municipal election. In an effort to properly inform voters, their answers are unedited. The goal is to give the candidates the opportunity to offer their thoughts on issues directly to their constitutes. In return, it gives voters the opportunity to formulate their own decisions on what they have to say.
Next up is Dave Goshdigian, Burlington Board of Selectmen. (D)
What are your most pressing issues?
I want to continue developing the town center by attracting businesses. I also want to maintain current town services without increasing the mill rate.
How do your thoughts and ideas differ from your opponent(s)?
I differentiate myself from my opponents by the fact that I am the only one with school-aged children, and I want to bring that perspective to the Board of Selectmen. I also have a law degree, and I want to use that educational background to help make conscious and informed decisions on the Board of Selectmen.
Will you support a tax increase if it’s the last resort?
If there is no other choice, and the failure to raise additional revenue would substantially harm Burlington, then I would have to support a tax increase. I pride myself, however, on considering all viewpoints and opinions. Before making that decision, I will have considered all options and sought out input from town officials.
I will listen to your ideas and work hard to maintain an exceptional Burlington. Thank you for your support on November 7.
