Development
Should the county develop small area plans as part of the upcoming General Development Plan and Comprehensive rezoning process?
Burns: Yes. I believe a process that brings stakeholders together to make our communities in District 1 stronger and better is a good process. A small area planning process enables residents, businesses and government representatives to come together to address issues important to our communities. The small area planning process represents a community’s vision, enables neighborhoods to be proactive in making Open Space and land use, transportation and other quality of life recommendations, and identifies priorities for neighborhood projects as well as possible resources. It adds certainty and stability to communities and community development.

Teachers
The Teachers Association of Anne Arundel County continues to advocate for a return of step increases given up during the 2008 recession. Should the County Council fund these increases?
Burns: I support adequate resources in the classroom to ensure our children receive a quality education–that includes facilities in which to learn. I look forward to working with all of the stakeholders and interest groups (including the Teachers Association of Anne Arundel County) to make sure there is a balanced, thoughtful and prudent approach to investing in our future and in our children’s education.

Taxes
Do you support maximizing revenue under the county tax cap, or seeking additional revenues to support increased spending on education, public safety or other initiatives?
Burns: I support the county’s voter-enacted tax cap and will work hard…and smart…to make sure your tax dollars are spent intelligently, effectively and fairly and to ensure District 1 residents receive the county services (especially public safety) we need.
