Should the county develop small area plans as part of the upcoming General Development Plan and Comprehensive rezoning process?
Pruski: Yes, the Small Area plans should be incorporated in the upcoming GDP and comp rezoning. Community involvement is essential for the future.
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?
Pruski: Yes, I think the County Executive should fund step increases that were lost. The County Council cannot add to the budget. The County Executive needs to provide funds to help teachers catch up.
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?
Pruski: Yes, I believe we should tax to the current cap. Unfortunately, several members of the current council and County Executive want to provide additional tax cuts. Anne Arundel already has numerous infrastructure needs and we should use the revenue to invest in the future.
