Decision 2012: In their own words

Hunt looks to continue County Council tenure

Greensburg — Candidate: Geneva Hunt

Party Affiliation: Republican

Office Sought: Decatur County Council (incumbent)

Q: What drives you to enter/remain in/return to the arena of elected public service?

A: Because I enjoy the work and I believe I have done a good job of being accountable for the taxpayers’ money. I would like to continue to work for all citizens of Decatur County.

Q: As someone who may be serving Greensburg/Decatur County in office in 2013 and beyond, what is one thing, more than any other, you want to see accomplished?

A: I would like to see the Greensburg airport situation settled; however, I am not a fan of eminent domain.

Q: Describe your experience with business. Have you ever owned or managed one?

A: No, I haven’t, however I give my utmost attention to any business that comes to this area.

Q: Do you believe city/county government should contribute to charitable causes? How should contributions to charitable causes be determined?

A: Not unless they are an approved charitable institution approved by the IRS.

Q: Do you believe repercussions are in order for public officials who deliberately violate the Open Door Law or Access to Public Records Act?

A: Yes. I do think there are some instances of problems with boards that do not have direct oversight by an elected official.

Q: Do you support expansion of the Greensburg Municipal Airport? What is the primary reason for your position?

A: Yes, I personally support it, but I do not want to see anyone’s property acquired by eminent domain.

Q: In the position you seek, how would you work to increase accountability and transparency in Greensburg/Decatur County government?

A: Personally, I can’t see how we could be more transparent. We are willing to show the budgets to anyone and explain the funds.
