    Thanks for the reminder! And, it’s so easy to submit questions – I’ve done that via email and your reminder to include my address was spot on! The auto-reply mentions that as well! Here’s to a great debate! Perhaps some of the candidates have a look at the Cary Citizen — I’ll post my questions below (I should have combined 1 and 2):

    1) The NC General Assembly budget will have an impact on the Town’s budget – what is the size of that impact in dollars?

    2) Given that the NC General Assembly budget will impact the Town Of Cary’s budget, what would you do, if elected, to address the projected shortfall?

    3) What do you know about Open Data? How will you, if elected, improve the Town’s Open Data policy?

    4) What is the value to the taxpayer for all of the entertainment properties the Town owns? Should the town own entertainment venue and stadiums? Should the Town promote them?
