Respectfully declined for anonymous–and he just HAS to know who I am, where I live, where I work, what I do to even think about conducting business. Why do you need all that information? He should have just quit while he was behind but he goes further: My process is flawed because I give “similar questions ( I have 2 sets-one for candidates and one for incumbents), I don’t send the questions FIRST so that they can decide to do the interview (I have told every candidate that they can decline even after I send them the questions) and since he gets many questionnaires from……ready…..LEGITAMATE organizations (I think that Joe B. proved that NVTH is legit and confirmed by the many politicos and celebrities that grace this blog) but sites 2–the Chamber of Commerce and the NEA! The alarm bells in my head are deafening.
Mr. Buona seems like a likable person. I couldn’t tell you with the military/corporate executive arrogance in his statements. I have dealt with that type all my life. He is an east/west kinda guy; that is to say crowd the east and save the west. He wants data centers all over for revenue. We’ve lost AOL, MCI ducked out on back taxes, isn’t Telos moving somewhere? I gather that his insight for progressing and prospering is to first grow the county government to be able to assess our needs and then spend more money trying to coddle business. I could go on but his basic read is at his website.
He says he’s running for his family and mine but I don’t see that so leave my family out of it. Now I’m not here to hurt any parties or ruffle any feathers but, then again, I’m not into popularity contests either. Something ain’t right here and my gut tells me no, no, no! Here is another race with a lack of choice. Just hold your nose when you pull the lever.
