continued McGinn: Served for six years as a town councilman, from 2006 until 2011.
What is the most pressing need for the town of Elizabethtown, and how do you feel you can help meet that need?
McGinn: Keep the town the same and add a water treatment plant that will benefit everyone.
Hatch: The most pressing need for our town is a sewer system. A sewer in the core business district will jump start E’town’s economy. Any new development... will need to have a sewer system in place.
There seems to have been a lot of divisiveness in town politics over the past year. If elected, how will you work to bring those with differing opinions together on key town issues?
Hatch: We need to change this climate of negativity and, if elected, I will try to promote positive and constructive dialogue with people of all views and to keep an open mind on all of the issues that come before the Board.
McGinn: I will work in the best interests of the town.
After four years, what do you want voters to remember about your service to the community?
McGinn: That I did the best for the town.
Hatch: I would like people to remember that I was always fiscally conservative and voted accordingly, keeping the interests of the taxpayers and the town in mind at all times. And I would like to be remembered as being open to all opinions and capable of changing my mind whenever I can be convinced it is best for E'town.
