The results of the issue survey, which in realty is your platform, was as follows:
- Decrease in taxes
- Healthcare issues
- Transportation plan
There were many other issues that people in Polk County are concerned about, but these were the top 5 issues brought before me by the results of the survey.
Please note: This is the second survey which I have done for Polk County with the same results. This indicates that our county government refuses to acknowledge the concerns of the people and dwells on serving the concerns of special interests.
I would like to thank all the people in Polk County who completed my petition allowing me to be placed on the ballot and thus eliminating a filing fee of $2,600. Your cooperation was greatly appreciated in this endeavor.
I am Carol Castagnero, the Democratic candidate for Polk County Commission, District 5.
I will focus on issues affecting Polk County’s economy, health, safety and the well-being of he residents. We must move in the direction of putting people, mainly children, first; not greed and special interests.
To learn more about me, focus on Lakeland and Polk County public meetings, which I attend often, in being an advocate for the needs of the people, not special interests. Note: the Lakeland city meetings are the first and third Monday and the 1st and 3rd Tuesday for Polk County Commission. You can watch the archives here. Also, there are times I was unable to attend the meetings.
Please send grandmacarol.us to everyone you know and like me on Facebook.
Thank you for your time and concern.
At the present time I am working on petitions to avoid paying a filing fee. If you would like to help me in achieving this goal, I can be contacted at 863-858-1740.
Also, I am conducting a survey of your needs for Polk County. Please take the time when you see me to participate in the survey. This survey creates the peoples’ platform, and I will adhere to their wishes based on the results of the survey.
