Statement: I will work to ensure that every tax dollar is spent responsibly. City government's primary responsibility is to provide essential infrastructure with streets, water and sewer services, and safety through police and fire. The city should work to manage growth, not stifle it. The budget should reflect these priorities. Funding essential services must be budgeting and priority issues, not taxation issues.


I would call for planning and public works regulations to be evaluated and streamlined so that small businesses can grow without being over-regulated.


I would continue to fund law enforcement, especially the drug and gang task force. The city also should support and encourage legal immigration and oppose illegal immigration, which will improve public safety.


I want more transparency in city government, and would enthusiastically support having open labor negotiations.


I am the only candidate for Kennewick City Council who has taken the risk of investing his own money to build a brick and mortar business in Kennewick. It was a big career risk, but I went ahead and built a successful business.  As a result, I am the only candidate who has gone through the commercial building permit process, several times, in the City.  Facebook.com/votebillmckay
