Both promising to ask voters to reinstate Conservation Collier very quickly and for 10 years
We'll have a short break and then back with Republican Bill McDaniel and Democrat Tamara Paquette
Be sure to shoot us over any questions, comments or dirty words
Greg - How do you think the District 3 forum went?
Really thought both candidates put their best foot forward. Saunders hammered on his experience, Karim made some strong points about business incentives
I don't mean to pick on Bill McDaniel here, but this might be the twenty-fifth time he's begun one of these forums with this "less is more" opening
Paquette would try to bring back sliding scale impact fees, can't have a minimum of 20-plus grand to build a home
McDaniel: Need to look at the kind of housing we want to encourage. We have homes under $200k for sale here, so what's the definition we're actually looking for, the market place?
Yeah GM, Paquette wants to charge impact fees on a sliding scale, so that smallest homes pay the least. McDaniel seemed to say it was less of a problem, that we have plenty of homes under $200k for sale right now, wants to study what exactly kind of housing stock we need
The candidates are now giving their closing statements.
