Question 1: 

Currently people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer (LGBTQ+) lack protection from discrimination in housing, employment, or public accommodation under state or federal law. Eight cities in Kentucky have passed their own expanded human rights ordinance, often referred to as a Fairness Ordinance, to extend protections to LGBTQ+ individuals. These cities include towns as small as Vicco (population 334), as large as Louisville (population 760,026), and as nearby as Covington (population 40,640). Do you support a Fairness Ordinance for Elsmere to protect LGBTQ+ individuals from discrimination?

Yes

Question 2: 

Citizens returning home from incarceration, and even those who have finished their probation and parole, often have trouble returning to their communities. Several cities and states have fostered initiatives aimed at helping these members of our community get back on the feet. Louisville and Cincinnati, for example, have removed questions about previous convictions from hiring applications. What steps do you feel Elsmere can and should take to help folks re-enter our community?

As long as there is a thorough background check done and the individuals agree to be monitored, I would not be against removing questions from applications,

Question 3: 

Elsmere is one of the most diverse cities in northern Kentucky when it comes to racial and ethnic make up, and has many vibrant neighborhoods. Yet some residents see a distinct lack of representation on city boards or in city employment. What steps can the city take to make sure that community boards and city employment are representative of the city as a whole?

No opinion.

Question 4: 

Over the past several years there have been several high profile incidents that have put a strain on the relationships between police departments and communities of color, and high profile reports regarding police departments of various sizes purposefully targeting people of color across the nation. What steps can the city take to help build and protect trust between all residents in our city and law enforcement officers?

The city can update their policy and procedures manual to insure that peoples rights are addressed.

Question 5: 

Currently the Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky (TANK) does not have a regularly scheduled route that stops within the city of Elsmere, and our schools do not offer transportation for students to get to and from school. What can the city do to help residents meet transportation needs?

We have tried to initiate a bus route in our city.  It was not accepted by our residents.  I don't think tghere is a way for this to happen.

Question 6: 

What steps do you feel the city of Elsmere can and should take to help promote sustainability in our community? What can the city do to become more energy efficient, or to reduce our carbon footprint?

The City should keep up with new regulations and inform the citizens.
