The State controls the farmland preservation programs, the purchase of open space and our schools. I will:
. Ensure state agencies are held to tough standards when reviewing development plans to promote smart growth.
. Make certain that the infrastructure of our schools and roadways are capable of accommodating new residents.
. Place more emphasis on preserving our community's open spaces and supporting our agricultural economy.
. Identify methods to reduce congestion, promote commuter services and reduce fuel and energy costs for families.
