The Cape Gazette sent a series of questions to each of the candidates for Lewes City Council for publication in the May 2 edition.
As planning and fundraising for the new library continues, what do you think the city's role should be once the new facility is complete?
The City should always be a partner with the Lewes Public Library. Though the library serves a “Greater Lewes” region, our city is physical and cultural host to the library. And the library is a key component of Lewes’ character and civic life.
On City Council, I will find ways to support the library and ensure that it remains a viable part of our community. The library should continue to be a focal point around which we build our relationship with people who live in the Lewes region.
But we can't carry the load alone. I will ensure that it s always a well-balanced partnership.
