I’ve lived in Campti since about 2010. I was a field tech and I bought a house in the middle of my territory. I had a good friend that lived on the same block so I thought it was a good spot.
I like to fix things. It doesn’t matter what it is. I like to look at how things work and if it’s not right I like to fix it. Most of the time I work in IT and travel around doing contract jobs involving computer system and network installation, administration, troubleshooting and optimization. I’m hanging around right now because the town is harassing me over my house and property.
I’ve had a poor experience in general dealing with the town government. I have difficulty viewing or obtaining copies of laws. I feel I’ve been harassed over my house. I’ve tried working with the town but it’s not working out.
I’d like to change things that bother me about Campti. I want:
For the town to help its people instead of harassing, fining and squeezing them for money.
To reduce or remove costly permit requirements to install or restore utilities.
To reduce or remove franchise fees for utilities.
To make it easier to get exceptions to current permit requirements.
To make water bills consistent and lower if possible.
To make local laws available for viewing online and be able to view and get a copy at the town hall.
To have incomplete, overly restrictive, incorrect and unconstitutional laws repealed.
Some other things I’d like to do are:
Bring back our municipal court.
Hire local people to police the area instead of the sheriff’s department.
Make Campti a marijuana sanctuary.
Have a bar-b-q with free food for the town’s people at the town meeting on the second Tuesday of each month.
Some things I’d like researched are:
Opening a local grocery store and farmer’s market perhaps selling local goods on consignment.
A solar farm to help mitigate the town’s power usage.
A water park.
Repair, upgrade and maintenance of roads, water and sewer systems.
Water drainage throughout the town.
A local credit union.
Small business help center for local businesses.
I’ve never managed a town. I manage and automate computer systems. When I look at any task I try to automate it. I can find ways to use low cost computer systems to bring new services to the people of Campti. I’m going to have to learn how to manage a town. I hope we can bring the townspeople together to let us decide what we want Campti to be.
