It was candidates from District 3, 4, and 5 Board of Supervisors who had an opportunity to answer questions Monday evening at the Booth Machinery in Yuma. Residents submitted a variety of questions and one of those was the idea of lowering or raising taxes in Yuma County.
Some candidates used their experience as a way to prove to voters they can take on the job. Concerns about unemployment and job creation were emminent in questions asked by locals and all candidates agreed that it is a serious issue.
An inreresting question was what candidates think are the three top issues facing Yuma County. Some candidates said taxes and jobs are definitely important to work on but some brought up unique issues like voter fraud.
Other topics brought up during the candidate forum hosted by the Yuma Sun were animal control, transportation issues, solar power energy, and the Yuma County budget. Each candidate at the end of each session was given a chance to close off with why they would be the best choice for local voters.
