Asked about what issues he’ll be focusing on in the upcoming session, he stated, “Not surprisingly there is always going to be water and fire management related issues. There needs to be a balance between maintaining a strong environmental interest, but also looking at the human elements. So, if there are opportunities to thin responsible and to make certain that we take the advice of the folks who are in the fire protection services. As I mentioned earlier, also focusing on enhancing healthcare, improving education and public safety.”
