Candidate Kathy Keefe Jensen – District 1

What endorsements have you received for your current candidacy?

None to date

If offered, would you accept contributions from political action committees affiliated with the real estate industry? (RPAC, Buildpac etc.)

I would be honored to accept contributions from a committee such as RPAC

With crime being the #1 City Council priority, what solutions would you bring to the table and how would you fund them?

Crime is everyone’s problem and I feel with the hire of our new police chief we are moving in the right direction.  The technology that the Chief has already part in place is already changing the way the police do business.  We have to have a place to detain our criminals so they will not be back on the streets the next day.  I look forward to the new jail opening.  With the use of technology, we will be able to have numerous eyes on our city.  There is no greater responsibility as an elected official than keeping our citizens safe.

What is your opinion on the recent issues between the City of Fayetteville and the Public Works Commission?

The city of Fayetteville should not be in the utility business, if we can reduce the waste and redundancy with the same level of serve, I would work with PWC commission to reduce utility rates for owners of PWC which are the citizens of Fayetteville.

What are your thoughts on a new city sign ordinance?  What would you like to see in the ordinance?

The ordinance is only as good as the benefit of the community.  I believe we can agree, the UDO has slowed down development in our community.

What new ideas/concepts can you bring to the office you are seeking?

The biggest struggle our council has had in the past few years has been communication and being willing to make decisions that are best for Fayetteville.  I hope that I can bring leadership to the council that we can work together and put our differences aside to make Fayetteville a better place to live.
