  • District 3 Magistrate Primary Candidates

    Which of the county resources (fire department, sheriff’s department, etc.) do you feel deserves the most attention, financially?

    Morris: Fire departments. There are several satellite departments scattered throughout the county. These departments carry a fire rating protection class of 9. Ratings run 1 through 10, with 10 being the highest insurance price. I would like to focus on these departments by assisting financially, or grants to better equip them and improve the ratings, which in turn would decrease the residential insurance costs.
