Top issues in this campaign: Present primary projects: 1. Main Street streetscape, rehabilitation. 2.

Roger Mosher

Ballot party line in primary election: Republican

Address: 3355 State Route 8, Johnsburg

Occupation: Retired

Education: High school

Age: 70

Current public offices held: None

Past public offices held: Johnsburg School Board, five years

Credentials for office: Five years, school board. I know the duties of a board member, I have studied the issues concerning the town and I can help solve problems we are facing in the coming years. 

Top issues in this campaign:

1. Bad deals with Gore Mountain.

2. Leave transfer station where it is, do not move it to someone's backyard.

3. Taking property off the tax roll. The town owns too much property.

4. Connect train from Tahawus Mine to market tailings for use in concrete, the material when used in concrete absorbs emissions forever.

What I'd do if elected:

1. Make sure the transfer station stays where it currently is.

2. Stop bad deals with Gore Mountain.

3. Work to get a community swimming pool.

4. Get the governor involved to repair tracks from North Creek to Tahawus. 

5. Hauling tailings will create a number of full-time, good-paying jobs.
