F������� 16, 2011  ANSWERS FROM PAGE 31 (Jerry Lukksson...con’t) I have worked with and donated time, materials and money towards the snack shack that is under construction. I have participated in Town Hall Meetings which have been received with great en- thusiasm. 4. Controlled growth and stability for our community is my vision. I think that we will see Quartzsite in bloom over the next 5 years. I would like to see the fl avor of our vendors, and rock hounds continue with controlled growth and amenities that bring people here for longer periods of time and provide the greatly needed service to our residents. This in turn will create more jobs and bring people to our community. JOE WINSLOW Council Member 928 N Central Blvd., Quartzsite How long at that address? 6 Years Legal resident of Quartzsite? 11 years Education: 1 Year of Graduate School Degrees: I have a degree in Fine Arts Employer: I am retired Military 1. In the military I supervised a num- ber of people. I was responsible for 2 different budgets in excess of a million dollars. I wrote anti-terrorist defense plans for high value targets. This en- abled me to better understand the in- ner workings of various enterprises. 2. By actively promoting and talking with potential investors in our town, both civilian and military, we will be ���.D�����M��������.��� able to promote the employment op- portunities for this community and create a more stable environment. I feel strongly that we must continue to pursue the BLM land sale options that come available here in the future in or- der to facilitate controlled expansion of our community in accordance with our town plan. 3. I was instrumental in securing a place to set up our current animal shelter. I am on the executive board of WACOG. This position allows me to look after the best interest of our town and state. I was able to fi nd a more affordable source for equipment for those people in our community that are oxygen de- pendent. I have been involved in the activities for the new Concession Stand and Community Center as well as Op- eration Hero Comfort, supporting our local troops. 4. What’s your vision for Quartzsite fi ve years from now? We need to sustain a larger population and create job and investment opportunities for the resi- dents of this community. That in turn will create the continued cycle of con- trolled growth. We are located at the intersection of 95 and I-10. With the NAFTA Agreement, there are opportu- nities on which we need to capitalize. Running against Joe Winslow 620 West Tyson St., Quartzsite Lived at this address for two years Legal resident?

I started going to city council meet- ings and became aware of how the citizens of Quartzsite were treated and didn’t like it...everyone needs a chance to be heard. 4.
