Here are some of the questions Marg will be asking in this campaign:
* How can we motivate our kids to stay here -- or return -- to raise their families?
* What will encourage our seniors to stay here when they retire?
* How can we attract new businesses and jobs to Jefferson County?
* What kinds of businesses will best serve a healthy and prosperous future for all our citizens?
