Livonia Observer: Voting records, cutting waste discussed at council forum

Eight candidates for City Council highlighted their voting records as well as how they would work with their council colleagues and cut waste from the budget in a candidate forum sponsored Thursday night by the Livonia Chamber of Commerce at City Hall. ...

King said he will listen, learn and lead. He also read a quote taken from a Chinese proverb to reflect his philosophy on the council.

“A man who asks a question is a fool for a minute; the man who asks no questions is a fool forever,” he said. ...

Candidates were also asked about cutting waste in the budget.

King said he didn't look at studying the budget as cutting waste, but more of what he called a “more effective use of resources.” He thought the city should look at car usage. 

King questioned the purchase and installation of a new boiler in the old courthouse. “I thought we built a new courthouse because the old one was so bad,” he said. “And here we are, putting money into the court.” [more]
