McCay was asked about pay raises for city employees and the county commissioner’s office, as well as raising taxes and who on the board is a “true conservative.” McCay seemed hesitant to make any promises or commitments to the issues.  However he did promise to keep working hard to keep costs and employee turnover low.

“I promise you that I’m going to work as hard as I can to find where we can save money, we can operate more efficiently, we can live within our means, I promise that.”

McCay also talked about the current county budget. He said that innovation and consolidation would be key in saving money on the budget. However, he did not give any specific example on the kind of cuts he would make to the budget.
