Steve Hambley (incumbent)
Political affiliation: Republican
Why are you running for Medina County commissioner?
“• I want to continue to see Medina County move ahead and will continue efforts every day to address the concerns of county residents and businesses, particularly in areas, such as infrastructure, parks, solid waste management and transit.”
What would be your top three priorities if you were re-elected? Why?
“• Through collaboration with the cities, public agencies and non-profit organizations expand and coordinate transit services in Medina County and stabilize funding while transitioning from a rural transit system to an urban transit system.
“• Keeping the debt burden low and the budget balanced, without asking for more taxes. This will require using the ‘tools’ provided by the state, improved cooperation between local subdivisions, strategic incorporation of technologies in the delivery of services, as well as careful review and assessment of current departments.
“• Investment in future highway improvements (SR 94, SR 18 & solutions to Medina City Truck Traffic) in the face of strained federal and state highway funding, requires strong regional involvement and lobbying.”
