Questions & Answers

Questions from League of Women Voters of San Diego (1)

What is the most significant challenge facing the City of Poway, and if you are elected, what steps will you take to address it?
Answer from Julie Bendinelli:

The biggest challenge Poway is experiencing is how to move into the future in economic prosperity without losing the special flair of our community. If elected, I will support the need for an improved downtown revitalization. In addition, I have a vision for improved parks and sports facilities that can bring additional revenue to our city.  


While in office, I will bring a fresh voice to the current board that supports family issues with a common sense approach.
