Editor's Note: Twenty-one candidates have filed for five Washington County Commissioners' seats. Ten of the candidates - five Democrats and five Republicans - will be selected as their parties' nominees in the Sept. 10 primary. The general election is Nov. 5. We asked each of the candidates the same five questions. Monday: Harold "Hal" Phillips

1. Do you think the county gives the school board enough money? Why or why not?
Russell said he can't say whether the Board of Education gets enough funding until he examines its budget. He wants to see how the board is spending the money to see if there is some waste in the budget.
2. Do you support a tax to fund fire and rescue services? Why or why not?
Yes, because there are not enough people contributing time or money to the volunteer fire and rescue companies.
3. Should the county help fund a new baseball stadium? Why or why not?
