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. Tomorrow: Vikki Nelson

1. Do you think the county gives the school board enough money? Why or why not?

Cramer said the Board of Education currently receives an adequate amount of money.

2. Do you support a tax to fund fire and rescue services? Why or why not?

Cramer said she would need to know where exactly the money would go under the tax, how the tax would work and how much fire and rescue companies receive now.


3. Should the county help fund a new baseball stadium? Why or why not?

"Not at this time. I feel the one we have right now is not filled to capacity."

4. Should the county provide funds for additional deputies and, if so, where would the money come from?

Yes, but she is not sure where the money would be found in the budget.

5. What do you believe is the biggest issue facing the county and why?

Growth. There is the potential for residential growth to occur too quickly in the county, as has occurred in Frederick and Montgomery counties.
