Statement from Carl Neimeyer regarding Fiedler's election-year budget vote reversal
"Again and again, Ms. Fiedler, like Councilman Peroutka before her, voted against supporting the budgets necessary to support our quality of life in this county. Repeatedly, she has fought to slash budgets and reject beneficial funding and legislation to toe the party line.... I do fear that if District 5 were to grant Ms. Fielder a second term, there is little reason to hope that she will sustain this election-year reversal. Rather, we should expect a return to only “basic services” being underfunded, understaffed, and kicking the can down the road on needed investments. Can we trust that when the threat of the 2022 election is removed, she will put her constituents’ need for funded, functioning government over the demands of donors and partisan Republican interests?"
