James J. Schenck

Do you support building a downtown MPEV? Why or why not?

"I do not support a Baseball field downtown...with the suggested outlay of somewhere between $32 and $48 million."

Should the municipal court be reformed? Why or why not?

"I am always about improving law enforcement and the rule of law."

What role should the AEDC play in job creation?

"AEDC appears to be in trouble from mismanagement...switch to a Type B to allow other uses for that sales tax revenue."

What should the future be for the Amarillo Civic Center?

"The Amarillo Civic Center should IMMEDIATELY change its name to Amarillo Convention Center. Simple... and would put us on the Convention map with other Cities!
