Are you concerned about the traffic impact that Bellevue’s construction of a new bridge replacing an aging culvert under Coal Creek Parkway, may cause and why?

Yes, I’m very concerned about the impact this will cause. Coal Creek Parkway already gets congested in the morning and evening commute times. This will seriously bring more congestion and I’ll personally look for alternative routes. — Jackie Foskett

Yes. A backup beyond Factoria due to a lane closure for a truck problem at the same location; other bypasses being congested. — Peggy Price I am not all that concerned about delays in traffic on Coal Creek. One of the nice things about Newcastle is there are multiple ways in which to get in and out of town. I plan on using one of the alternate routes. — Peter Zevenbergen

What priorities or goals would you like to see the City Council pursue in 2013?

I’d like to see them continue to focus on/explore ways to bring more tax revenue to our city, i.e.: Who/what businesses we can attract that would bring in needed tax revenue. — Jackie Foskett

Fiscal sustainability, including some tax increases, if necessary. A utility tax involves a little control by the taxpayer — slightly lower use would slightly lower the tax paid. — Peggy Price

In honor of Newcastle’s Mandy Schendel, who placed in the top 10 at the Miss America competition this month, what is the one most important thing our society needs, besides world peace?  

A better sense of our influence on the future — well past the next year; a greater sense of responsibility beyond the measure provided by each pocketbook. — Peggy Price

Our society needs to keep focused on how we can contribute to one another — help less fortunate people — rather than expecting someone else to! — Jackie Foskett
