Stephen Cosgrove is running for the District 1 seat on the Collier County Commission election in 2012. Along with many others he will be running against incumbent Donna Fiala in the Republican category. Cosgrove takes the fiscal conservative stance toward public policy and has this to say on the current commission members,
“The current commissioners seem to be out of touch with the voters and the current economic system we’re in. I have a better plan for the future of Collier County,” he said. “My biggest policy is a fiscal conservative policy. The biggest problem (Collier County has) is we’ve been spending money we don’t have on things we don’t need.”
Cosgrove states that county officials should move back to focusing on health, welfare, and public safety of the county residents.
