[Ms. Donna Biggs Sayegh is one of the certified candidates for Portsmouth City Council. She provided the following platform to help acquaint the Portsmouth electorate with her program as an elected official.]
I promise if I am elected to City Council, I will make an effort to:
- see that all public safety positions are filled in a timely fashion. This includes all public safety offices: sheriff, police, fire, and medics.
- establish a finance commission; and
- provide proper funding for the public safety retirement plans.
Rationale: We the people must support our public safety personnel by providing them with a living wage and help them maintain a standard of living when they retire.
