Elect 2012: Dangerfield: Meeting county needs 'only agenda'

SALISBURY — Republican Carl Dangerfield filed Monday to enter the race for county commissioner a second time.
Dangerfield, 48, of 1035 Bentley Court in Rockwell, is a detective with the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office.
“I believe we need common sense, civility and professionalism on our county commission,” he wrote in a prepared statement.
Previously, Dangerfield ran unsuccessfully for Salisbury City Council in 2009 and county commissioner in 2010. He worked for the Salisbury Police Department before joining the Sheriff’s Office.
As a career public servant, Dangerfield said, he believes those who hold public office should serve the people who elect them instead of promoting their personal agendas.
“An opportunity exists for two new members to join the County Commission, and those new faces should have the needs and concerns of all Rowan County as their only agenda,” Dangerfield wrote in his statement.
He said the county government’s priorities should include providing a community that is safe and fun for raising a family.
The county needs to “be aggressive” in its support of emergency services and all county employees, he said, and it should not micro-manage the department heads and directors.
“Create a county that is attractive to business development, (and) be competitive with surrounding counties in recruiting business and keeping our sales tax dollars in Rowan County,” Dangerfield wrote.
Finally, he said, Rowan County needs to make sure educators in the school system have what they need “to properly teach our children.”
