Our Questions for the Candidates

Our Questions for the Candidates

Please find below the questionnaire we sent to at large candidates and county executive candidates. We thank you for the dozens of suggestions many of you made concerning which questions we should ask.

We ask you to complete the attached brief questionnaire so that the people who live, work, play … and vote … in the White Flint area can choose their candidates with knowledge and care.

Please limit your answers to just one paragraph or no more than 175 words. We realize there are many facets and nuances to these questions but in order for people to thoughtfully read the answers from more than thirty candidates, we must ask you to write concisely.

We will publish the candidate responses at our District One Candidates Forum on April 12 as well as on our blog and in our e-newsletter.
