2018 Legislative candidate questionnaire responses

AWC asked all candidates who filed to run for state legislative office to answer five questions about issues that are important to cities. The questionnaire helps city officials understand legislative candidate perspectives on city issues. If you don’t see the candidate from your district below, contact them to make sure they plan to complete the questionnaire. If they decline to respond to the questionnaire, ask to meet in person and ask them the five questions personally.

If you choose to support candidates in your private capacity, as is allowed by law, you may want to consider holding your endorsements until you’ve received satisfactory answers from candidates about what they have done or will do to maintain a strong city-state partnership.

A note about city officials’ involvement with elections
As a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, AWC does not endorse. However, city officials may engage in political activity in their private capacity. City officials are encouraged to read and understand the Public Disclosure Commission’s guidelines prior to endorsing a candidate or supporting or opposing a ballot measure.
