2016 Legislative candidate survey responses

We asked all candidates who filed to run for state legislative positions to answer five questions about issues that are important to cities. These questions are relevant to strengthening the partnership between cities and the state. The survey will help city officials understand legislative candidate perspectives on city issues. If you don’t see the candidate from your district, follow up with them to make sure they plan to complete the survey. If they decline to respond to the questionnaire, ask if they can meet in person to answer the questions. Find the blank survey here.

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.
