On this page, we've posed several of the questions that have been churning and bubbling to the top of the community's sea of ideas.

Each candidate has been informed that they can respond to any or all of the questions posed here whenever they find the time. They can also submit revisions to their statements, which will be noted as revisions.

When viewing this page, please keep in mind that we all have different schedules and an election period pulls each candidate in myriad directions while they're still trying to keep up with their work/home/social life balance. If you don't see an answer right away, try to resist judging any candidate based on a lack of response, at least until election day...

Thank you!
