Published 10/24/2008, The Farmington Independent
We asked all candidates for city positions the same six questions and gave them each 900 words with which to answer. They got to use those words however they thought was best. The questions are: 1.

The issue of a divide between north and south Farmington comes up a lot. Do you believe there is a divide? If so, what can the city do to address it? 4. What do you believe is the role of the city council in attracting commercial development to Farmington? 5. Cities have to balance the need to provide services with a desire to keep taxes low.
