Voter's guide: City council candidates

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. Why are you the most qualified candidate for this city council position? 2. What do you like about Farmington? What would you change? 3. 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. What would your priorities be when putting together a balanced budget? 6. If you could address just one issue as a member of the Farmington City Council what would the issue be and how would you address it? Candidates are listed in alphabetical order.
