So this weekend, voters will decide who the next mayor and two council persons are. The bad news is, hardly anyone votes. The good news is, if you do vote, your one vote can make a big difference. Take that, national politics. Another nice thing is that you can call, email, meet in person, and possibly have a bike ride or a beer with these candidates. You can show up to meetings and hold them accountable. You can usually fight for (or against) causes and actually see a change in this town.
Caveat: we didn’t get responses from Mark Burroughs, Bob Clifton, or Phil Kregel.
Without further ado, here’s the candidate questionnaire to help you decide who to vote for. For interviews and more insight, visit the excellent ThinkDenton coverage leading up to this election. Kevin Roden conducted video interviews with each candidate in his attic, then he asked tough questions at the Jupiter House forum.
