2022 City Council Election Question and Answers
We would like to thank all the city council candidates who took the time to answer the questions posed to them from the IRNA and CWC. Click the appropriate button below to see the questions and answers from each city council candidate. Several candidates sent their own PDFs in with their answers and the others were formatted with the questions present in the PDF for easy reference. The answers were not changed at all from what were submitted.
Candidates are listed in alphabetical order. If a candidate is not listed above, they did not return our questionnaire by the deadline of October 3, 2022.
These questions were emailed to all candidates on September 16. All candidates were asked to and did confirm receipt of the questions. The original deadline was September 29, however an extension was given due to Hurricane Ian. This is the text of the email that was sent to all the candidates:
The Clean Water Coalition of Indian River County along with the Indian River Neighborhood Association has compiled a list of questions that we would like you to answer relating to some of our issues of concern. Our combined memberships are in the thousands in Indian River County and the municipalities.
Please see the attached document and confirm that you have received a copy by replying to this email. If we do not hear back from you saying you received it, we will follow up with a phone call to make sure that this email address is correct and that you have plenty of time to address our questions. All answers submitted will be published on our websites, social media accounts, and shared potentially wider. The words will not be changed from what you send us, even if there is a typo. We ask that your responses be returned to us by Thursday, September 29 — the day mail-in ballots are sent out. This will give us time to share your answers before anyone has a ballot in their hands.
CWC and IRNA will NOT be endorsing any candidates in this election. We are both 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations and so we ask you these questions and publish your answers as materials to educate the voters to your positions on these important issues. All candidates are being sent these questions and will be treated in the same manner.
Thank you for your time, again please confirm you received this email and the attached document and we look forward to reading and sharing your answers.
