We are happy to announce ABC's 2017 City Council Candidate endorsements.
The candidates we have endorsed are most aligned with our platform on issues including housing affordability and supply, alternative transportation, and transit-oriented density. We encourage you to rank these candidates on November 7th.
ABC's City Council Candidate Questionnaire along with the responses from each candidate who responded are also now available for viewing. We've included a graphic that reflects the results of our entire process.
The all-volunteer ABC election committee compiled these endorsements & ratings based on candidate responses to the questionnaire, performance at our candidate forum, stated positions, past work on issues, and clarifying interviews where necessary. Of the 26 candidates running for city council 20 responded to our questionnaire and 22 attended the forum. We thank all the candidates for their time and participation.
The members of the Elections Committee gave countless hours in the weeks leading up the selection of our endorsees. It was not an easy process, due to the number of qualified candidates and our commitment to keep the group small to effectively use our limited resources.
