Voters’ Guide

The League of Women Voters (LWV) asked candidates to provide answers to four questions: 1. What in your education and experience make you the best qualified candidate for this position?  2. What are your goals should you be elected and how will you work to accomplish them with current resources?  3. What would you like to see happen with growth and density in Ann Arbor in the next ten years? 4. How do you plan to communicate with the residents in your ward?  Here is a link to the Guide.

The Debates

Given the constraints imposed by Covid19 distancing requirements, all three debates were conducted over Zoom.
