At the Alliance, we believe that our local government works best when voters are fully informed and educated about the views of our candidates and elected representatives. In order to educate voters about candidates’ views on a range of community issues, including conservation, the Alliance requests that candidates answer a “questionnaire.” We have posted all candidates’ full and unedited responses on the following pages:
2018 – Primary Election (August)
Read the full answers from all 2018 Primary candidates for Town Council & County Commission races, covering these topics: preserving & protecting our ecosystem | wildlife collisions and crossings | workforce housing | community growth | Snow King master plan | Natural Resource regulations | transportation | American public lands.
An enlightened citizenry is indispensable for the proper functioning of a republic. Self-government is not possible unless the citizens are educated sufficiently to enable them to exercise oversight.
— Thomas Jefferson
