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.
These questions were emailed to all candidates two weeks prior to the deadline. All candidates were asked to and did confirm receipt of the questions. 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 23 — 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.
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.
