  1. Biographical Information
  2. What will be your first order of business/first piece of legislation if elected?
  3. The reassessment of city real estate to reflect market valuations is likely to produce a firestorm of public reaction next year. Should Council be doing anything about it in advance?
  4. Can you support for president of Council someone who is enrolled in DROP or someone who is eligible for the program but refuses to say if he/she will enroll?
