Below are the questions each candidate was asked by KPIN.
#1: The municipal election is a "non-partisan election", and thus, party affiliations are not listed on the ballot. Nevertheless, many voters want to know something about each candidate's political party affiliation and political leanings. Please state which political party (if any) you are registered with, and give your reason for choosing to register with this political party.
#2: Several of the candidates have said they want to work to preserve the character of our community. That can mean different things to different people. What aspects of Pinedale would you like to see kept as-is, and what aspects would you seek to change and how would you seek to change them?
#3: What is one issue that is important to you? Please tell us about it.
