City Council Candidate “Virtual Forum”
The Occupy Democracy Working Group of Occupy Petaluma created this survey to ensure that some of the major “Occupy” concerns are addressed within the Petaluma City Council race. All six candidates for the Petaluma City Council responded to this survey. We hope you find the results helpful in choosing the candidates that best represent you and your values.
We invite you to browse the candidates’ responses by topic. For the menu of topics place your cursor on the Occupy Democracy tab above, then on the “City Council Candidate Virtual Forum” drop-down that appears. The menu of nine topics will appear to the right. On some of the pages just below the questions we posed to the candidates you’ll find background information and links that were available to them as they went through the process of responding to this survey.
Please note that the candidates’ responses rotate through the nine topics in alphabetical order, beginning in the first question with the first candidate to reply to this survey. Also, please note that the candidates answers are theirs alone and do not necessarily reflect the views of Occupy Petaluma.
As a movement of the 99% of the population that controls only 60% of the wealth in our country, individuals within Occupy Petaluma support a range of candidates. The group itself does not make endorsements.
If you find this survey helpful please share it with your friends…and consider joining us as we work to reclaim our country for the 99%!
