Delray Beach’s registered voters will be able to cast their vote for who they want to see fill two seats on the city commission.
In anticipation of the March 17 election, we have reached out to every candidate who has qualified to run for election or re-election.
This year there are two seats up for election and both are contested. We reached out to every candidate who filed and asked them to complete our questionnaire. Each candidate was asked the same set of questions:
Tell us a little bit about yourself. How long you have lived in Delray, where you live, your profession, your family.
Why are you running for office and what experiences qualify you to be a commissioner?
What are the top three issues you want to address in the city if elected or re-elected?
Delray is known as the “Village by the Sea” but it is also a popular city. How would you balance “keeping the charm” with the need to grow the tax base as the city attracts more people?
City Hall has had a lot of turnover with city staff. Why do you think that is and how would you work to re-establish stability?
How do you approach the relationship you will have as a commissioner with city staff?
We have printed their answers as provided. This month we will feature candidates running for Seat 2. Next month we will feature Seat 4 responses. We will list responses incumbent and the challengers in alphabetical order.
