Candidate Q&A: The Candidates for City Office in Palm Springs Answer Our 10 Questions

Written by 

It was a simple, four-step exercise:

1. We came up with a list of 10 questions—five serious, issue-based questions, and five questions that are a little more light-hearted—to ask all of the candidates for city office.

2. We set up interviews with all of the candidates.

3. We asked the candidates the 10 questions.

That’s exactly what Palm Springs resident Jimmy Boegle did over the last couple of weeks. He interviewed every one of the 14 Palm Springs candidates—eight mayoral candidates, and six City Council candidates.

Now, comes the last step.

4. Report the answers to those 10 questions.

Here’s what all of the candidates have to say. We only made minor edits on the candidates’ answers for grammar and style; in some cases, we also edited out redundancies. Finally, in some instances, we did not include portions of candidates’ answers if they went completely off-topic.

Welcome to Candidate Q&A.

    A great series of interview reports representing a real service to Palm Springs voters. Kudos to all who helped make them possible.

    I've posted links to this page on my personal Facebook page and also on the http://www.facebook.com/groups/PalmSpringsLocalGovernment as well.

    This is fantastic! As a brand new, full-time resident of Palm Springs, I arrived just in time for search warrants and Measure J screaming fits! Needless to say, I didn't know where to begin to figure out what I see for the future of Palm Springs - and, then, who among these candidates will get us there, honestly and sincerely.

    I'm still reading all of these Q&As, but I already know who I'm NOT going to vote for and by the time I'm done reading all of these, I should have a pretty good idea who gets my vote.

    Thanks Jimmy and CVI staff for a great, great effort!
