Democrat Cindy Walsh was the third candidate to provide answers to my three questions. Her responses are below (in red):
- If elected, will you actively work to outlaw candidate slates? – Yes
- If elected, will you actively work to outlaw “sample ballots” used by candidate slates as political advertisements? – Yes
- If elected, will you actively work to establish an independent, nonpartisan system for drawing legislative and congressional districts? – Yes
In addition I will fight to make public financing for all candidates mandatory.
So, as of now I have three candidates who have had the guts to answer this citizen blogger’s three simple questions: Walsh, Shawn Quinn, and Heather Mizeur. I’m really hoping other candidates will follow these three and reveal their stances on the questions.
