City Council

City Council Questionnaire

WCIA sent the following questions to every candidate, in order to help all members of our community become more informed voters. Published here are the complete text of all the responses we received.

The opinions expressed here are those of the candidates. WCIA is a non-partisan community organization providing these answers for the information of Wyoming voters.

You can select the button below to read all of the responses, or scroll down to see the responses to specific questions.

Question One

A few years ago, a WCIA survey found that fewer than 35% of minorities felt their perspectives were valued in Wyoming. If you were elected to City Council, what would you do to ensure all residents feel their perspectives are valued?

Question Two

Only one third of survey respondents of all backgrounds feel that all residents are treated equally in Wyoming. If elected to City Council what would you do to ensure Wyoming is a community where all residents are respected and treated equally?

Question Three

What will be your top focus on City Council and how have your background, experience and skills prepared you to create change in your focus area?

Question Four

One factor that leads to segregation in housing and schooling (racial and/or economic) is zoning decisions, for example, restrictions on multi-family zoning.  What are your thoughts about our current zoning map (which limits rental properties, commercial spaces and mixed-use configurations), and the feasibility of welcoming a more economically diverse population to our city?

Question Five

Do you think that Wyoming has made strides toward making our community a more welcoming place for diverse peoples?  What concerns are most pressing?

Question Six

Are you open to building relationships with our surrounding communities?  If so, how would you go about doing this? What experience do you have doing this?

Question Seven

If you’re an incumbent:

Do you think the City Strategic Plan is on track? What have you done to help advance it? 

Is there anything you would modify?

As a current member of City Council, what contribution or achievement are you most proud of?

Question Eight

If you’re a new candidate for City Council:

Do you think the City Strategic Plan is on track?  What would you do to help advance it? 

Is there anything you would modify?  

What do you think is missing from the current City Council composition to meet the

needs of the community?
