The four candidates for Mayor of DeKalb were invited to participate in this survey for our readers to compare where they stand on issues facing the city. All but one candidate completed the survey. John Rey chose not to.
“I am going to have to pass this DeKalb County Online opportunity at this time – just do not have time to devote to the survey in its format of agree-disagree. I find many of the queries require qualification. I do not have the time to prioritize this at this time. Sorry to disappoint you,” wrote Rey in an email.
David Jacobson, Jennifer Groce and Mike Verbic prioritized DeKalb County Online readers and completed the survey. On your behalf we thank them for taking time from their busy schedules to help us make informed votes on April 9th.
The format of the survey was created by our attempt to accommodate many of the questions that were posed by readers. In addressing various topics the candidates had to select a “range of agreement” to statements related to the questions asked. Additional comments or clarifications are provided by each of the candidates. Read the question and each related statement to compare how the candidates fit your “range of agreement.”
The final question of the survey are questions the candidates asked of each other. Those will be posted next week.
