Candidate Virtual Forum 2018

Nov_2018_election_guide_cover.jpgTo provide additional perspective on local election contests for conservation-minded voters of the Morongo Basin, MBCA contacted 21 candidates for town/city council and water district board positions (contested positions).

Candidates were offered the opportunity to reply to a single question that was both relevant to the office they seek and that touched on our interest in Morongo Basin’s rural character, economic well-being, and available resources.

Candidates who replied are listed in bold. You can click on their name to read their response. We thank them for sharing their views on the issues that are important to Morongo Basin’s conservation-minded voters.

For the Town and City Council candidates, we asked:

What is your vision of the role of rural character in your community as it relates to progress and economic well-being, and how might you attain that vision as a Council member?
