Ask the Candidate

Serving in public office is assuming enormous responsibility. The well-being of your community and, in these challenging times, the well-being of democracy are on the line. Too often campaigns about what the candidate has done or intends to do. Given the stresses on our system of governance, not to mention the staggeringly-large adaptive challenges we face, we need to know about a candidate as a being, not just as a doing. So here's my ask of any candidate seeking my vote: Help me get to you know, not as a candidate or prospective officeholder, but as a person. What matters to you? What values animate you? What life experience shapes who you are?
