A simple YES or NO. Candidates play '20 Questions'

Mayoral and city council hopefuls were asked by the News for a yes or no answer to questions that affect the everyday lives of Richmondites

Election 2014

One of the biggest challenges for voters in a civic election, especially one with a record number of council candidates, is determining just where candidates stand on various local issues. 

To that end, the Richmond News asked all 34 council and mayoral candidates to answer “yes” or “no” to 20 questions we posed regarding everything from taxes, to development, to wages.

Here are their responses. Green indicates “yes”; red indicates “no.”

We also understand that a yes or no answer cannot always do an issue justice. At the News' all-candidate’s meeting we invited the candidates to take two minutes to expand on one or two of the questions.
