We have sent 10 questions to all of the candidates for the upcoming Oak Harbor City Council election. In the following weeks we will be posting the answers that the candidates supplied us for your information. All of the candidates for all of the council seats were sent these questions with the exception of Skip Pohtilla whom we could find no contact information for.

All of the candidates were asked the following questions:

1- Why do you want to be an Oak Harbor City Council member?

2- What do you feel is the most important issue that our city is facing in the near future?

3- What will you do to address it?

4- What do you feel is the second most important issue that our city is facing in the near future?

5- Where do you stand on the growth of Oak Harbor and in what areas would you put the effort into seeing our city grow or be a better community for it’s residents?

6- What are your top three priorities for Oak Harbor if you are elected?

7- Oak Harbor is a wonderful place to live. If you are elected, what will you do to improve the quality of life in Oak Harbor?

8- Who is Your Personal Hero?

9- How do you differ from the other candidate in this race?

10- What, if any, are the one or two major decisions made by the City Council in the past 3 years on which you would have voted differently from the majority and why?

In the next few weeks you will see individual articles with the answers the candidates who have responded have given for these questions.
