2018 LandWatch Election Candidate Questionnaire

In 2018, LandWatch solicited input from candidates for offices in three geographies within Monterey County. While LandWatch does not support or oppose any particular candidate this information is helpful to our members in understanding how their votes at the ballot box have the potential to influence land use policy locally. Twelve races were included in this candidate survey and responses are organize by geography and city below.

  • Gonzales - Mayor | City Council (no responses)

LandWatch Monterey County compiled and distributed this questionnaire to 71 mayoral and city council candidates on the November 2018 ballot. LandWatch is a nonpartisan, nonprofit educational organization that does not endorse, support or oppose individual candidates or political parties. Except for length, replies from candidates are printed as received. LandWatch is not responsible for the content. Candidates are listed in alphabetical order. No part of this questionnaire may be reproduced without permission of LandWatch, or used in any way that may be construed to be an endorsement of an individual's candidacy or views by LandWatch.
