In an exclusive report, Tallahassee Reports was able to get answers to six specific questions from five candidates vying for two City Commission seats and the office of Mayor.

Below are the responses to the questions asked by Tallahassee Reports. The responses are provided in a way that will allow you to compare the answers provided by each candidate in each race. The instructions were to answer with a yes or no for questions 1-5 with a 20 word explanation if needed. You will see an “*”, if the candidate did not follow the 20 word limit. (We just included the first 20 words they provided in those cases).

The wide ranging questions address public safety, city ethics, campaign finance, the blueprint sales tax, and the challenges facing Tallahassee in the next few years.

Early voting is scheduled to begin August 16th and election day is August 26th.
