Franklin Election 2017: candidate interview questions

When you have an election ballot in front of you, you have a list of positions, a listing of candidates and a marker to fill in a circle next to one or more names.

How do you decide to make a choice?

To help you make your choice, I have offered to meet with all the candidates. My purpose is hear directly from them about their background and their views on the issues that they will work to resolve on Franklin’s behalf.

This is not an endorsement of any candidate. This is an information sharing exercise.

I’ll ask the same set of question of each candidate so that you can have some common ground to base your decision.

The questions I propose to start with are as follows:
1 - Tell me a bit about yourself, your family and your life here in Franklin? What is your Franklin story?

2 - What do you see as your role’s biggest challenge and do you have any suggestions on how we can resolve it? 
3 - What experience or background will help you to serve in this role? What do you bring to the table that helps to set you apart from the others?

If you have some suggestions, I’d like to hear them. I may find during the course of the interviews that I should tweak the questions. If I do that, I’ll post the updated questions here.

For the candidates, while we start with these three sets of questions, our conversation may bring up other questions to help clarify the point you are trying to make.

The candidate interviews will be posted here and included in the Election Collection for 2017
