The Occupy Reno Candidate Survey is Now Live!

We have emailed all the candidates on the ballot in the Reno/Sparks area with a series of questions. Occupy Reno, representing the broader 99%, would like to know their views on a number of issues that concern us.  Our goal is to learn for ourselves and to help educate our fellow citizens about the views of candidates on issues that we believe affect all of us!

It is the general position of Occupiers that every citizen should be aware of critical issues of the day. Citizens, and certainly public officials, should be willing and able to express their opinions in a free and open manner without fear of reprisal. This is a fundamental Constitutional right that every American should exercise in order to protect.

So we hope that you will review their answers to our questions as a means of better understanding the candidates’ viewpoints on some of the big issues affecting our community. We will update the web page as we receive new responses.

We thank all the candidates for responding to our questionnaire, for their service to the community and for their willingness to be a public servant especially in these challenging times!
