With candidates now finalised for the 2008 election we in turn have finalised our list of questions for them as suggested by you the readers.
We’ll endeavour to send them to all candidates but if you’re running and haven’t got one don’t be shy.
Here are this election’s questions:
1) What will be your number 1 spending priority, and what are you willing to de-fund in order to pay for it?
2) Who would you least like to see elected, and why?
3) What particular industries do you see as vital to the continued growth and success of the ACT economy?
4) How will you/your party work to improve motorist’s skills and compliance with all road traffic laws in the ACT?
5) Would you support legislation to outlaw restrictions on companion animals in rental/lease agreements?
6) In 15 words or less, why should anyone vote for you?
7) What do you plan to do to arrest the decay of the older (City Walk/Petrie Plaza/Garema Place) part of Civic?
8) Will you vote to allow club style non profit poker card game tournaments to be played in Canberra?
9) Do you support the current system of policing Canberra as a part of the AFP or would you prefer to see a different model implemented. What steps will you take to ensure tougher and/or more realistic sentences are handed down from the judiciary in the ACT?
10) What is your personal view of taxpayer funded public art?
