Boston City Council At-Large Candidate Questionnaire

About the Wheelock College Questionnaire on Improving the Lives of Children, Youth and Families

With eight candidates remaining in the race for Boston City Council At-Large, Wheelock College seeks to aid voters in making the most informed decision possible on November 5, 2013. In keeping with its mission to improve the lives of children and families and its 125 year commitment to Boston and its neighborhoods, Wheelock created this opportunity for the candidates to share their perspectives.

The questionnaire is designed to offer an overview of each candidate's vision for Boston's children, youth and families as well as their positions on the important matters that impact residents directly, including the economy, education, safety, health and community life.

Wheelock College created these questions with the help of expert faculty and staff in the areas of children and families. Questionnaires were sent to each candidate on Thursday, Sept. 26 and asked to be returned by Oct. 16. Given the candidates' busy campaign schedules, that deadline was subsequently extended.

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit higher educational institution, Wheelock College does not endorse or support candidates for political office. The publication of candidate responses is not an endorsement of any candidate, political party or view. We did not edit or alter candidates' answers. It was the candidate's responsibility to edit, spell check and proof read answers before submitting this questionnaire to Wheelock College. Any candidate who did not respond to this questionnaire was notified that they will be listed as "Did Not Respond" on the Policy Connection site.
