A new tool that the League has implemented this year is the candidate questionnaire. While the League does not endorse candidates, our members do, and it was the aim of this effort to give our members tools to better understand legislative candidates in their districts and their stances on issues important to cities. Questionnaire topics include local control, economic development, the state/local fiscal relationship, outsourcing, realignment and medical marijuana. The questionnaire can also be used beyond the election cycle to hold legislators, once elected, accountable.
