Share Your Priorities
I've often wondered, how do our elected representatives make sure they are truly representing the community they serve? Certainly, involvement throughout the community connects us to a broad range of perspectives and canvassing introduces us to folks with whom we might not otherwise cross paths. This survey is just another attempt at a connection point.
About the Survey
To develop the questions, I reviewed the Long Range Plan, past survey results, and past meeting summaries. While I have created surveys in my professional life, this is not meant to be a statistically significant exercise. It is simply to get a pulse of thoughts and perspectives in case I don't have a chance to talk with you personally. Thanks for responding!
