Each candidate had approximately 15 minutes total. They were asked to answer 1-2 moderated questions (which will included opening statement). The first question for each candidate was “Tell us about the office you are running for and how that role can stay accountable to the community - specifically communities that have been historically marginalized?" Afterward, we reserved the remainder of the time for questions from the audience.
*please note that Ms. Crosby is being considered for endorsement but was unable to be present. She has given Equity PAC permission to provide her application to the public given her inability to be present. You can read it here.
