DC for Democracy will be holding an endorsement vote on February 12 for the April 1 DC primary. As part of that process, we sent questionnaires to candidates and will be posting the responses here.

We will not be making endorsements in uncontested primaries. Any endorsements we make now are for the primary and do not necessarily carry over to the general election, for which we will have another endorsement process later this year.

We held a candidate forum on January 29 for those candidates who are in contested races, and you can watch video of that event.

Thanks to Jesse Lovell for noting the times for the segments of the forum video:

  • Ward 1: 00:01:00-00:15:00
  • Ward 6: 00:15:40-00:37:00
  • At Large: 00:39:50-01:25:00 (brief interruption in video feed)
  • Mayoral: 01:25:00-end

Questionnaire responses will be added below as they come in. Unless otherwise noted, they were submitted on time, before the February 5 deadline.
