It is the custom of Lakeland Currents to ask questions of all candidates and publish their responses, unedited.

The four questions:

  1. What is your vision for Lakeland over the next three years?
  2. What is the major issue for Lakeland now and how do you solve it?
  3. Why are you the person needed to guide the City’s future?
  4. Describe your involvement in the Lakeland community.
