It's Time to Go On the Record - The General Election - Your Questions

A while back I asked you to submit some Questions for the Candidates in the general election  for Mayor and City Council. First let me thank those you who took the time to comment or send me an e-mail.

I have reviewed the questions submitted and refined them into the five questions below. 

Las week I emailed each candidate the questions. Over the next few days as the answers come back I will post the responses for each Council District and the Mayor's office.

The answers will be Posted as I receive them with NO editing. 

Below are the  five questions from citizens, critical to St. Petersburg's future. 
  1. Specifically with details, what would you do, throughout the entirety of the City of St. Pete, to reduce crime and make the City safe for its citizens?
  2. How will you work to bring neighborhoods back into the decision process? What would be your goals for neighborhood participation?
  3. Should it turn out that the public's desire is to rehab the existing Inverted Pyramid, how will support that effort and how will you proceed?
  4. We have a number of problem schools in St. Petersburg. Specifically what will you do to help improve those schools?
  5. Jobs, education and crime are all problems we agree that affect South St. Pete. What else specifically would you do to improve the quality of life for all south side residents?
If you're a candidate we all challenge you to post your answers to these questions in the Comment Section below, set up a blogging account (it's very easy) and blog your answers or send them to me and I will post them with no editing.
