2022 Candidate Questionnaires

The Collaborative sent a questionnaire to all candidates for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and state representative and senator in contested races that had filed paperwork with the state Office of Campaign and Political Finance. Below are the responses we have received. This page will continue to be updated as more responses come in. The Collaborative encourages voters to reach out to the candidates directly with any thoughts, questions, or concerns on their responses, and appreciation for them taking the time to fill out this survey. The Collaborative will not be making any endorsements in the election and works with all legislators and stakeholders to build a sustainable, equitable, resilient local food system.

September 7th: The Collaborative thanks all candidates who filled out our questionnaire, and appreciate their time. We look forward to seeing what candidates who did not make it through the primary take on next.
