Reader Robert Crunkshank put forth this idea that I think is a good one:
I do think it would be a good idea to submit an education-related
questionnaire to all the City Council candidates who make it through the
primary. We should get all those candidates on record on the big
issues, including Tim Burgess and Ed Murray's efforts to have the City
take over the school district and impose unwanted "education reform"
So, dear readers, what questions would you like to see put forth to City Council candidates? I would like to keep it to 4-5 questions because I don't want anyone trying to reject answering these questions on the basis of length of questionnaire.
I think there should be a dead-on "Would you support the takeover of either the district and/or School Board by the Legislature to pass onto the Mayor to run?"
