City Council Candidate Questionnaire

In August, the HB Huddle Local Elections Team and Steering Team developed a questionnaire for Huntington Beach City Council candidates. The questionnaire was sent to all 15 candidates running for HB City Council. We received responses from seven candidates. The following are their unedited answers to our questions. Their answers are presented here in alphabetical order.

As advocates for informed voting, we hope these responses will educate community members about city issues and where the candidates stand on those issues. The election is coming up on Nov. 6, 2018 and voters will be able to vote for up to four City Council candidates.

1) How would you create affordable housing in our city? Does high density housing fit into those plans? If so where can this type of housing be built?
