The instructions to the candidates were that they should submit responses by COB on Tuesday, September 11. All responses submitted by then would be posted at the same time, so no one could read another's responses in advance. No word limit was imposed, although I suggested:
"approximately a paragraph (2-4 sentences) in the response to each question, although some questions may naturally lead to a longer or shorter response."All responses are published in their entirety without editing, although I have done a little bit of re-formatting (e.g., bullets) for consistency in layout. None of them have been fact-checked, either.
All six candidates submitted responses (click on their name to see their responses):
EDIT (9/12/07): I have added an "After Action Review" discussing how effectively this online, crowdsourced process worked.
NOTE (9/17/07): While I generally accepted (moderated) comments on this blog, I am not accepting comments on the individual candidate questionnaire responses. Accepting such comments would be counter to the spirit of a level playing field and open to abuse.
Readers are still encouraged to post comments on other posts on Brighton Centered.
