Local elected officials are charged with making decisions that impact the daily lives of Contra Costa families. This year, we created a questionnaire for City Council candidates* to learn more about their views on the issues that matter most to our communities.

*Note: All candidates for City Council in Antioch District 1 and Concord District 5 were invited to respond. We did not receive responses from candidates Tim McGallian in Concord District 5 or Diane Gibson Gray in Antioch District 1. All received responses are shared here for voter education purposes only.
