In order to prepare for the March Primaries, Friends for Civil Action will host its first candidate forum next week. Our objective is to learn how we can best be discerning voters, looking for candidates with character, capability, inclusive values, and opportunity to secure office. This becomes all the more important in crowded primaries. As we move forward, we want to express gratitude to the generous people of character who are willing to stand for office and to serve the public. While we don’t provide group endorsements to candidates, we are interested in elevating the quality of dialogue between candidates and their constituents.
