8 QUESTIONS TO ASK CANDIDATES RUNNING FOR CLAYTON CITY COUNCIL
Below are a few questions that have been front and center concerns for most people in Clayton for several years now.
Unfortunately, the majority on the current city council and past city councils have not been transparent and don’t give straight answers.
Instead, they’ve done nothing more than feed the people vague, misleading, passive-aggressive doubletalk, and ignore the will of the people, while pushing their own personal agendas.
How candidates and current council members answer (or don’t answer) these questions will determine if they are qualified to represent the people of Clayton.
- What would be your approach, your process, in determining how you would vote on key issues that would have significant long-term impacts on the city’s future (e.g., votes on things like downtown develop and high-density apartment proposals)?
- What would you do specifically to bring back fiscal responsibility to the city’s budget?
- What do you think about Jeff Wan being passed over for mayor by the current City Council?
- What do you think about the Jordan development (Olivia), and how the city handled the entire process over the 4+ years leading up to its approval?
- Do you think it’s a good idea to develop the city’s last remaining downtown green space, especially when ever-growing RHNA numbers, when fulfilled, will increase the city’s population by several thousand over the next 10 years?
- What do you think should be done with the downtown lot?
- Do you think it’s right that the Clayton Business and Community Association (CBCA) dominates city government?
Do you think it’s a conflict of interest that so many CBCA members are on the City Council and Planning Commission?
HOW MUCH MORE SHOULD CLAYTON GROW?
Of these nearby Contra Costa County cites, Clayton is by far the smallest geographically at 3.8 square miles.
Yet, when looked at in terms of population density, Clayton is comparable to much larger cities like San Ramon, Antioch and Walnut Creek.
