2020 Fort Pierce Electoral Candidate Survey

A well informed electorate is an important component of the democratic process.

The 2020 Fort Pierce Mayoral and Commission races this year are substantial, with many candidates offering their vision of how to improve and take the city forward.

In normal times, having a live candidate forum would be the way to hear candidates identify and explain their priorities for the town.  COVID-19 eliminates this option.

The Fort Pierce Community Alliance asked all candidates running for mayor and commissioner to answer the same 5  questions, in order to provide voters a reference to compare and assess their priorities and positions.  The questions were emailed to the candidates and they were given 6 days to respond.  No additional efforts were made to prompt a response.  See their responses by clicking on the button below.
