2. What is your opinion of community discussions of social issues or reforms (such as the Hudson Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Alliance) and what role should City Council play in those discussions?

3. Should candidates in a non-partisan race, accept support from a political party? If yes, have you accepted financial or in-kind support from a political party for this race?
