The LWV-TLC Voters' Guide was compiled by League volunteers. Candidates were asked to respond to two questions that would be of interest to his/her constituency. All statements are posted as received from the candidate, unedited by the League of Women Voters. Each candidate is solely responsible for the text he/she submits, including the truth of his/her statements.
