20 questions from The Coast

Meet the human behind the politician: We sent the candidates a questionnaire, asking questions that are more personal than political. Here are their unedited answers:


Coast analysis

District 5 is the most exciting council race. Although former Dartmouth mayor McCluskey is the only sitting councillor running in the newly created district—an anticipated showdown with councillor Jim Smith fizzled when Smith decided not to re-offer—Zebedee, who has ties to the highly organized labour community that worked to get Jackie Barkhouse and Jennifer Watts elected in the last election, is a contender. Austin, Jones-Vaillancourt, Coast theatre critic Watson and Dudka are lesser known politically, but each has his or her strengths and all appear to have strong organizational bases. Bowman is something of a wild card; he's not speaking publicly and we only know about his candidacy from his Facebook page. But don't count anyone out, the race is wide open.
