Constituent Survey

In early April, we ran a survey to ask constituents how they felt about the city's performance and the slate of mayoral candidates.

The questions on the survey and their respective results were as follows:

  • Homelessness: 70%
  • Drugs: 67%
  • Spending and Taxes: 60%
  • Schools: 57%
  • Crime: 55%
  • Affordable Housing: 52%

Conversely, the city earned exceptional (5) or good (4) scores as follows:
