2019 Candidate Questionnaire for Memphis Municipal Elections

This weekend, we posed three questions to all 64 candidates running for mayor and city council to gauge their support for local solutions to our city's needs in:

  1. Quality affordable housing - supporting and growing the newly created Memphis Affordable Housing Trust Fund,

  2. Pedestrian safety - improving Memphis' record as the 11th most dangerous metro for pedestrians in the U.S., and

  3. Public transit - increasing our investment to fund the Memphis 3.0 Transit Vision.

CLICK HERE to view the results, which we're posting as they come in, and encourage those running for office in your district to respond. Candidates can email engage@bldgmemphis.org to request a questionnaire link. Then PLEASE VOTE! Early voting begins Friday, September 13 and ends Saturday, September 28. Election Day is October 3. We'll see you at the polls!
