The Irwin Districts Historical Society circulated a survey to all candidates in the forthcoming Shire election. The Society is not making any recommendations one way or the other, but makes the candidate’s responses available to help you reach your own decisions. The survey consists of three general policy questions and three specific questions. The results are summarised below, and the form as completed by each candidate is attached for you to read. The form includes any additional comments or remarks by the candidate. The Society sincerely thanks the candidates who chose to participate in the survey. Some candidates chose to make no response to the survey, in which case their entry in the table is marked with a hyphen for ‘no response received’.
