Q: Will you attempt to regulate in terms of the number of nights per year, in the R-1-5 zones?
45
3Judy Casper“I’m kind of neutral on VRDs” “I can’t really give you an answer”
46
1Jim Davis“the only way it’s gonna be fair, is to have a flat set number of nights for everyone”
47
1Diana Hinton1h34m9s“We’ll see what City Council does, before I’m elected”
48
2Riley Hoagland“So no, I don’t believe a 365-day unlimited night rental in the residential R-1-5 zone is a nice, effective method of protecting the integrity of the neighborhoods”
49
2James Scrutton“It needs to be fair to everyone” “the idea of someone getting 30 [days] and the guy next to him getting 365 [days], I don’t agree with doing that”
50
3Doug Wheldon1h37m7s“I just totally reject the notion that leaving a house empty for a period of time in the wintertime, somehow helps the city, it just doesn’t.”

Q: Davis, Scrutton, and Wheldon: Various individuals appearently supporting your campaign have reached out to out-of-town property owners to change their address to specifically to vote in this election, or reach out to the out-of-town owners to contribute to a PAC supporting you Who do you respond to locals concerned about the influence of outside dollars in our local politics? (55 words???)
52
1Jim Davis“Two thirds of the money we’ve brought in is from local residents”
53
2James Scrutton“I’m not aware of us, or anyone I’m involved with sending out anything telling people to change their address so they can vote here … I think that’s mudslinging … politics brings out the worst in some people … I’ve already seen posts about me, they could get sued, because they’re blatant lies”
54
3Doug Wheldon“Our Mayor ran on a platform of pro-business, and pro-VRD, and he won handily, and I don’t think he’s gotten the respect he’s deserved”
55

2Riley Hoagland1h45m“It’s irrelvant at this point”
58
2James Scrutton“It just needs to get put behind us”
59
3Doug Wheldon“It’s my understanding that something on the order of $50,000 was spent on that. It’s water under the bridge”

73
2James Scrutton“I appreciate all the questions that were asked tonight … I disagree somewhat with Mr. Hoagland with the issue with the parking”
74
3Doug Wheldon1h58m1s“Builders are visionaries, doers, and problem solvers, and they’re not bureaucrats. They’re willing to get their hands dirty, and go to work. … My committment to voters is to listen, to be transparent, and I’m willing to talk to anybody, about any subject. I remain optimistic …”
75
3Judy Casper“I don’t think I’m a bureaucrat either, but I do have a strong commitment to this community. I will work tirelessly with those in the community. I think we need to move the process in finding affordable housing …”
