Gives us your questions for Mayor and Council candidates
So, in the middle of being buried in writing and editing a slew of upcoming coverage (as our readers might have noticed, there's *a lot* going on lately), it's time to ask y'all something very important: what questions should the Blade put to Asheville's mayoral and Council candidates?

We've done this a few times so far, and each time I've been amazed by the sharp, in-depth questions y'all come up with. This election, in particular, has a lot at stake (namely who will control our city government). So what would you like to know from the people vying for those offices?

As usual, our primary questionnaire will have ten questions, with five general ones and five "Yes/No" questions (usually on specific proposals Council has or might consider). We're happy to take responses via email or you can comment here.

A few ground rules:

1) Candidates or people in paid positions for candidates, please refrain from weighing in.

2) If you've donated, endorsed or volunteered for a candidate, please disclose that in your comment.

3) Questions for this round will be directed at all the candidates, so no questions specific to a single candidate.

Thank you, as always, for your ideas and insights.
