Livonia City Council Interviews

Sixteen candidates for Livonia City Council ran in the August primary. Of those, eight have advanced to the November 3rd election for four seats. Prior to the primary election, the League of Women Voters interviewed the City Council candidates. Each candidate was allowed an opening and a closing statement and was asked to respond to these 3 questions:

1. What ideas do you have for increasing the population and the tax base of Livonia?
2. Should Livonia participate in the SMART bus system and/or the new Regional Transit Authority for Southeast Michigan? If so, what are the potential benefits, and if not, how can the public transportation needs of all Livonia residents be served?
3. What do you see as the most pressing problem in Livonia and how would you fix it?
