On November 6th, three of the seven seats for the Stafford Board of Supervisors are up for election. With plans to develop Crow’s Nest moving forward and County efforts to save the peninsula apparently stalled, “Save Crow’s Nest” sent the candidates a nine question survey to clarify where they stand on legislation that could impact Crow’s Nest. Emails, “snail mail,” and if needed, follow-up phone calls, were made to each candidate to facilitate a response.

A committee of Save Crow’s Nest reviewers (none of whom are involved in the election campaigns) then”graded” the candidates’ responses on their consistency with Save Crow’s Nest positions, and an overall grade assigned. A positive blue heron indicates an answer consistent with preserving Crow’s Nest.  A negative black bulldozer indicates an answer consistent with action that could facilitate development on the peninsula.

Many thanks to all the candidates who submitted answers. Their responses demonstrated keen awareness of the importance of the Crow’s Nest preservation issue to the upcoming election.
