Mission council candidates on the issues: Keeping Mission an attractive place for the middle class

Kids at the Mission Sunflower Festival.

Last month, we asked our readers what issues they wanted to hear the candidates running for local office address ahead of this fall’s local elections primary. Based on the input we received, we developed a three-item questionnaire for candidates running for city council in Ward 1 in Mission.

Today we publish the candidates’ responses to item two:
