Here's an early filter:

How does each candidate feel about the following - with a specific on how s/he plans to vote?

building police, library, and parks infrastructure - as planned

Hopefully there will be more candidates running so that we will actually have some kind of real choice.
As a filter my question is how does the candidate feel about the Stanford Hospital rebuilding. I also am very interested in the filter that Winston brought up as well.

real choice? what does it mean when you have nine people, five of which have to agree to get anything done? it's government by majority consensus, with nine 'mayors' making promises that can't be kept...very inefficient, very "yesterday", and very boring...

bring back the yacht harbor and sell the utilities to PG&E and you have my vote.

Good to see there is a candidate who's not part of the Chamber of Commerce.

I think it's amusing that people want to know how the candidates stand on issues. What we need is CANDIDATES period.
