Candidate survey:


The lowdown: Political newcomer Marc Hunt is off to a strong start, having led all contenders in the primary with 22.37 percent of the vote. To maintain that momentum, he says he’s doing a mix of neighborhood canvassing and phone banking at least twice a week. “More than the way I’m running my campaign,” notes Hunt, “I hope that my ideas and principles will prevail.”

In his own words: “I am committed to a government that our citizens can trust. … Clearly there are people with different political views from myself at state- and local-level governments, but I'm very committed to have frank, open discussion and dialogue.”
