HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Huntsville will hold municipal elections on August 23 and voters will decide on three school board seats and two city council seats.
A third Huntsville City Council seat, District 3, is also up for election this year, but incumbent Jennie Robinson is the only qualified candidate to run in the South Huntsville District.
In order to let our viewers know more about the candidates, News 19 asked each of them to complete a detailed questionnaire covering their background and qualifications for the position, the issues they wish to address, their plans to address major issues, their thoughts on how to build trust with the Huntsville Police Department or improve teacher retention, who they admire, and what people might find surprising to learn about them.
The full questionnaire and links to candidate responses can be found here:
