COOKEVILLE – How important is it to have a city council that is business friendly? For those who own businesses or wish to start a new one, it is very important, and the Upper Cumberland Business Journal wants to let its readers know just where the candidates stand.
The UCBJ prepared a survey to determine each candidate’s true feelings on a variety of issues affecting business in the city. All 12 candidates in the upcoming Cookeville council race were sent a link to the survey along with an email explaining the importance of the survey on Monday, May 2 with a survey return deadline of 5 p.m. on May 16. Reminders were sent to those who had not responded on Wednesday, May 11.
How do your candidates compare to the others in the race? The results will be shared with UCBJ readers the week of May 23 in a political special on the UCBJ website.
