To help voters make up their minds in the 2022 Primary Election, the Bonner County Daily Bee asked candidates in contested races a series of questions on why they are running, what they feel are the most important issues in their respective races and what they would accomplish if elected.
Below are the questions each of the candidates were asked and, in the pages that follow, the responses by all of the candidates.
- What would be your priorities in your first 90 days in office if you are elected?

- Do you think the existing government is going in the right direction? Why or why not? (Please be specific.)
- What is the most critical issue in your race and how would you address it?
- What issue is not being given enough exposure in your race? What is it and why is it important?
