Over the past several municipal elections, Pillar Nonprofit Network has asked candidates running for municipal office to answer questions around issues that we felt were important in the community. This year, the questions we asked were around inclusion and equity because it has been identified as a key issue and area of focus in our community and as part of Pillar’s strategic plan.
