KDWA has surveyed candidates in the by-election on their attitudes towards various dog-related issues of importance to its members and to Kingborough rate-payers in general. The survey contained 8 questions with plenty of space for comments beyond a simple yes/no. The survey was hosted by Google Forms and closed on Friday 26th June 2021. One candidate (Roger McGinniss) could not be contacted. Four candidates did not respond: Geean Chuckowree, Gideon Cordover, Phoenix Harrison and Roger McGinniss.

The following table summarizes the responses of candidates, and a "+" indicates where the candidate has provided further information or comment. We recommend you download and read their full answers (available below the table), as a simple "yes" does not really do justice to their responses.

About the by-election

There are 9 candidates for councillor, and 7 candidates for Mayor. Two people are running for both councillor and Mayor. You must be a councillor to be elected Mayor. Voting is by postal ballot and the voting period runs from 22 June 2021 to 12 noon 20 July 2021.
