KDWA has surveyed candidates in the 2022 Council 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 30th September 2022. One candidate (David McQuillan) could not be contacted and two candidates did not respond (Mark Richardson and Christian Street).

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 one word summary does not do justice to their responses.
