Editor’s Note: This is the second installment of our series of Dallas City Council candidate questionnaires. You can see the first here. We attempted to contact each candidate in every contested race (10 races total), and those who responded with a working email address received the same eight questions. We gave them until April 5 to respond. Below you’ll find the answers to our questions, which we did not edit or abridge.

We chose District 14 candidates Bobby Abtahi, Judy Liimatainen, and Jim Rogers to be our second group of questionnaires posted here on CandysDirt.com. District 14, a seat vacated by the popular Angela Hunt, has a wide field of candidates and is considered one of the biggest races to watch. While we sent questionnaires to all seven District 14 candidates, only three responded to our brief questionnaire. Find out more about these candidates and their views on hot-button Dallas real estate news and issues below.
