The Washington Area Bicyclist Association would like to help Rockville voters make informed choices. We asked candidates to respond to a questionnaire developed by Rockville residents. We’re posting candidate responses below, verbatim and unedited, along with links to candidate Web sites. (Note: Additional candidates may enter the race. The deadline for nominating petitions is Friday, Sept. 8, 2023.)

We hope the questionnaire responses are useful in informing your voting.
