2020 Candidates

Wilmington city council members and the Wilmington mayor have a unique power in the fight for police reform. That’s why it’s so important to learn where the candidates stand on this important issue, to elect candidates who are reform-committed, and then to hold them accountable to their promises.

We sent a candidate questionnaire to each city council and mayoral candidate in the 2020 Wilmington elections to learn their positions on police reform. Their answers will be posted below as they’re received. Learn where your candidates stand, then #VoteSmartJustice in the State Primary and General Elections.

Races

Mayor | City Council President | City Treasurer | City Council At-Large | District 1 | District 2 | District 3 | District 4 | District 5 | District 6 | District 7 | District 8
