Candidate Grade Card

Each candidate came in for 15-20 minutes to answer 4 Chamber related questions. The board members then gave the candidate a letter grade for their answers. Those questions and the final report card are also posted on our Facebook and website with a description of how the interview took place and how the grades were tallied. This is not an endorsement, just a simple report card on how the candidates answered the questions relating to the Chamber. Our goal was to educate ourselves and to share the findings. All grading was done independently and scores were averaged for the overall grade. Ten board members participated, Kyle Heaton abstained as one of his Port Commissioners is running.
