Putting the power of information into the hands of the voter!

2011 Judicial Survey

2011 Judicial Survey - Florida

If you are a candidate that has come here without being contacted by a AAP volunteer, please send an email request for a candidate survey code to�[email protected] and include your name, county and contact phone number.

This survey has been designed by a committee of Judges for candidates that are running for the following offices: District Court of Appeal, Circuit Court Judge, and County Judge.� The entire survey will be posted on a website that will be available for all voters to educate themselves about the candidate and their views.�

Please read through the following questionnaire. If you do not wish to answer a question, please either choose the decline to respond option or leave the field blank. Any spaces left blank will be marked as <decline to respond> on the voter guide. Any surveys not returned will be marked as <refused to respond to this survey>. Each candidate will be given ample opportunity to respond to the survey and we will call to confirm your decision to refuse to answer the survey before we submit the information to our website/voter guides.

In order to maintain consistency and fairness in representing all candidates we have implemented the following restrictions on additional comments.

  1. No references to opposing candidates will be allowed.

  2. Response to why you are running for office will be limited to 300 words.

If you do not receive a phone or email confirmation from us within 5 business days of submitting your survey, please email [email protected] to confirm that we have received your questionnaire.

It is important to note, that while the candidates and their stand on key issues are listed in our voter information, Party affiliations are not. The Abigail Adams Project does not endorse or promote any political party or particular candidate. The Project simply informs voters on who the candidates are and where they stand on the issues, allowing the voters to decide for themselves who they want to represent them. Party affiliations are irrelevant. It is the person running that matters and not the political party they are affiliated with or whether they are affiliated with a political party at all. For that reason, the Abigail Adams Project does not include Party affiliations.

Homemakers for America is the sponsoring organization for the Abigail Adams Project and all questions regarding the project should be directed to the Florida Coordinator of Homemakers for America.

Thank you so much for your willingness to serve your country as an elected official !
