Below are the questions that were asked as well as the full interviews of all who participated.Questions: 1. (*Challenging candidates) Obviously, you’re seeking office because you feel the North State can be better represented.

(*Incumbents) Obviously, your challengers are seeking office because they feel the North State can be better represented. Can you explain three key policy areas where you think you’re more in step with local voters than those running against you?2. Illegal immigration and cannabis seem to have joined abortion and firearms as wedge issues in a supposed culture war across the nation. Where do you stand on each of these issues, and how much latitude should states have to set their own rules?3. The North State differs from the rest of California in many ways. What is the most critical challenge that the North State faces and how would you help address this challenge?4. Our region is the source of much of the state’s water supply. Do you think there is anything wrong with the current system, and what is your stance on current water infrastructure proposals -- such as raising the height of Shasta Dam and building Sites Reservoir and the Delta bypass tunnels?5. Homelessness has become an entrenched problem for most communities, but remedies are elusive. What effective measures might be taken at the federal level to end homelessness?6. Congress is entrusted with the power of the purse -- budgeting and spending public money. What policy areas and programs do you think deserve more money, and what would be the source of that money?
