Daily News Questionnaire

Check out Norman’s campaign questionnaire for the Daily News to find out Norman’s top three priorities upon taking office, his feelings on the other candidates, and why he feels he’s the best man for the job.

Personally, my favorite part of the questionnaire might be the last question and answer:

After raising money from special interest groups and seeking endorsements from partisan outlets, how can you still be an independent watchdog?

This is a relatively easy question for me to answer because I have not received significant funding from special interest groups, possibly because I have frequently spoken out or taken action against powerful institutions in this city. I strongly oppose the quid pro quo and pay-to-play practices that have come to typify and demean our political system. I have not made promises in exchange for political support that would compromise my ability to be independent and hold government accountable.

Once again, feel free to check out the entire Daily News questionnaire by clicking on this link.
