2014 Candidate Ratings

Our ratings are unique because they do not consider a candidate’s political affiliations or standing on specific issues. Instead, the goal is to determine the candidate’s potential to be effective in office. The process is similar to a job interview – with a diverse group of citizens serving as hiring managers. The result has been called a “Better Business Bureau” for voters.
