Note to raders: I made an error in the original article when I relied on a source’s representation that these questions came from the YMCA. They are actually from the Health and Wellness Coalition of Wichita. The YMCA is just one of several dozen members of this group.
Here are the questions asked of candidates:
- Describe the connection between the built environment and community health.
- What is city government’s role in creating a more pedestrian/bike friendly environment?
- How can a city get engaged in promoting healthy eating?
The last question is especially troublesome.
