If you listen closely, you can almost hear it, the sound of people running for local office. Dave Sullivan has easily defeated Linda Pereira and will go unopposed on the November ballot. Mike Rodrigues never really faced any competition so he too, will go unchallenged come November. Things are a little different for Kevin Aguiar, he is facing a Republican challenger in CJ Ferry.
Listen closely, you can almost hear them campaigning! It’s kind of like the old saying “If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?” If your running for election and the media doesn’t pay attention does - you get the idea.
Where do these guys stand? What are their positions? What issues do you as a voter care about? Let’s consider this an exercise in citizen journalism. Tell me what questions you would like to get the answers to. I will submit the best 5 (in my opinion) to both candidates and ask them to respond. The candidates will be asked to limit their responses to 500 words. I will then post the responses on www.fallriverblog.com.
Thanks for participating!
