Eleven days ago I reached out to both candidates and submitted to them, via email, three questions that I hoped they would be willing to answer. I asked for them to please submit their answers by October 26th.
The 26th came and not hearing back from either candidate I then reached out to people that I knew were supporting them. After reaching out to the candidates supporters I got word back that Cathy would submit responses to the questions but obviously not in my original timeline. I heard nothing from Will's camp.
I wish both candidates had been willing to participate, particularly since this was inspired partly by a commentor who questioned if I had reached out to Attorney Flanagan.
Since Councilor Viveiros has taken the time to respond I will post all 3 questions and her responses on Fall River Blog. At this point because I have not heard from Attorney Flanagan or his campaign, I will not accept and will not publish his responses. I believe to do so AFTER his opponents answers have been published would be unfair and unethical.
