We’ve been hard at work talking to the City Council and Mayoral candidates throughout the last few weeks. The goal was to give them a different platform than they have had to date, a chance to give fuller answers than the MCTV forums and to speak one-on-one to voters. The hope is that between the MCTV, Valley Patriot and these interviews, you go to the ballot box on Nov. 5 feeling confident you’re well informed to make vote choices.
Here are all the interviews on one web page. We will update this page as we add more interviews.
