Vol. II No. 02 1/15/2021
Local Elections 2021
Stockbridge Updates will publish "Stockbridge Candidates Q & A" before election day in May 2021. We will videotape the candidates' answers or print them, whichever the candidate prefers. We invite all running to retain their seats and to those challenging them to please contact Stockbridge Updates and schedule an interview. To assure fairness, we will collect statements and answers whenever the candidate is ready and publish them all in the same issue. SU will provide space/time for an opening statement and then ask three questions of each. The "Stockbridge Candidates Q & A" will appear in the May 1 issue of Stockbridge Updates. Thank you. An informed electorate is the first priority of Stockbridge Updates.
