Wolcott Election Coming Soon!

by Christopher O'Brien

Wolcott residents have an opportunity to choose their locally elected leaders every two years. From appeals boards to Mayor, many of our neighbors volunteer their time to ensure our government runs smoothly and fairly. We choose residents to manage education curriculum, approve school contracts, and oversee our superintendant. Other residents will be chosen to manage the town’s budgets and set a tax rate for the next two years. Another resident will be chosen to collect those taxes and also be fair to those who are hampered by the economy in paying their taxes.

 

In all, 31 slots are open for elected office on November 5th. Yet, of the 50 candidates, whom will you choose? And what rational will you select one candidate over another?

In the coming four weeks, the Whisper will run articles about the election and profiles about the candidates. Every candidate is invited to submit a profile and will be asked to answer a few questions. These are intended so the public can make an informed choice for their leaders.

All residents are also invited to submit their views on any issue they feel is important, or endorsing any particular candidate.

 

All submissions may be editted for clarity and space and letters generally should be less than 550 words. Please e-mail us at WolcottWhisper@gmail.com .
