Local candidates’ stories appreciated

Thank you for the series on local candidates. As someone living in the area with business interests forcing me to spend considerable time and energy away from the local scene, the articles are quite helpful in providing an understanding of the candidate as a person, and just not as a position statement on issues that often don’t have any relevance to the office sought.

I applaud your efforts, as a local paper, to focus on the community served. In the future, I hope you continue to do so, with regard to politics, community issues and even local sports.

That focus is appreciated by people like me who are fortunate enough to live here, but who still must look outside the community for a living.
