SlowDown“We have met the enemy,” the cartoon character Pogo once said, “and he is us.” That is an apt description of Verona’s traffic problems, from speeding to texting and other bad driving behavior. So this week, asked the six candidates competing for the three open seats on the Verona Town Council to tell us how they would get their fellow Verona residents to slow down.

As with week 1week 2week 3 and week 4 of this series, candidates’ responses are listed in the order in which they were received, and did not edit the answers in any way, including grammar, spelling or length.  The candidates are Donna Cannizzaro, Carrie Ford, Edward “Ted” Giblin, Jack McEvoy,  Christopher Piccuirro and Mayor Kevin Ryan. (Clicking on each name will take you to the page in this story with their answer; you can also click on the arrows to advance through.)  You can also get to know the candidates through our 2017 Town Council Election pages. You’ll find links to all the questions we ask, and more information on each candidate.

READ  What Flag Day Means To Me will be holding a candidates forum on Wednesday, April 26, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at Congregation Beth Ahm. The forum will be videotaped by Verona High School’s Broadcast Journalism class and moderated by students from the AP Government class. The election will be held on Tuesday, May 9. 

Question 5: Speeding is a quality of life problem on many Verona streets. How would you appeal to your fellow Verona residents to get them to slow down?
