To help voters meet the candidates and learn about their views, is asking every candidate to respond to a weekly question about the issues facing Verona. Questions are sent to the candidates on Friday and the deadline to respond is noon on Tuesday. Candidates’ responses are listed in the order in which they were received, and did not edit the answers in any way, whether for grammar, spelling or length. Candidates were also asked to send a photo, and the links to their campaign websites or social media, if they had them. Those links are included here.

A new question will be sent to candidates every Friday through May 3. The candidates will also respond to questions during a forum to be conducted by the Junior Woman’s Club on Wednesday, May 1, at the Verona Community Center.
