What do you want to ask municipal candidates?

Published 11:00pm Wednesday, July 25, 2012

The passing of the torch began Tuesday evening at Troy City Council, where the group declared three unopposed candidates “elected” to the offices of mayor, District 2 and District 4 council seats.

While those unopposed positions are decided, many others in Troy, Brundidge and Goshen will be decided in the Aug. 28 municipal elections.

And that’s where you, our readers, play an important role. Over the next two weeks, The Messenger will be sitting down with the candidates to discuss a variety of issues important to the voters in our communities –from education to infrastructure, property taxes to recreation, and more. Over the course of several days we’ll talk with each candidate, giving him or her the opportunity to answer questions; share a platform; and discuss the future of Troy, Goshen and Brundidge. We’ll share those answers with Pike County through the course of several articles and a special election edition.

As we interview these candidates, we want to make sure your voices are heard, as well. We’d like you to tell us what you’d like to know – either from specific candidates or specific races or topics in general you feel are most important to the future of our communities. Simply post your questions in the comments below, or email to us at editor@troymessenger.com.

We’ll take your questions and concerns directly to the candidates and, hopefully, provide you with the answers and information you need to make an informed decision at the polls on Aug. 28.
