Citizens For A Better Norwood

Starting Monday: blogs by candidates for Norwood offices

We thought a good use for our blog this campaign season would be to invite candidates for both City and school board offices to submit compositions that will inform our readers about themselves, their platforms, issues they’ve identified - essentially, whatever they’d like to say in an open ended format. The only restriction we’ve applied is a 700-word limit.

Candidates for city offices will be featured first, followed by the school board candidates who accept our invitation. We plan on publishing one candidate blog per day until we’re finished, and we don’t know when that will be since the submission deadline hasn’t passed yet. We’re putting some of our regular features like the 2006 NPD Report excerpts on hiatus in favor of publishing what we think is a special feature that will help at least some Norwood voters make more informed decisions this November 6.

We want to thank Keith Moore, Co-Chair of the Norwood Democratic Club, and Vic Schneider, President of the Norwood Republican Club, for all their help inviting the candidates from their respective parties.
