All four candidates for Erie County commissioner have agreed to take questions and blog on our new online special section Decision '08.
This is an exciting opportunity for you, the voter, to use the story comments section under each candidate's blog to make sure your views are heard and your questions are asked. It's a new era in electoral politics, and I want to thank all four candidates for their participation. It shows courage to step into unknown territory, and we hope this portion of our special election coverage enhances the dialogue and gives readers more of a voice in the choices facing our community.
Our election coverage will include other candidate blogs in the weeks to come and will also follow the efforts of reporters Annie Zelm and Cory Frolik to land the big interviews with Barack Obama and John McCain. Keep in mind, the "Chasing the President" series is as much about the pursuit as it is the catch — but don't be surprised if they end up snagging a big one.
Go to Decision '08 — make sure your voice is heard.
