Well, we can’t really decide that for you. Be sure to check out the candidates for Mayor,
Councillor and School Board Trustee. There are many groups and websites dedicated to
“grading” candidates and releasing “report cards” on particular issues. Below is a list
of such websites. There are many more issues out there too; this list is not exhaustive.
