informed voter

We have pulled together this information in the hopes of creating a clearer picture of just who we vote for and when we vote for them. For each office, we aim to answer a few questions. Who? Area Served? Term Limits? Next Election? During election season, we’ll also include links to campaign websites and facebook pages.
