This week, will be wrapping up its 5 for 5 interviews with the local candidates.

Through the series, we asked those seeking legislative seats at the town and county levels to give us five great ideas, or policy goals, that could be achieved or set into motion over the next five years.

We’re publishing their responses one by one, and also set up a 5 for 5 tab on the homepage.

Even though it’s a local election year, much of the political discussion around town has remained on national politics. (As is often the case.) This got us to wondering how local readers feel, and if they plan to vote Nov. 3.
