Welcome to GOOD Morning Wilton‘s Special ‘Election 2020’ Issue!
Published today are lots of resources for you as you consider who to vote for–and how to cast your vote–in this year’s election.
At the beginning of the election season, we invited all the candidates running in contested races as well as Wilton’s two political town committees to submit position statements. We also conducted video interviews with each of the candidates. You’ll find these in the links, below, in the profiles of each candidate.
We’ll also have race comparisons–easy to find side-by-side comparisons of the answers from both candidates in the two main contested state legislative races. [Editor’s Note: These will be added as they are ready throughout the day…]
