As you head to polls today, hear from city, school candidates in their own words on the biggest issues
Editor’s Note: As part of a Voters Guide that LJWorld.com published last month, we asked each Lawrence City Commission and Lawrence school board candidate in this year’s primary election to provide written responses to three questions regarding current issues facing the city or the school district. Each candidate was given 600 words in total to respond to the three questions. The Journal-World staff compiled a brief biography of each candidate using information from past interviews and their candidate filings and websites. The responses to each question, however, are entirely the candidates’ own words. The only editing the Journal-World did to the responses was for obvious typographical errors.
As voting concludes today — polls are open until 7 p.m. — LJWorld.com is republishing these questions and answers. Click the links below to see the responses of each candidate.
Check LJWorld.com this evening for updates on vote totals. The top six finishers in both the city and school races will advance to the general election, which will be in November. Voters are able to vote for three candidates in each of the races.
