2021 Candidate Profile
This year we're giving candidates for local elected office the opportunity to share their perspective with voters and readers of FingerLakes1.com in a new way. Each week, our website is accessed more than 6 million times. Instead of providing readers with a one-shot opportunity to discuss issues on a podcast -- we're giving them the opportunity to have a permanent home on our website.

FOR CANDIDATES: Answer the following questions as thoroughly and completely as possible. There are no word limits, but keep in mind that brevity is still important to successfully reach voters. After answers are received -- they will be processed and published. Please note that they will not be modified, edited, or corrected -- so read them carefully before hitting 'send'. They will be processed within 48 hours and published on FingerLakes1.com.

Upon successful completion/publication we will return a link for the candidate and/or team representing them via email. Thanks for your participation!

This poses challenges on a number of fronts (whether it be related to services or attracting a younger population for that long-term sustainability).
