Listen to candidate interviews

August 20, 2013 

Each election cycle, The Telegraph's Editorial Board interviews candidates for selected races in order to determine who would serve the area best. As we have done before, a citizen panel has joined the Editorial Board for those interviews and deliberated along with the board to determine who the newspaper will endorse.
