Letter: ‘Election Guide not helpful’



I have to say I did not find the Election Guide (Current in Westfield, April 30) to be particularly helpful. I was informed of the candidates’ spouses, children, dogs, pet rats, rabbits, and their names, along with the candidates’ various community activities, but precious little about why I should vote for any of them. Undoubtedly their listed websites offered more useful information, but I had little interest in spending an hour or two on researching the eight candidates listed in contested elections. I had hoped that the Election Guide would distill much of that information for me.
