Candidates for Winnebago County state’s attorney answer the questions you said were on your mind this election season
The Rockford Register Star’s election coverage is based on what community members have told us they want to hear the candidates talking about as they compete for votes. Hence the theme “You’re the Boss” — it’s the voters, after all, who are in charge of our democracy — given to this year’s election coverage. (Go to http://tiny.cc/yourelection to see more about our public-powered coverage agenda.)
Today, the two candidates for Winnebago County state’s attorney, Democrat Paul Carpenter and Republican J. Hanley, answer a series of questions concerning issues that voters tell us are uppermost in their thinking this year.
We’re asking the same questions of candidates in other races and will publish their answers in coming days. Candidates also have the opportunity to discuss other issues that are high priorities for them.
