  1. Thanks for posting this!
    We’re really excited to jump into covering the municipal race as it heats up.
    We would love to hear any feedback people have on ways to improve, or voices we should include!

  2. Is there any way I can just drop out and check back in when it’s all over?
    I’m sure whatever happens I’ll survive.
