    Candidates Webpages

    Toby, thank you very much for this information.
    I just contacted the Chamber and asked for the webpages of the Candidates such as Robin Sword, J.P. had when she was running for the School Board.
    It is nice to have a *pre* meeting to better ascertain the Candidates position and stance on things.
    If the Chamber provides the answer we will send the URL’s to you.
    Again, thanx.
