When you think of local elections, it is hard not to think of two or more candidates duking it out over a coveted seat on a prestigious board. Elections are so much more than that, however. They are also time to touch base with the people who are representing you in your town, share your thoughts with them, and hear what they have to say. After all, if you don’t know their positions, how do you know if they truly do represent you. The League of Women Voters of Needham pulled together some of the people who were running for office without anyone running against them. They asked the Needham High School LWV Club to interview the candidates, to get a sense of who these town leaders are, and why they are so passionate about serving the town.
