Biography, questionnaire from local candidates posted online

The Cabinet and Telegraph have begun putting responses from local candidates for state Representative, state Senate and Executive Council seats online.

Under this program, which has run for several years, candidates can email and ask for a form, fill it out and email it back. The results are compiled and posted online.

Along with basic biographic information, the form will ask candidates to list what they consider the three most important issues facing the office they are seeking, and to give their position on each issue, condensed to a single sentence. Brevity is, even in politics, the soul of wit.

The results can be accessed via a link on the home page of the website.

The free program is for candidates for state representatives, state Senate or Executive Council whose districts include any part of Amherst, Brookline, Hollis, Lyndeborough, Milford, Merrimack, Mont Vernon or Wilton.

To receive a form, email Dave Brooks at, with “Candidate questionnaire” in the subject line.
