As a way to provide information to the public about the candidates for the City Council and Mayoral Election, we are featuring a series of interviews with candidates that have been certified by the Holyoke City Clerk.

On these interviews, the candidates have the opportunity to present their platform, motivations to serve, and their background, in order to provide an open perspective of themselves as candidates to be elected or re-elected, and allowing the public to have a more informed decision when voting on November 7th, 2017.

All certified candidates will have equal opportunity to participate in this series.

The radioplasma podcast does not support or oppose any candidate for public office. This is a nonpartisan, independent media outlet, dedicated to promoting a peace culture, embrace diversity, conversations, sharing of opinions and ideas, and ensure diverse voices are represented in our media.
