Know Your Candidates (2019)

The Holyoke Municipal Election Day is Tuesday, November 5th, 2019.

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

This is the Series “Know Your Candidates”.

Candidates are being invited 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 the preliminary election of September 24, if necessary, and the Municipal election on November 5th, 2019.

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

To see the official list of candidates, you can visit the City Clerk site:
