  1. I found the questionnaires helpful, but the forum gave me a real sense of the candidates.
    I will vote for Ms Dunn & Ms Shaw.

  2. LWV:

    Shouldn’t Montclair get a discounted elections price from Essex County as they gave us Certification Envelopes leftover from the Primaries for our mail-in ballots?

    We don’t have SCAC anymore so there is no one to explain to us seniors how to complete the return certification envelope.
