Newton Candidates Questionnaires 2017

Progressive Newton is excited to announce its 2017 candidate endorsement process.

A few weeks ago, all candidates for local office in Newton were sent a survey on issues of local and state importance.  Below are the ones we have received so far.  We expect to add a few more over this next week.

Based on these surveys and the recommendation of our endorsement committee, we’ll be asking our members to see which candidates you want to see us endorse.

In order to participate in the endorsement vote, all you need to do is be progressive, live in Newton, and to be an active member of Progressive Newton / Progressive Massachusetts by Monday, September 4th!
