The Sierra Vista Herald/Review held an informational meeting for candidates this morning, and I wanted to pass on some of what I learned.
1️⃣️The Herald/Review will not be endorsing any local candidates. Nor, will they be publishing endorsements by other parties. This was not the case in the past, but I think it's a positive change. 2️⃣️If any candidate gets a story/article, the paper will reach out to the other candidates to allow them an opportunity for coverage as well.
3️⃣️For those of you that receive the Sierra Vista Area Chamber of Commerce newsletter, this will not be news. The Chamber and Herald/Review will be hosting candidate forums at the Buena Performing Arts Center in October. As of now, City Council Candidates Forum will be on October 17th, and the Mayoral Candidates Forum will be held on October 24th.
Thanks to Tim Woods, Jennifer Sorenson, and Becky Bjork for patiently answering all our questions this morning and keeping us informed.
