A couple weeks ago, the site www.whatdotheystandfor.org was launched, with the goal of providing Toledo voters with an unbiased source of information on this year's candidates for mayor.
Since the launch of the site, we've made several improvements. Videos of the candidates are now on the site, and the format has been adjusted slightly for additional functionality and ease of use.
We added some new questions and answers, and are always seeking new questions from visitors to the site to ask the candidates. We hope you'll find the information on the site useful, and remember to vote on Tuesday!
Excellent! Publicly pinning down candidates on the issues is a very important idea. Fewer and fewer folks read (or trust) newspapers these days. A site like this could be an important resource.
Info about http://whatdotheystandfor.org from an Oct 14, 2009 press release:
WhatDoTheyStandFor.org is now covering the 2009 Toledo City Council race. WhatDoTheyStandFor.org sends questions to all of the candidates, and then posts their responses in a user-friendly side-by-side format. Since the site’s administrators do not edit the candidates’ content, the result is a candid, nonpartisan review of the candidates’ positions on the issues of the campaign. In addition to voting in the polls and participating in the forums, visitors to the site are encouraged to interact with the candidates by submitting questions, which may then be passed on to the campaigns, and have the answers posted on the site.
