I really wish you had filled out your questionnaire for the Patch.
Eva Renee Powers April 09, 2013 at 04:02 PM
Lisa I did fill out the questionnaire
Mike McDowell April 09, 2013 at 07:55 PM
I know I filled one out also.

I read both of yours and used them to vote, Eva and Mike. Matt did not, or at least it wasn't listed. I take the questionnaires pretty seriously. They really help inform my decisions. I look at all of the ones I can find. So, thanks to the candidates who took the time to fill them out! Good luck!
