Municipal elections are coming up May 4, and the Advocate is covering several races, including the Dallas City Council race for district 10. We’re planning to provide:

• A candidate “cheat sheet” with pertinent details of who they are and what they stand for;
• Information on candidate forums, meet and greets and other non-fundraising events where neighbors can get to know candidates;
• Details on who is funding the campaigns and how much money candidates have raised, as that information is filed; and
• Candidates’ answers to questions that we (and you!) pose to them.

Any coverage beyond this is really up to you, and here’s what we mean by that: We want to know what matters to you and your neighborhood.

• What kind of reporting would help you differentiate the candidates?
• What questions do you have for the candidates, and what concerns do you have about the city?
• What would motivate you and your neighbors to cast a vote?

What we hear from neighbors will inform which stories we pursue. The point person for the district 10 race is Elissa Chudwin, who can be reached at Over the next week, neighborhood and homeowner association boards will hear directly from her about further collaboration.

Let us know your questions, and take a minute to read how the race is shaping up so far:
