That's it? Considering my sample ballot is two pages, I expected more here.

Hi DMW, An earlier version posted without complete information. Patch regrets the inconvenience.
Well, That's Interesting! November 05, 2013 at 02:02 PM
What a shame that two seats are going up uncontested. A chance for change, and nobody is taking it.
