Hey Keri, any chance of posting campaign email addresses for the candidates so that community members can write to them to share concerns, questions, or ideas?
Keri Brenner (Editor) September 06, 2012 at 06:10 PM
Hmmm...good idea. Let me check on that. I'll look into it...

I don't have a campaign e-mail address and my current e-mail account is really full. How about just giving me a call at 431-2141. I would be my pleasure to hear from you and talk about things of mutual interest. Vernon Simmons

Vernon Simmons: Thanks Vern for your willingness to be accessible to Healdsburg citizens and voters. How do the rest of the City Council candidates feel about publishing either their email addresses or their phone numbers if people have questions? In the interim, if anyone has a question he or she would like Patch to forward to a candidate, please email me at keri.brenner@patch.com. Alternatively, people may post questions in this comment space as well. Thanks!
