Kuna mayoral candidates get their say

This week in the Kuna Melba News, you may notice that we’re publishing three stories on the three candidates for Kuna mayor. Just a few quick notes on the interviews and stories. Each interview took two hours and 11 minutes. This was completely coincidental, and I was surprised that the length of the interviews came out exactly the same for each candidate. Each article is about 2,100 words, or about three-and-a-half times the length of a typical Editor’s Notebook. Some of what was said in the interviews didn’t make it into the stories, primarily because of space.

Thanks for devoting your time and energy to interviewing the candidates. Since Rich Cardoza is the only Mayoral candidate to show up at any of the public forums so far, your interviews were helpful in letting me know what the other candidates' positions are. Now let's hope all the candidates show up at the forums this week, so the public will have a chance to further explore those positions.
