Send us your questions
Many newsrooms decide which topics to cover when interviewing candidates.
At OCN, we believe that the people for whose vote the political hopefuls are vying are the people they should answer to.
For the second year, OCN is putting the power with the people by collecting your questions and concerns and then passing those along to the candidates in the Nov. 8 election. We’ll publish their answers to help you decide whether they’re the right representative for you.
