Our position at Canton.iTownOnline is to remain neutral regarding candidates for office, and we do not provide a public endorsement of any candidate.  To facilitate an informed voting public, we do feel we provided a fair and unbiased forum for candidates to express their personal views on issues and topics of interest to voters, however, and we express our gratitude to the candidates that took time to utilize this forum for that purpose.

All above candidates are aware that this summary will be updated if additional responses are received prior to the election.

Please fulfill your civic duty during this important time for our country, our state, and our community.  Vote for the candidates of your choice on November 4th.
