Two contested elections will highlight many of our local ballots in Affton and Shrewsbury on Election Day in April.
Residents living within the Affton Fire Protection District will see three candidates vying for one seat on the district's board. In Shrewsbury, incumbent Elmer Kauffmann will face challenger Tim Gabrian in a race to represent the city's first ward as alderman.
Aldermanic candidates also are running in Shrewsbury's second and third wards, though those races are uncontested.
As we approach the election, Patch will send each candidate a questionnaire to help empower voters to cast their ballots for the candidates they believe in.
And we would like to include all of you in the process.
What questions do you have for the candidates? Do you have a question about a particular issue in your neighborhood? Or would you like to know the candidates' viewpoints on a more general question?
Please share your questions in the comments section at the bottom of this article (but please remember to note which race you're referring to). We'll include as many submissions as we can in our candidate questionnaire.
We ask that you please ask questions that are on point and deal with the issues — this is not a forum for personal attacks on one candidate or a specific issue.
This is your election, Affton and Shrewsbury — what information do you need before heading into the voting booth? Please submit your questions by noon on Friday, March 1.
