By appearing on Refreshing 90.9 fm’s “Preparing for the Polls” series, candidates or representatives of issues are not being endorsed by the station. We provide this information as a public service. We have made an attempt to contact all candidates or representatives of the contests we are featuring on our series. It is solely the candidate’s or representative’s decision to appear on the show. In some cases, there are no organized groups opposing issues we are featuring. If there are any that we have overlooked, we are happy to provide equal time for that group.
