Early voting in the city council and school board races begins Monday, April, 22, and the E-T is planning its annual Candidate Q&A to help readers learn more about candidates running for local office.

The Q&As will be featured in the Saturday, April 20, edition of the E-T. 

The candidates will be emailed five questions pertaining to their particular race, and will email back their responses, which will be printed exactly as they are submitted.

This year’s candidates include Ricky Thurman and Bradley Oglesby for Stephenville City Council; incumbent Dr. Ann Calahan and challenger Phyllis Stewart for SISD Board of Trustees; and incumbent Scott Osman and challenger Monty Stone for SISD Board of Trustees.

The community is invited to submit questions for consideration.
