It's Election Season: Here Are Your Candidates

I met Brent Spodek at a party in August, and while we were talking about Beacon and journalism, this idea occurred: use beaconcitizen.com as a resource for the upcoming election. There were actually televised debates in 2007:

 

 

But I'm not sure what journalistic resources exist this election season.

 

These are the Republicans running:

 

BEACON MAYOR: RANDY J. CASALE

BEACON CITY COUNCIL 1ST WARD: DIANE SPIAK-PISANELLI

BEACON CITY COUNCIL 2ND WARD: PAMELA SEEGLER

BEACON CITY COUNCIL 3RD WARD: AGNES M. COMPAGNONE

BEACON CITY COUNCIL 4TH WARD: THOMAS J. CUNNINGHAM

BEACON CITY COUNCIL AT-LARGE: JUSTIN RICCOBONO

BEACON CITY COUNCIL AT-LARGE: JOSEPH GALBO

DUTCHESS COUNTY LEGISLATURE DISTRICT 18: JOHN V. FORMAN

DUTCHESS COUNTY LEGISLATURE DISTRICT 16: ORI BRACHFELD

DUTCHESS COUNTY EXECUTIVE: MARCUS MOLINARO

These are the Democrats running:

 

BEACON MAYOR: STEVE GOLD

BEACON CITY COUNCIL 1ST WARD: MARLENE FREDERICKS

BEACON CITY COUNCIL 2ND WARD: CHARLIE KELLY

BEACON CITY COUNCIL 3RD WARD: BEN GIARDULLO

BEACON CITY COUNCIL 4TH WARD: SARA PASTI

BEACON CITY COUNCIL AT-LARGE: ALI MUHAMMAD

BEACON CITY COUNCIL AT-LARGE: GEORGE MANSFIELD

DUTCHESS COUNTY LEGISLATURE DISTRICT 18: JERRY LANDISI

DUTCHESS COUNTY LEGISLATURE DISTRICT 16: ALISON MACAVERY

DUTCHESS COUNTY EXECUTIVE: DAN FRENCH

These are the county level resources:

http://www.dutchessdems.com/

http://www.dutchessgop.org/

http://www.dutchesselections.com/

 

And the League of Women Voters has a good resource:

http://www.smartvoter.org/voter/judgecan.html

 

Please tell me if I am leaving someone out, or if there is any other resource you know of that is worthy of consideration for Beacon's citizens as they ponder their vote. I've omitted the justices. I am not aware of third party or independents who are running. I will edit this post if it needs correction.

I originally had the idea to ask the candidates questions here in the comment area, and then bundle the questions off to be answered on this site later, but the Bud Siegel/ Charlene Vesuvius account notes that there is a better forum for that coming up (and the comments were way off topic, they have been deleted).

An alternative is the major Beacon Candidates Forum at the high school on October 19th.  I understand that suggestion boxes for questions are going up all over town and also online.  This forum looks well organized.  I'm reserving my questions for that event.
