Ask the candidates


Keep the conversation going by asking the candidates questions about arts and culture. Raise your hand at events, tweet at the candidates, email them, and pose questions on their Facebook pages about their positions on arts, culture, and creativity. 

You can pull a question from Create the Vote - Fitchburg and Lunenberg's arts & culture questionnaire, or use one from below.

Sample questions to ask in person:

What will you do as representative to champion arts education for our youth both in our schools and in our community?

How would you grow the arts budget across the Commonwealth, and particularly in North Central Massachusetts?

How will you support the transformation of the B. F. Brown building into space for creative entrepreneurs and help revitalize downtown Fitchburg?
