While there is a lot of hubbub around town on who may or may not end up in the race to succeed Joyce Spiliotis, we'd like to ask a related question.
What are you looking for in your next state representative?
The late Spiliotis' political career was marked by her constituent services -- she was a popular representative in Peabody, had close relationships with many of her constituents and was regarded as a tireless advocate for their concerns.
So what are the most pressing concerns for you in electing a new representative on Beacon Hill?
