The edition is the largest ever, with 20 pages, 12 of them in a pull-out section with comprehensive coverage of candidates and issues in the Nov. 8 election: profiles of each candidate for state representative and the City Council, a story about issues in the legislative race, and a story about the council candidates' two forums.
The edition includes many stories that have not been published online but will be posted in the next few days. The profiles of City Council candidates appear on a special page, here.
