Candidates for statewide office and for Jefferson Parish president who are interested in Gambit Weekly's endorsement should call Sarah Andert at 483-3110 (or email firstname.lastname@example.org) to schedule an interview with our editorial board.
All other candidates in Orleans and Jefferson parishes " including those running for legislative seats " are asked to fill out our online questionnaire, which can be accessed at www.bestofneworleans.com. Candidates may contact Andert to request a fax or email copy of the questionnaire. The questionnaires must be completed and returned by noon on Friday, Sept. 28.
We will post candidates' responses online as well at Gambit Weekly's Web site so our readers can have more information about candidates and issues before casting their votes.
Gambit Weekly will consider endorsing candidates in the following races:
Governor and all other statewide contests.

State Senate Districts 2-10.
