Candidate selector tool available on Pilot Web site

The Steamboat Pilot & Today has developed a “candidate selector” tool on its election Web site.

The candidate selector is a multiple-choice test on city issues that the Pilot & Today gave to all City Council candidates. Candidates were asked to select the answer that most closely resembled their views. The responses were entered into a database on the Web site. Now users can take the same test and see which candidates’ views most closely reflect their own.

Users can test the selector at the Pilot & Today’s online Election Guide: http://www.steamboatpilot.com/section/election_2005/
