Seeking local election pointers

For the past year or so, I’ve been eating, breathing, and living national politics, but I’m ashamed to say I know nothing about any of the local races, not even who’s running. (And if there are any local ballot questions, I don’t know about them.)

So I’d love to have any information anybody has to offer about Quincy-specific stuff on the ballot, so I have a little more to go on than party affiliation. If anybody has links to election cheatsheets on news sites (or even just a list of the names on the ballot in Quincy), that would be great. If anybody wants to explain how they plan to vote in any particular race and why, that would also be great.


PS — It’s likely that we’re not going to agree about all this, so if you see somebody arguing against your candidate (who supports fluffy kittens and all that is virtuous) and for your candidate’s opponent (who as everyone knows is running on a platform of enslaving all of humanity to hideous tentacled demons from beneath the waves), please remember the immortal words of Bill and Ted and “be excellent to each other”. :-)

[EDIT: Oops! I meant to post this to quincy_ma, not my personal journal. I was puzzled why people who don’t live in Quincy were replying. But thanks! Your responses were very useful!]
