Stranger Election Control Board

The Stranger Election Control board is composed of staff writers and editors who volunteer to grill, research, fight over, and ultimately endorse candidates running for office in local, state, and federal elections. The SECB does not endorse in uncontested races, or in races we forgot. 

Current members include Hannah Krieg, Vivian McCall, Charles Mudede, Ashley Nerbovig, Megan Seling, a guy Bruce Harrell grew up with, and Rich Smith.
