The Bulletin asked local candidates — senator, representative and judge — to submit a photo and short biography and to answer a question pertaining to their contest. See how the candidates of the following races answered their questions:

26th Senate District (Toni Boucher and Phil Sharlach): What do you see as the three most important things you could do in Hartford, and how would you work to bring them about?

125th General Assembly District (Tom O'Dea and David Bedell): What are the top three issues that you think the state Senate should address during the next term?

• 143rd General Assembly District (Gail Lavielle and Keith Rodgerson): What do you see as the three most important things you could do in Hartford, and how would you work to bring them about?

• Probate Judge (Anthony DePanfilis and Darnell Crosland): Why are you the best candidate for this position?
