'Sam' Boyer/special to cleveland.com BRUNSWICK, Ohio -- It happens every time. As a member of the Brunswick Area Historical Society, I love presenting historic information about the early settlers to our third-graders, and I really do get a big kick every time we talk about outhouses. So, the fact that you have to go out in all kinds of weather to a small building that covers a hole in the ground is bad enough.

The Orange County mayor is arguably the most powerful elected post in Central Florida.You deserve to know what the candidates who want to fill that post plan on doing once they get there.So I asked the three leading contenders 5 questions — most of them culled from more than 100 questions suggested by readers.The topics deal with wages, housing, arts and culture, mental health, guns, opioids, mass transit, the convention center and more.This read is long. The topics are tough. Some of the solutions complex. Some of the responses are long because they are detailed. Some of the responses are long … but don’t actually say much.I’d encourage you read with a careful and skeptical eye.Did the candidate actually answer the question? If he wants to do something new, did he say how he was going to pay for it? If so, did he propose using revenues he can actually control ... or did he say he hoped someone else would pay?The answers below are unedited.
