The question Ronald Reagan posed to voters before the 1980 election is the standard by which all elections are measured.

“Ask yourself, are you better off now than you were four years ago?” he implored. As it relates to the Tuesday, Nov. 3, municipal election, we ask, “Are the city of Worcester and its residents better off than they were two years ago?”

Worcester voters have three choices for mayor: two-term incumbent Mayor Joseph M. Petty, City Councilor-at-Large Michael T. Gaffney and William S. Coleman III.

In the course of the last six months, we have spoken with thousands of residents. We’ve listened to the candidates at every public forum and debate. We’ve read what they’ve written and listened to what they said.
