The only real contests are in Districts A and C, where there are three candidates each.The Eagle-Tribune asked each of the candidates two questions about issues the city faces.
LAWRENCE — Mayor Daniel Rivera says that former mayor William Lantigua has become such a bogeyman in city politics that the best way to defeat his comeback bid in Tuesday's preliminary election is to simply to make sure voters know he's on the ballot.So Rivera recently mailed voters a campaign flyer showing a sample ballot that obliterates the names of the six other candidates in the race, placing them behind a gray shield or clipping them from the ballot entirely.
LAWRENCE — Daniel Rivera came to an interview three weeks ago to discuss his first term as mayor like a high school senior preparing for a final exam, weaponized with stacks of data – all of it upbeat – in the files he brought with him or stored in his cell phone or his head.Drug arrests during the summer's sting operations: 45 in May, another 47 in July, 66 more in August.Tax rate increases over his four-year term: 0 percent in his first year, 2.5 percent in his second, 1.7 percent last...
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
