Ithaca, N.Y. — I’ll be sitting down with Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick at City Hall tomorrow morning for an interview. I have my own questions prepared, but I wanted to get a better sense of readers’ priorities and concerns.

As a result, I’m posting a poll below to gauge what you would most like to learn about. So many of these issues are clearly of critical importance; we’re looking to you, however, to help us decide which deserve most attention.

Of course, there’s the possibility that we’ve left out the topic you find most important. If that’s the case, be sure to pop over to our Facebook page and drop a comment. (Or, if you’d prefer, email me at jstein@ithacavoice.com.)

In addition to using the poll results to guide my questions, I’ll be asking the mayor at least two questions — and, depending how many we get, possibly more — straight from our Facebook readership.

Here’s the poll:

We plan to post a story later in the week after the interview, which — just to be clear — has no relation to this one.
