Have you ever read a Sunday newspaper profile of a candidate running for office?

It’s an article where the writer doesn’t necessarily delve into the politics of a given candidate, but concentrates more on who they are, where they’re from, and why they’re running.

This is a newspaper profile, but in podcast form.

The Valley Indy sat down with Ansonia’s Tarek Raslan for an hour to talk about why he decided to move to the city two years ago, why he decided to withdraw from high school, whether his family’s real estate business has considered making investments in Ansonia, and much more.

We’ve also invited Raslan’s opponent, Mayor David Cassetti, to record a podcast as well.

Please press play to listen!
