To the Editor:
Over the years, I have taken less interest in local political elections, concentrating on state and federal election. The reason was simple in that I had more of a pecuniary interest in those areas. I still do, but my interest in the local elections has become more important to me.
With the growth in the county with the accompanying changes, I felt incumbent upon me to educate myself on the various offices that were up for election. I found The Democrat’s series on the various offices indispensable in the selection of candidates for whom to vote without prejudice.
It is important to all of us to exercise our right to vote and to educate ourselves on the candidates with the rapid changes taking place.
I can only hope that The Democrat continues the election coverage as was done this summer. It is our future.
