Election season heats up
Placeholder Image
We are glad that some qualified candidates have either thrown their hats in the ring or are thinking about running for the three soon to be vacant seats on the Newton County Board of Education.

With a new superintendant, we need intelligent, visionary leadership on the board - people who know and are passionate about the success of our community.

If you have been on the fence about seeking political office, now is the time to hop down and become involved in our children's and community's future.

We also are more than pleased to see some folks running for the seat currently held by Toney Collins, who is our state representative in District 95.

It's bad enough that the 95th encompasses just a sliver of Newton County; it's worse that we have no voice to represent it.
