 The election of local officials this year is as important as any past year in our history. The issues facing all of us will be especially driven by the economic roller coaster we are all riding.

 We recommend you take time from your busy schedule to come out Thursday and listen to what the candidates have to say. The decisions they will make if elected will affect you and your family for generations to come.

 We hope to see you Thursday, we know that the candidates will be encouraged and inspired by a good turnout.
