Forums help in voter decisions


I’d like to say thank you to both the OBSERVER staff and the League of Women Voters for their excellent efforts in promoting awareness and coverage of candidates and important issues leading up to the recent elections.

Once again, the non-partisan League of Women Voters scheduled and moderated useful and informative “meet the candidate” presentations that allowed voters to see, hear, and personally assess the intelligence, candor, experience and viewpoints of those asking for their support for offices ranging from city council to county executive.

For voters unable to attend, the OBSERVER offered comprehensive coverage of these sessions, in addition to its own interviews with candidates and ongoing coverage of issues vital to our community.

Your joint efforts contribute significantly to helping voters make informed choices on election days. Well done!
