Election Day is coming up, this Tuesday, November 6. We are fortunate to have some very capable people running for office in our region,
Regardless of your political party or stand on any of the issues, Election Day is our chance to vote for the people we think will best represent us.
To quote President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1944:
"Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves—and the only way they could do that is by not voting at all."
"The continuing health and vigor of our democratic system depends on the public spirit and devotion of its citizens which find expression in the ballot box."
"Every man and every woman in this Nation—regardless of party—who have the right to register and to vote, and the opportunity to register and to vote, have also the sacred obligation to register and to vote. For the free and secret ballot is the real keystone of our American Constitutional system."
Please be sure you take time to vote on Tuesday!
