During these challenging times, we can still take action in many positive ways that contribute to our own well-being and that of our community.
School boards have a direct effect on the health and welfare of our children, and the results ripple out to touch the whole community. Even if you don’t have children, or don’t have children currently in our schools, voting for school board members is an important civic duty that contributes to our democratic society.
Please take a few moments to learn about the candidates in your district by reading about them in The Journal or by attending a forum for that purpose. Ballots will be showing up in mailboxes after Oct. 11. Look for them in the mail, make sure to vote for school board members, and turn them in by 5 p.m. Nov. 2, Election Day, at one of the ballot boxes in the county.
