The Latest Newsletter Edition

Go vote!

Voting is quick, it’s easy, and it’s important. Every vote matters, especially in local elections that are won in the double-digit vote margins.

With early voting, head down to the Election Commission at 208 Davidson Street East – Room 106 to vote.

With interviews, this week, I’ve got new ones with the candidates for mayor as well as one with a county commission candidate.

-> Listen to my chat with mayor candidate Rick Head here.

-> Listen to my chat with current mayor Bill Newman here.

-> Listen to my chat with district seven commissioner candidate Glen Douglas here.

And make sure to check out the Guide to the County General election here. It’s all of the interviews and announcements from candidates running for office. It’ll be continually updated through election day so you’ve got the most up-to-date info to cast your vote.

Early voting ends on July 28th. If you don’t have time between now and then to vote, make sure to set aside time on the August 2nd Election Day!
