Vote tomorrow

One of the characters in the recent Stagecoach Players production of “Born Yesterday” said that one of the biggest problems facing society is “don’t care-ism.” Those words, written in 1946, are equally true today.

People who don’t vote, don’t care—they don’t care about our schools, taxes or our children. And this problem is present right here in DeKalb. Only 17 percent—that’s right, 17 percent—of the registered voters participated in the last election for the DeKalb Board of Education.

This year, the election will be on Tuesday, Nov. 5. The voters have a choice between candidates who have conducted active campaigns. Voters can examine the credentials, experience, demeanor and philosophies of the candidates and then make the decisions which will affect our community for years to come.

As a candidate for election to the Board, I urge everyone to VOTE ON NOV. 5. The best way to show the teachers, administration and students that we taxpayers and parents care about the schools is to exercise our constitutional right to vote.

So, please join me at the polls and vote on Nov. 5.

Very truly yours,
