Out and About
Some of you have already responded to our invitation, but if you haven’t, please take some time out of your busy campaigning schedule and submit your information to be included in our 2012 Election Guide. Send us a 250 word write up and a photo of yourself. If you don’t have one, we’ll be glad to help you out and take one of you to be included. You can either email it to me, mail or fax (not the photo, though) to us by March 30. It will appear in the April 18 issue. It will include the city and school candidates as well as the primary candidates. It is a free service. Remember, all political minded letters to the editor will cease one month prior to the elections.
