On another note …….. the new voting machines I have been writing about for two years are now a reality and will be used in the upcoming Nov. election. The county will be sponsoring two public forums for our voters to have a chance to see, touch and get familiar with the new machines. These will be a hybrid system, approved by the state that combines the best of electronic selection and paper ballot security. At 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 8 at Horace Fincher Community Center in Lytle, we will have our first forum. There will be machines for you to get acquainted with there with instructors. The second forum will be 6:30 p.m. Oct. 15 at the Pleasanton Lions Club conference/party room in their building in the Pleasanton Industrial Park. I hope to see you all there.
Thanks for listening.
We want you to be proud of your County Government.
