Please get involved
Dear Baldwin City Residents:
With the beginning of a new year, many of us make the annual list of resolutions. We promise ourselves that we will make positive changes and improvements in our lives. Some very good people have added the responsibility of running for public office to their list of resolutions. Their determination to continue to improve and better Baldwin City through public service should be commended by all of us that choose to allow these individuals to lead us into the next phase of existence in Baldwin City.
Over the next few weeks, candidates will begin their campaigns for either mayor or city council. As residents of Baldwin City, we will have the opportunity to visit with them and make an objective decision on which candidates will represent us with open minds and solid logic.
I would hope that all eligible voters of the City of Baldwin will exercise their right to vote. Surely we have learned over the past several weeks the importance of each vote in an election. Take the time to study the issues that face Baldwin City. Don't be afraid to ask the tough questions and get involved. Education is defined as "the knowledge or skill obtained or developed by a learning process." We will have the opportunity to educate ourselves through the campaigns that will take place commencing in January
and culminating with election day in April.
If you only keep one resolution in 2001, make sure it is the one to be involved in your community and show your involvement by voting in the upcoming elections! Baldwin City is our community. Make sure your voice is a part of this community.
Baldwin City resident
