No election issues?

March 15, 2007

We marvel when people make the comment that there are no "issues," no hot-button topics or any other similar phrases regarding the upcoming April 3 general election in Baldwin City.

That's simply not true. All one needs to do is look in today's Signal or, for that matter, any Signal over the past years to know there are issues ... lots of them. Today's is no exception.

Repair Baldwin Elementary School Primary Center or build a new one? Questions don't get much tougher than that. There's another story on the much-talked-about bond issue that will be done in the next year -- we hope.

Those two go hand in hand. What's the school district going to do? What will the school board decide? Who will we decide to be on the school board?

Yes, we all have a stake in the election and, more importantly, in the future of Baldwin City and the school district. Get to know where the candidates stand. Profiles, which have run in previous issues of the Signal, can be found on the Web site at www.baldwincity.com in the Election 2007 section. Additional profiles will follow.

Be prepared and, most of all, vote.
