From the Mailbag:
In the mailbag today we found a timely reminder from Lee Sturdivant to become informed voters before the August 2 primary…
Don’t forget: We all get to vote.
Ballots for the August 2nd primary election just landed in our mail boxes. Every San Juan County voter has the right to vote for a candidate in the District 1 race for County Council. By law, the candidates are all from the San Juan Island residency districts but voting is county-wide, and I hope that my fellow voters – no matter where they live in the county – will exercise their right to vote for a candidate in this important race.
Under our County charter, we have three council members elected from three residency districts, but they each represent all of us, or at least they should. We get the best possible representation when we recognize that each candidate and council position matters to our island, our neighborhood, and our family. So please, if you haven’t already, find out about all the candidates – and then vote for the best candidate for each seat. And, if you don’t know the people running, take an extra minute to find out about each candidate.
