Voting matters most when races are local

Posted: Saturday, December 2, 2017 12:00 am

On Nov. 7, 2017 there was an election in Monroe. The results of this election showed that a three-term mayor and a three-term council member were losers.

Is a case of kick-the-incumbents-out (drain the swamp) or was it repudiation of the results of these two elected officials or was it a case of local government not mattering?

    Mr. Bradley, I believe the voters in Monroe were successful in showing that change is indeed more important than rhetoric; that getting out and meeting your neighbors is more important than resting on laurels. Like you, I encourage my fellow voters to once again and vote for change. Experience isn't necessarily a positive factor if it just means "more of the same". Monroe deserves more than just "more of the same" so I would encourage voting for Sandra Shurling and Lidia Garrett.
