With the municipal primary set for May 21, it's not too early to think about your choices for Connellsville mayor and city council.

On Monday, the Daily Courier will sponsor a candidates forum for those whose names appear on the ballot for Connellsville mayor and city council. All three Democrat mayoral candidates (incumbent Charles Matthews, Greg Lincoln and Josh DeWitt), along with the Republican (Aaron Zolbrod) and Democrat (Tom Karpiak) seeking seats on city council, have agreed to participate.

The candidates will address issues facing the Connellsville community. The questions for the candidates have been suggest by our readers.

It's important for voters to be well-informed before they visit the voting booth. They should know where the candidates stand on the issues.

And candidates should gain our votes based on their ability to serve — not on who's friends with whom.

We encourage residents to attend Monday's forum, which is scheduled from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the auditorium of the Carnegie Free Library on South Pittsburgh Street.

The answers the candidates give could help you choose the leaders of the city for the next four years.
