Primary 2013: Informed voters
In only 23 days, voters will visit the polling booths and cast their votes for the candidates they hope to represent their party affiliation on the November ballot.
Some people say the citizens of Connellsville don't care about the issues. We say they're wrong.
This week, a roomful of voters attended a candidates forum hosted by the Daily Courier, where candidates for Connellsville mayor and city council answered questions regarding issues facing the city.
We commend and thank all the voters who attended the forum, which will allow them to head to the polls with additional information concerning the positions of the candidates.
We also commend and thank all the candidates who took the time to address the citizens, explaining their views on city finances, Connellsville's future and more.
On May 21, residents of Connellsville will have some important decisions to make. They will be selecting candidates in their party who they believe are best qualified to move the city forward.
We hope this week's candidates forum provided some help to local voters as they determine which candidate they will support at the polls.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
