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.
