In Their Own Words

— Area voters have yet another opportunity to educate themselves on those seeking political office by reading information provided directly to us by the candidates themselves.

“In Their Own Words” appears in a special section of today’s edition. Candidates were given the chance to submit a 250 word profile. We adhered to a strict 250 word limit that some candidates did exceed, so some submissions end mid-sentence.  Also, two candidates for Nicholas County magistrate have their profiles appearing on page 5A.

We hope our loyal readers use these profiles as a source of information in the process of selecting who they choose to vote for.
