VOTING 101....

We think this is one of the most important elections this city has ever had because of the debt we are in and the direction we are headed.

Voting is a responsibility that every citizen should take seriously. That's why it's important for citizens to vote in the May 3rd primary election.

Everyone wants their voice to be heard and their opinion to count. The only way to do this is to vote and vote smart!

1.) Don't vote for the party, vote for the person.

2.) Study each candidate running for office.

3.) Look at incumbents voting record. They can say anything they want to say, but their voting record shows if they are backing it up with their actions.

4.) Find a candidate worth voting for, not against.

5.) It IS perfectly acceptable to refuse to give your vote to any candidate if you believe NONE are acceptable.

6.) Don't vote merely for the sake of voting, or blindly mark your party, because an uninformed vote is worse than NOT voting.

The big picture. There is a common tendency to vote for the candidate we like the best or the one who will help you the most, or the smoothest talker.

Instead, think about all of the people that will be affected by the candidate that gets elected to this office.

Vote Jeff Gahan on May 3rd, he will clean house downtown!
