Your vote does count
To the editor:
The Retired School Administrators of Washington County conducted three candidate forums in the last two months. In the three forums, the candidates for the Board of Education and the County Commissioners made presentations and answered questions on relevant issues facing the county school system and county government.
We thank the candidates for their participation in the forums and we wish them success in the upcoming primary election on Sept. 12. We also want to thank The Herald-Mail, Antietam Cable Television, the League of Women Voters and other organizations who hosted candidate forums. Through these forums and the in-depth coverage of the candidates by The Herald-Mail, the voters of Washington County have had ample opportunity to acquire valuable information about the candidates' qualifications and beliefs on important issues facing the two boards. However, we encourage all voters to continue to follow the candidate campaigns through the media coverage until the primary election.
