This week, The Marietta Times will begin publishing its endorsements of candidates. You may have noticed we've already run editorials against the casino issue in Ohio and in support of the local mental health levy for children. In the days leading up to the Nov. 4 election we will run endorsements for individual candidates at the local, state and national levels.
Our editorial board voices our opinions every day on issues important to this community. The endorsements are simply an extension of that.
Our opinions are strictly that, opinions, but we hope they also help to inform and motivate our readers by provoking thought and sparking discussion.
In many cases we've had the opportunity to sit down with candidates one-on-one. We've sorted through the information and we've discussed the candidates' strengths and weaknesses. We hope you'll consider the information provided in the endorsements prior to making your own decisions on Election Day.
Many readers already are expressing their opinions and their own endorsements through letters to the editor. We love the interaction among readers and we ask for your patience. In the week to come we will make sure all election letters that come in by the deadline - 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 27 - get published by the election.
One last note. If you haven't already done so, please make sure to exercise your right to vote!
