Phone: 575.546.9671 l Note From The Publisher Why vote? When it comes to casting that important ballot, most people either feel obligated, or do so out of civic duty, or to sus- tain the democracy our founding fathers fought so hard for. I encourage you to feel ex- cited about having the opportu- nity to make a difference. Al- though you may have just one vote, the most important thing is that you have the RIGHT to vote! That is a privilege that deserves utmost respect. When it comes to our Hidalgo County candidates for the offices of Commissioner, As- sessor, Magistrate Judge and Sher- iff, I encourage you to vote with your hearts, your personal knowl- edge of the candidates and your gut feelings on who you KNOW will do the best job for our county. If ma r-m-e'a'm; 7"v'o rig" "t r fgtTt ..... party ticket for you, or not, then so be it. There have been a lot of nega- tive comments thrown about lately. But, the bottom line is that we KNOW all of these candidates. We work with them, attend school functions with them, see them at community events, bump into them at the grocery store, etc. You KNOW who they are, what kind of people they are. Use THAT knowledge of these candidates when you step up to cast that bal- lot. As American citizens we are blessed to have freedom of speech, but we are also blessed to be individuals who can make de- cisions based on what is best for us and our community. I strongly encourage you to not let the nega- tive influence your vote, one way or the other, and let the candidates themselves influence that vote.
