Be a responsible citizen

Voters in Saline and Milan will get an opportunity tonight in Saline and Wednesday in Milan to learn more about their future school leaders, and I hope they take advantage of it.

The Saline Reporter is hosting a Meet the Candidates' Night 7 p.m. at Saline Middle School. Reporter Sue G. Collins will moderate. The editorial staff at The Reporter has formulated some questions and has received a few from the community. Milan's event will be hosted by the school district and is set for 7 p.m. at the high school's performing arts center. We hope the turnout at both will be good, although often it's not because parents are so busy with their children's activities, work and other commitments.

I plan to video both events, so voters who are unable to make it can see the candidates and listen to their responses to issues affecting the school district. I believe the local cable TV video crew will be there, as well. Combined with our candidate profiles in today's Saline Reporter and Milan News-Leader, I hope the coverage will help voters make an informed decision.

I urge area residents to be responsible citizens. Take advantage of these opportunities and cast an informed vote May 6. Remember, you have a say in this election and an important role in setting the direction for the school district's future.
