In Oct. 21 Issue
Only a few days left before voters will go to the polls and elect leaders for the upcoming years.
This year, more than ever before, voters should make certain they express their opinions by placing their votes.
A large change is expected nationwide as the economy remains the number one issue and change appears to be the number one objective.
Nationwide, career politicians appear to be in serious problems. Republican or Democrat, most voters are calling for less and less government.
Locally, voters this past primary voted change for top leadership when they denied the county judge executive re-election.
Russell County must have dedicated leadership for these coming years. Jamestown, Russell Springs and Russell County are going to face many tough challenges in the years to come. Several jobs have been lost here in the area and we expect we will see more diminish before a turn around is felt on the local level.
Leadership is so much more important that just meeting once a month and passing a motion to pay the bills,
Our leadership had better be prepared to be innovative and creative, and dedicated. It is going to take new ideas and total commitment to pull Russell County from this declining economy. With the reduction of local jobs, the loss of thousands in property values, we must expect some adjustments.
While this is our leadership responsibility it is our responsibility to make sure we get out and vote and make sure our vote is directed to elect the most qualified leadership.
