Please, vote May 7
All elections are important.
I’ve never understood why eligible voters do not vote.
The Preacher’s Corner
Changing order of service can be confusing
Things that happen in church are a source of endless amazement to preachers. Some of them can be told.
Down in the Mississippi Delta at a church I know, a new preacher arrived and decided right off to do something about the longstanding custom of the deacons going out during the sermon to count the collection.
Urging action to prevent tower closings
Last month, I cosponsored an amendment to prevent the Obama Administration from shutting down air traffic control towers across the country.
Sequestration requires the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to trim its budget by more than $600 million, or about 5 percent. Rather than seeking responsible cost-saving measures, the agency decided to slash funding to its Contract Tower Program – potentially putting public safety and jobs at risk.
Letter to The Editor
As we all know, the citizens of Holly Springs will be going to the poll on May 7 to vote for mayor, alderman at large and alderman for each ward within the city limits as well as for a school bond.
This election will affect the future direction and progression of our city. This election is too important for the citizens to just go in the voting booth and select any candidate. This election is also too important for us to vote as if we are voting for class personalities like we did in high school (such as most popular, most friendly, most talented or class clown). If that is the case, let it be “most likely to succeed” in moving Holly Springs forward.
Let our vote be cast for candidates who are team players; who always have the city’s best interest in the forefront; who know the needs of the citizens of Holly Springs and who can agree to disagree but still work together and represent the city in the manner in which we deserve.
So on May 7, let’s vote maturely, responsibly and conscientiously. Cast your vote based on the content of the candidates’ character and not by the color of their skin, the church they attend, the organization they’re in or the personal ties they have. Cast your vote for those candidates who are not just going to talk the talk but who will put their money where their mouth is and walk the walk. Cast your vote for those candidates who can work with and work for all citizens of Holly Springs.
