I’m proud to be an American, no matter who resides in the White House. I have the utmost respect for anyone who has served in our military and I believe that one of the ways you show that respect is by exercising the right many have fought and died to preserve – your right to vote.

By now, you probably already know whom you want for president. But what many fail to realize is that it’s not the presidency that will most directly affect your daily life. People need to educate themselves on the races from the state level on down; local politicians directly affect how much of your money will come out of your pocket and where that money will go. They will choose what services you may need and get funding. They will be your advocate at the state and federal levels to ensure the betterment of life for all their constituents.

It is for this reason that we have resurrected the idea to interview each of the candidates from the Cabarrus County School Board races, all the way up to the U.S. Senate contest. We asked all candidates the same questions and have printed their answers – verbatim – only editing for brevity.

Unlike some of my journalistic colleagues, I don’t believe that because I buy ink by the barrel I have the right to tell you how I think you should vote. Rather, we, as a staff, agreed that we can put the information out there and allow you, our readers, to make up your own minds for whom to cast your vote. The important thing is that you do just that – no matter which side of the aisle you lean towards.

At the end of the day, we all want what’s best for our country, our state and our communities. Do your job as a citizen and vote. There’s no excuse not to.
