Electorate must become educated, motivated

There is an election coming up Tuesday for two new commissioners for the city of Marquette.

There are important decisions that will need to be made in the future regarding the city.

It is important that voters pay close attention to how candidates would represent the constituents of the city, if elected.

We need to continue to work on the city of Marquette being a more business-friendly city and the commissioners we elect will have something to say about what direction we go in the future on that and many other pressing issues.

Please ask questions and become informed on what the people who are running for office think.

We have been running profiles on the candidates and issues in The Mining Journal leading up to the election to help inform voters on where the candidates stand on several issues.

We trust readers paid attention and educated themselves about candidates and issues before geting out to vote on Tuesday.
