There is still time to register to vote in the March 20th Village of Albion election. March 9th is the last day for new registrations.
And the residents of the Village have a real choice this year. It is up to each of them individually to consider whether the Village is moving in a positive direction as inexorably as could be expected. One party has run the “show” for a long time.
Certainly, the republican field is solid and offers experience.
The democratic candidates—Joyce Riley, Sandra Walter and Jason Dragon—are newcomers who deserve serious consideration. I know Village Trustee candidates Sandra and Jason pretty well. I do not know Joyce as well, but Bob Golden, who has a lifetime commitment to improving the local community, assures me that she is very capable. She and her family have been actively involved in helping where they can for a very long time. Together, Joyce, Sandra and Jason would bring intelligence and a fresh perspective to the many issues facing Village government.
Though I am mindful that the republican field has been trying hard for quite a while, I encourage Village voters to shake things up and vote for a new approach on March 20th. Vote democrat for a change!
