Editor, Times-Union:
As primary election day draws near, you are encouraged to exercise your right to vote. In preparing to do so, please familiarize yourself with the qualifications of each candidate and determine if that particular candidate is fully prepared to assume the office they are seeking.
Please do not cast a ballot simply because you recognize the name as being familiar to the community or you happen to be familiar with the family.
All positions open for election in this primary are important and deserve to have the best qualified candidate fill that position.
