It’s important that good people run for public office

It takes a lot of courage and conviction to run for public office. To put yourself out for inspection and scrutiny from the public, to hope that your message resonates with the electorate — it is a nerve-wracking experience, we’re sure.

We would like to thank all the candidates who ran for public office this cycle. Your decision to get involved, no matter how your race turns out, made a difference. Hopefully it will spur others in the future to consider such a run for office.

No matter how your race turns out Tuesday, thank you. Thank you for caring enough to run. Thank you for formulating ideas to make our county, our state and our nation a better place.

Your efforts do matter.
