Editorial: It’s that time of year once again

By on March 6, 2014

Believe it or not, it’s actually early March right now. And we can confirm as much in this week’s issue of the Elburn Herald, as it features the first part of our coverage regarding the spring General Primary Election. Of course, this is a spring election season in name only. We still have icicles on our vehicles, and we’re certainly not fans of Punxsutawney Phil right about now. Maybe we’ll eventually refer to this time of year as “Polar Vortex election season.”

This week’s Elburn Herald issue will give you a closer look at the Republican nomination candidates for Kane County Sheriff, 50th District Representative and the County Board District 5 seat. We had a great time working with said candidates to create the content found in this week’s election section, and we hope you’ll have just as good of a time learning more about them.

We’re also featuring a closer look at the three referenda available this spring: the “Show You Care Kane” public question; the county’s authority to arrange for the supply of electricity for its residential and small commercial retail customers who have not opted out of such program; and a proposition to increase the Sugar Grove Public Library’s limiting rate. You can find out more about all three ballot items in this week’s issue of the Elburn Herald.

As always, we seek to bring you the best election coverage possible, and we’re honored to bring you more information about the candidates you’ll find on the ballot this March. It might not feel like spring election season right now, but we’re less than two weeks away from voting day. So allow us to introduce you to the players in Kane County’s contested races later this month. And don’t forget to vote on Tuesday, March 18.
