Editorial: A thank you to local candidates

By on April 4, 2014

It was three weeks ago when we concluded our coverage of the 2014 General Election Primary, and we’d like to use this space to thank all of the local candidates who took time out to complete an Elburn Herald questionnaire.

It was a privilege to interact with candidates in the races for U.S. Senate, Kane County Clerk, Kane County Sheriff, Kane County Board District 5 and 50th District Representative, and we look forward to furthering communication with the nominated representatives in the weeks leading up to this fall’s election. It’s sure to be an exciting time for Kane County and nearby districts.

We’d also like to extend a thanks to the candidates for 16th Judicial Circuit 3rd Subcircuit, as they also took time out of their schedule to complete our questionnaire. Unfortunately, we were unable to feature their entries in the paper due to space constraints. Still, it was a pleasure to get to know the four candidates who ran for their respective Republican nomination earlier this month, and we look forward to seeing them in action in November.

Lastly, we want to thank you, the reader, for allowing the Elburn Herald to bring you comprehensive coverage of this spring’s election. Our goal was to leave no stone unturned while researching the field and gathering information from each featured candidate, and we’d like to think we succeeded in that regard. And if not, we hope to do better next time around.

After all, you deserve the best election content available. And the Elburn Herald feels honored to have an opportunity to further introduce local candidates to the Kaneland community and additional portions of Kane County.

So thank you to this March’s election candidates, and thank you to those who took time out to visit the polls and vote on March 18.
