Letter to the Editor on DeWitt County Board Primary Races


Posted February 24, 2020


Dear Editor:


Dear Editor-

And now comes the March Primary Elections for voters in DeWitt County on March 17th. Voters, this may possibly be the most important election within our county in several decades.


The reason being-the urgency to elect county board members who will assertively address issues facing us now and in our future. 1. Pro-job creation for our work force. 2. Keep property taxes affordable. 3. Maintain safety and emergency services in our county. 

I urge you to talk to the candidates. Ask them questions and voice concerns you have. Find out their stances on the issues at hand. 

The future financial security of this county hangs in limbo. When financial challenges become reality, some may choose to leave DeWitt County while others will choose to stay to protect and preserve the place that is and has been their life-long home. Help protect the future of our county by voting for Cole Ritter, David Newberg, and Jay Wickenhauser. 

Respectfully submitted,
Jane Ann Thomas
