We want to offer our sincere appreciation to the candidates who took the time from their busy schedules and from the campaign trail to answer the questionnaire sent in September.Â Their insights will certainly help citizens as they consider who they would like to vote for.Â The answers we received from the candidates seeking office in LaVergne will start being posted on Friday, October 12 after the debate on Thursday. There will be one post a day until all candidates’ answers are published, and they will be published in the order they were received. Dennis Waldron did not return the survey, nor did he answer the questions on any web page that could be located.
When we start publishing the questionnaire answers, there are some ground rulesâ€¦
- Comments are open, but limited.Â We will accept relevant questions to the candidates and you can voice your support for candidates on their individual posts.Â I am grateful for the candidates who took the time to reply, so I believe we owe them respect enough to not to sully their replies.Â If you write against the candidate on these posts, the comment will be deleted.
- If you want to speak why you will not vote for someone, that is fine (what with the first amendment and allâ€¦), but only on other posts (NOT the questionnaire posts).
Early voting will begin October 17th and go through November 1st. The hours Monday – Friday are 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.Â On Saturday, October 20th, voting is from 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon.Â On Saturday, October 27th, 8:00 a.m. â€“ 4: 00 p.m. In LaVergne, you will be able to early vote at the Civic Auditorium on Old Nashville Highway.
We look forward to sharing their answers with you and, again, our warm thanks to Tom Broeker, Melisa Brown, Kathy Hines, and John Kleber for taking the time to share your views with our readers.
