Letter to the editor: All candidates should get Q&A
It was with great anticipation that I sat down this morning to read through the Q&A of candidates vying for a seat on the ACSD board, only to be disappointed that all candidates were not questioned. While it was explained that only the candidates in contested races had their views presented, I have to wonder what that says about the Addison Independent’s view of voters. Just because a candidate is running unopposed, please don’t suppose that voters are not interested in what they have to say on the issues. Ms. Romp, and indeed the entire ACSD community, was done a disservice by leaving her views out of the Q&A.
