    Lancaster County voters have an important decision to make Tuesday, March 22, when they vote on the school bond referendum.
    Although this has been a busy election season, with the presidential primaries behind us and state and local ones ahead, this referendum has largely flown under the radar. But this vote is easily the most important one for our children, our economy and our county’s future.

    In a few weeks, voters have to make some important choices. Who will represent us in the U.S. Senate and Congress?
