Our View: Don’t forget to vote in primary

-A A +A

Panhandle voters will help choose their next Lancaster County Council District 1 representative and the county auditor in the Republican primary Tuesday, June 14, which will determine those races, as no Democrats filed for those seats.
They will also help determine the GOP contender in the U.S. House District 5 race, who will face Democrat Fran Person in the November general election.  
Panhandle voters will choose between these hopefuls:
◆ County Council District 1 – David Freeman, Terry Graham, Melvin Stroble or J.R. Wilt
◆ County auditor – Allen Blackmon, Suzette Connell Murphy or Susan Hunter Wallace
◆ U.S. House District 5 – Ray Craig or incumbent Mick Mulvaney
Think long and hard about who you want to represent you in these offices. If you don’t know much about them, read their profiles at the end of our primary preview and read our stories from the May 26 candidates forum, which feature links to LearnTV's coverage of the forum.
And don’t forget to actually go to the polls and vote.
