During these times of stife, we would like to remind elected officials in Hays County that they are much more than welcome to communicate their hopes, their dreams, their fears and pleas to the local electorate on our pages. Many have already done so and will continue to, but we’re just tossing out this reminder.
Just write something up and we’ll post it as a blog, guest column, commentary or whatever seems most suitable. We won’t edit, except for publication style. Of course, that doesn’t mean we won’t respond, and the general public reading these pages certainly will.
Government of the people requires that elected officials keep the voters and citizens in touch with the reasons for why they do what they do. If we’re here for nothing else, it’s to stimulate an elevated discussion of public affairs in San Marcos and around the county.
… We’d also like to note that the office at Newstreamz is a different place today without Sean Wardwell, who finished up here last Thursday to take a newspaper job in McPherson, KS, to be closer to his family.
Sean helped keep the pieces here together during a couple difficult transitions, not the least of which occurred when yours truly arrived at the start of January. Being so deeply committed to democracy, we know Sean will do his best up in McPherson to shed light on the public process. We all wish Sean the best.Email | Print
