On October 27, Ontario municipalities will be having elections for local councils and school board representatives. Every four years, eligible Ontarians will have the opportunity to make their voice known on local issues that matter to them. Tonight and Thursday night, the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce will be hosted 'Meet the Candidates' nights. Tonight will be Ward candidates and Thursday will be mayoral and regional councillor candidates. I plan to be there to listen to the candidate platforms. For those of us who support public libraries, it is important to be seen at these events and, perhaps, to pose a question or two about library service. In Lincoln, our voice was finally heard, and we have a beautiful new facility in Beamsville. Now, if we could get some extra funding for staff for the increased usage! Where ever you are in Ontario, make your voice heard. Vote!
