Election Day is TODAY and it is important to stress the importance of Cheshire voters going to their polling sites and cast their vote.
The Cheshire Democratic Town Committee urges everyone in town to exercise your right to vote and participate in this important local election.
More than ever the upcoming election will affect Cheshire’s immediate future with an impact on many issues including economic development, education and the town budget. Your vote will help decide and mold what kind of town we reside in and what kind of town our children will reside in. You can be sure the 2017 Cheshire local election will impact our town for many years to come.
There are nearly 5,000 registered Democrat voters in Cheshire but the CDTC urges every registered citizen aged 18 to 118 (or older) to vote.
While voting party lines is a determining factor for many voters when casting their vote, realistically all voters - Democrats, Republicans, Unaffiliateds - should always be as informed as possible before casting that vote.
I urge you to research each and every Democratic candidate running for Town Council, Board of Education, Planning and Zoning and all other positions and you will be impressed with their vitality and strength of arguments on every issue. In addition to items like economic development and education, very high on the list of all Democrats is the importance of fiscal responsibility.
Each Cheshire Democratic candidate has a strong background. Read their bios and connect with them at www.Cheshiredem.org and Facebook at www.facebook.com/cheshirectdemocrats .
Cheshire, make a difference and vote this year. Your Voice, Your Vote, Your Future.
