Letter To The Editor: Walk Your Rec Ballot In Today Or Tomorrow ... And Please Vote Yes!

on May 22, 2017 - 11:42am

Los Alamos

You can still vote on the Rec Bond if you walk your ballot in today or tomorrow. I am voting yes and i hope you do, too.

You can turn your ballot in, in person at this point, at the Municipal Building at 10th & Central, on the 2nd floor, in the County Clerk’s Office. It has to be in the Clerk’s Office before 7 p.m. tomorrow, Tuesday.

My apologize to Nancy Shick (link) for my poor spelling. Spelling never was a strong point of mine. Thank the Good Lord for spell check, which unfortunately failed me in that letter as it didn't distinguish between Britain the Country and Briton a citizen of Britain.
 
As for history, please look at "archives.gov" and Google "the Canada Act", "Louisiana Purchase", "Continental Congress" and educate yourself. No apology from you is expected or needed.
