The Washington County Observer will continue its tradition of keeping south Washington County residents informed about the local political scene by sponsoring a booth at this year’s annual West Fest event.
The booth will be made available to candidates and ballot issues at the state, county and municipal level. There is no charge for individuals or groups to display literature, pamphlets and flyers.
The Observer will display a West Fork ward map along with copies of two upcoming ballot initiatives. One to dissolve the Water Commission and bring it into city elective control and the other to establish Ward Elections in West Fork which would provide that aldermen are elected by the people living in their ward rather than the current city-wide aldermen elections.
Copies of the ordinances for both issues will be available for citizen review.
West Fest is September 13-14. Come have some fun and stop by our booth.
Here are some photos of past West Fests:
