A few years ago, the Village of Edmore Police Department created a Facebook page to help promote a seminar we were hosting at Montabella High School. We quickly found that this page served as an excellent tool in getting information to the masses quickly and efficiently.
The seats for Michigan’s 3rd and 4th districts are both being contested in Tuesday’s general election.

The 33rd District state Senate seat and the 70th and 86th District state House seats are all being contested in the upcoming general election.
The Edmore Village Council election is the most contested race of any in Montcalm County, and one of the most important.
Voters in Eureka Township and Howard City will be asked in the general election to elect someone to lead their municipality.
Montcalm County voters will be asked to approve a millage renewal proposal in the upcoming general election, while Ionia County voters will be asked to approve a 911 surcharge increase. We encourage voters to say yes to both worthy proposals.
Recently, I shared in this column some of the results of the Phi Delta Kappan/ Gallup Poll on the attitude of the public toward the Public Schools. Since that column was published, I have received the September issue of Phi Delta Kappan magazine which includes more detailed discussion about what we can learn from the poll.
Another primary election, another dismal turnout. Tuesday brought just 15.5 of registered voters to the polls in Ionia County and 15 percent in Montcalm County.
