Letter to the editor: An apology for last-minute cancellation


YOUR VIEW

To the editor:

To voters in the Olentangy Local School District, we apologize. Due to last-minute cancellations by some of the candidates that had previously agreed to participate, we reluctantly decided to cancel the candidate forum scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 7.

To my knowledge, the Delaware County League of Women Voters has never cancelled a candidates night before.

One of league’s main purposes is to provide non-partisan information to the public. It is our belief that a better-informed voter is a positive for our society in general. It is our hope that those of you who planned to come received notice of this cancellation.

Also, please be aware of these other opportunities. On Oct. 22, we will hold a forum on the state issues you will see on the ballot. It will be held at the Delaware Area Career Center at 7 p.m.

We have five committed speakers who will speak to the pros and cons of each issue. You can also go to our electronic voter guide at www.vote411.org to read about all items that will appear on your ballot. Currently the state issues are there and local race information will be added soon.

Again, our apologies. We plan to be here for a long time, and will work to ensure this situation doesn’t occur in the future.

Trish Bishop

President

Delaware County League of Woman Voters
