Great service to voters

As relatively new residents to Birmingham, my husband and I wish to applaud you for the invaluable Voters Guide printed in the July edition. You have provided an extraordinarily great service to Birmingham voters, and, after reading all 34 pages closely, we feel well prepared to vote in the upcoming August Primary.

Most of us are inundated with a great deal of election material from the individuals seeking our votes, but no single brochure can possibly provide the in depth information contained in Downtown’s detailed pages of serious questions and answers. We sincerely thank each staff and community member, and every candidate who took the time to participate in compiling such a valuable tool.

Finally, as a former political leader myself, I was always skeptical of so called “litmus tests,” but your marker took courage and I commend you for taking an unmistakable stand.
