Readers then can use that information as a barometer against their own thoughts about issues and candidates, as it should be.
And, in our reporting we will still present to our readers the differences between the candidates. We will still question every potential office holder and hold them accountable. And then armed with our reporting, publication of various sides of issue and individual columns, you can decide for yourself.
This year, you also will decide for yourself on constitutional amendments. Our job is to provide as much information — and opinions — from all sides that we can so you can make an intelligent choice.
In a democracy, it is the people who decide how they want to be governed — not one individual, not a party, not a movement and certainly not a newspaper.
