Hearings offer chance to hear more on Measure 42

We applaud the decision by Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann to schedule not five, but eight, public hearings across the state for citizens to learn more about Initiative Measure 42 and Alternative Measure 42A dealing with funding for public education in Mississippi, and we encourage everyone to try to make one of the meetings so you are aware of all the issues before you vote in November. (May 20, 2015, Page 4A)

    Low voter turnout needs to improve

    Just over 18 percent of Lafayette County’s registered voters cast ballots in Tuesday’s special election for the 1st Congressional District seat. That’s better than the turnout of less than 12 percent for a similar election in 2008, but still much less than than we would like to see. We encourage all to exercise their right to vote June 2 when the polls are open again to decide a runoff between Walter H. Zinn Jr. and Trent Kelly. (May 14, 2015, Page 4)

            GOP race: Elimination sprints or marathon?

            It’s more than a year and a half away from the 2016 presidential election, and already the Republicans are hard at work trying to figure out how to settle on a candidate who will probably be taking on Hillary Clinton. Editor Don Whitten looks at ways to trim the large field, but wonders if GOP leaders will be able to manage that feat. (April 22, 2015, Page 4A)

              Term limits or not?

              There’s a chance Mississippians could vote for an initiative that would limit the number of consecutive terms someone could hold in a particular office; it would be the third time since 1995 that voters have had that opportunity. Our view is that we exercise term limits on all office-holders when we cast our ballots. (April 21, 2015, Page 4)
