To the editor:
My name is Russ Brown. I will be running for public office in the upcoming Nov. 5 election for The Dalles City Council.
Although the election is several months away, this seemed a good time to remind people who are not registered to vote, to do so.
There will be a number of important positions on the ballot and likely some measures requesting money for county road and street maintenance.
Regardless of whether you own or rent your home, these measures can affect your cost of living. Registering to vote takes only a few minutes at the county clerk’s office and those few minutes can make a difference.
