Our organization is non-partisan though we believe it is important that we/you all are knowledgable about the positions of the various candidates seeking office. The decision you make at the ballot box will determine the quality of the government you elect.

Our plea to all citizens is to listen to the candidates who offer themselves up for election to represent you. Make your own judgment of which ones best represent your point of view on how you want them to govern on your behalf. Know that some may not be perfect but pick those that you think are the best for you. Do get out and vote.

Victor Procure, Faith Navigator,

Monsignor John Miles Assembly Knights of Columbus
