Public Notice: Don't forget the local papers 2013.04.03

In case you missed the busy legal notice Saturday in the Adrian newspaper, Morenci school district residents have until Monday to register to vote—to vote on an extremely important election issue. The cash-strapped school district is in desperate need of cash to tackle maintenance issues. 

It’s a situation that needs the support of voters and we hope residents who are new to the district are aware of the deadline.

In years past, registration notices were published in the Observer, the paper most read in the school district. This year, one large advertisement in the Adrian paper grouped together all the county school districts and district libraries and no notice was published in the local paper.

This might be an example of collaboration that state officials are calling for, and perhaps it saved the city some money, but it might not be the best way to serve the public.
