Editorial: Elections

The following is an editorial from FOX6 WBRC-TV General Manager Lou Kirchen, first aired on Tuesday, August 18, 2009.

Another chance...that's what we get with each new election.

The citizens of Birmingham and Tuscaloosa have another chance for change, or not...with the upcoming elections for Birmingham City Council and School Board and Tuscaloosa City Council.  The opportunity and the responsibility is yours.

Be informed.  Know your candidates...where they stand on the issues that are important to you and your family.  There is new blood...and old,  among the candidates...a chance for new beginnings, if that's what you want.

We are not endorsing any candidate, but if you want to know more, please visit our website, myfoxal.com. , where we have the profiles of those candidates who responded to our request for information.

So...are you going to vote... and will it be for new blood or the status quo?  Let us know.
