Dear Editor:

The future of School District 428 of DeKalb, Cortland and Malta will be discussed in depth at a Town Hall meeting, Monday Jan. 7th at 7pm at the Egyptian Theatre in downtown DeKalb. The future of this school district will play a major role in the future of the communities mentioned.

I want to thank the DeKalb Chamber of Commerce for sponsoring this meeting and the Egyptian Theatre for hosting it. I also want to thank the 428 administration and the ReNew Our Schools committee for providing a question and answer session that will last until all who wish to comment can do so.

There appears to be two “choirs” to this referendum issue. Those who will vote yes and those who will vote no. I am sure both will be in attendance Monday night. I’m hoping and encouraging those not in either choir (the silent majority) to attend, listen and participate in this important meeting.

So, bring a snack, your family and friends and spend some quality time with the community. An informed vote is always the right vote.

Reminder: Tuesday Jan. 8th is the last day to register to vote in the Feb. 4th elections.

Mac McIntyre
