Thanks to The Ottawa Herald for publishing the voting records of state Sen. Caryn Tyson and state Reps. Blaine Finch and Kevin Jones in Tuesday’s newspaper.

It is critical to our civil responsibility to educate ourselves as voters. Vern Chesbro would have been very pleased with the article. He and I have shared the view that voter education is a fundamental duty of journalism.

It is even more important as our governments on the state and national levels address critical issues of taxation and growth with a sometimes drastic set of changes.
