Local officials have their elections this year as well, such as Supervisors, School Board, and Treasurer. In Cumberland County, there are positions that are uncontested, even School Board Districts 3 and 4 – without candidates at all.
This year the Cumberland NAACP forum is in the Cumberland Elementary Cafeteria.
The program starts at 4 PM Sunday, October 9, 2011. All candidates have been invited.
Interest level for politics in this community has historically low. However, there was an $.18 tax increase last year. Not many positive comments that I know of with that situation. Hopefully residents start paying more attention to their governments.
