Montclair City Councilman Bill Ruh reported his light-turnout experience in an e-mail to Joe Blackstock, Daily Bulletin assistant city editor.
Councilman Ruh went to his Montclair polling place at 7:30, half an hour after the polls opened, yet was the first voter to show up there.
“How sad that more people had not yet taken advantage of the privilege of voting,” Ruh noted. Electing members of the Chaffey Community College Distrist’s board was the only item on his ballot, but “… the future of education in our valley is important,” Ruh wrote. “How I wish more people would take this seriously.”
