As summer is now in full swing, the residents of our fair parish are busy with the activities that the season brings.

There’s a lot going on in our parish during this time of year, so much so, that sometimes we tend to forget to voice our opinions.

We at the Gonzales Weekly Citizen take your issues and concerns seriously, and we want to hear what you, the residents of Ascension Parish, have to say about things.

Sometimes that may be to highlight the achievements of someone we know.?Sometimes that may be to pass an opinion on about a meeting or event. Whatever you have to say, we want to hear it, and you have a right to be heard.

So as you sit aside a pool this season, curl up with a good book, or even spend some down time alone, think of how important this community is to each of us, and how through our opinions, we can all strive toward making it the best it can possibly be.

Please send in your comments to editor@weeklycitizen.com, or mail them to 231 W. Cornerview,?Gonzales, LA 70737.
Only letters with a name attached will be published.

Enjoy your summer, and start speaking up.
