OPINION: The Woodlands MUD elections endorsements

There is a lot at stake for The Woodlands in our Municipal Utility District (MUD) Directors elections, so it is important to get out and vote. Water is our most precious resource, and the MUDs play a key role in the management of our drinking water and wastewater. If The Woodlands is to remain the number one "city" in America to live, we should strive to maintain quality cost-efficient water services as our community's water infrastructure ages. Do we want to go the direction of Flint, Michigan?

Early voting is currently underway and occurs from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. through Saturday, April 27 and from 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. on Monday, April 29 and Tuesday, April 30. During the early voting period any qualified Montgomery County registered voter may vote at any one of the Montgomery County early voting locations.

You may also vote on Election Day, May 4, from 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. at your precinct voting location. Check your water bill or the Montgomery County elections page for your MUD and precinct.
