To the editor:
More than just a building…
There have been many letters to the editor explaining all the reasons to support the YMCA project. Some of the benefits are the Event Center and the partnerships with GISD, PJC and the hospital. These are all good, but I believe there is another important reason that has not been mentioned.
The Y does not turn anyone away. This financial assistance helps put boys and girls in sports programs that allow for mentoring and encouraging from Y staff and coaches. I am glad to contribute my tax dollars to help others. Two dollars per month helps provide a larger facility that will be able to help even more children. For the cost of a large coffee, I can invest in future generations.
Families and adults will benefit, too. The Hope Center, relocated to the new Y, will provide more job training. This will not just impact families but our entire community. It is exciting to think about all the families that can be helped with a small contribution.
Proposition 2 is a great opportunity for us to provide a facility that benefits every single citizen. The election on May 11 is not just a vote to build a facility; it is also about helping others.

Letter from Judge Steve Tittle
Editor's note: Because we ran letters to the editor regarding the upcoming March 4 elections longer than usual, the Herald-Banner extended an opportunity to both Judge Steve Tittle and Judge Andrew Bench to write a final rebuttal letter. Bench's letter can be found in today's print edition. Tittle's letter is below:
To the editor: Today is election day, and I encourage all Hunt County voters to vote. Make no mistake, there is an important option you have today regarding who will continue serving as your District Judge for the 196th Judicial District Court.
