Sidney C. Gray's proposal for candidate and voter participation in elections

There are many creative people who should become political candidates but are hesitant to participate in the political process because of the monetary costs associated with a campaign. The citizen/voter should have access to the candidates' views on the issues so that an informed, intelligent and thoughtful decision can be made as to which candidate the voter supports.

I propose the following: Each candidate for political office can present a position paper to the correct City Department for free duplication. The City will make these position papers available without cost to its citizens in our libraries, parks and recreation departments as well as any City owned facility. The City of Greensboro will provide the position papers to our private and public media outlets for insertion and distribution in their publication at no charge to the candidate.
