Register Rising

As the end of the year approaches, there’s a lot to be excited about at the Register. We have been very proud of our coverage in the past few months. We have brought you crucial information about how the candidates see issues — the right to life, school choice, health care, torture and other key topics.

Crucial questions are on ballots across the country, and we have uniquely provided information on same-sex “marriage,” embryonic stem-cell research, assisted suicide, and more.

The times are so volatile and our mission is so crucial that I truly think this is a season of opportunity for the Register. The economic downturn will affect many people many ways, but it will only increase the need for what the Register does.

Expect a message from us soon about our annual appeal. I expect this year’s to be one of the best ever.
