Bravo to candidates for sharing views

The Jamestown Sun hands out these bravos this week:

*Bravo to Stacy Schaffer, who received the University of Mary Bell Banner Award. The award honors alumni for "modeling the values of respect, hospitality, moderation, service, community and prayer." Schaffer, who grew up in Wishek, is the founder of the 31:8 Project, a nonprofit that provides education on human trafficking. She works with organizations including the North Dakota Attorney General's Human Trafficking Commission and North Dakota Human Trafficking Task Force.

*Bravo to local candidates for office for providing answers to written questions to assist voters in making their choices for the Nov. 6 election. Candidates for Stutsman County Commission, Stutsman County sheriff and District 29 Senate and House provided written answers to questions posted by The Sun that were published this week in its "On the Issues" series. And bravo to people who take the time to vote.

*Bravo to the Pride of Dakota Harvest Showcase returning to Jamestown. The event drew more than 1,900 shoppers to check out the 89 booths of products and services. It's great to see a large event such as this come to smaller communities, and we hope it returns for the third time next year.
