After the governor took the stage, his opponent responded, driving home lots of good points … perhaps not very persuasively
I would agree that even those who never cross parties should still have to mark a box in every race.
If we cannot get rid of non-partisan voting for governor, we should at least get rid of "straight party voting." That is an antiquated and lazy way to vote. You are voting for a party in all offices and not for an individual running for that office. It dumbs down the voting process. Luceen Dunn
60K votes out of 300K voters...that is roughly 20% of the people that could vote, and the majority of the 80% that did not vote will be the one's scream about if he/she did or did not do a good job....The same through out the entire USA...bout 20% decide who is going to represent us and guide us through our lives...
Unfortunately Joy does not have the courage to use words like you just did. She is a very average speaker as well. If she can convey empathy with a broad swath of the electorate and constantly attack Still’s action and inaction she might have a chance. At present her campaign is not going to ignite fire under voters who might vote for a Holt-type candidate.
You not only hit the nail(s) on the head, you have suggested a level of conversation we should all be having, as candidates and as voters. I'm sharing this. Hope many, many others will also.
