It’s almost election time, the ballots are out. We all need to make sure we get our ballots in on time. In this election, we have only 1 partisan candidate on our ballots, and she is unopposed. Does that mean we should be complacent, absolutely not! There are candidates in some of the non-partisan races who are very partisan people. There are also issues to be considered, I hope we will consider the positions taken in our endorsements.
I would be remiss if I failed to note the pending departure of our state party chair, Dwight Pelz. Dwight has been, at times, controversial and I have sometimes found myself on the opposing side of those controversies, but he will be hard to replace. The State Central Committee would be well advised to consider carefully all of the candidates that are sure to come up.
