…or…Part DCMLVI of an ongoing series illustrating that you have two choices each election day a) right and b) left.
Legend: R = Republican endorsed or endorsee, D = Democrat endorsed or endorsee, L = Fred Mangels endorsed (our local and out
spokentypen? Libertarian). Links: GOP, HCDCC, HRWF , Fred, Richard, Eric. If you know of others, or have endorsments yourself – please leave a comment.
Some notes. I don’t think you can go wrong voting the all D ticket. Of course I am most passionate about Natalie, R, and Kim this election season. I believe we can begin to change the staid vision that business must rule both private and public spheres this election – continuing the work Chris Kerrigan and Linda Atkins have pioneered (at least in recent years).
Not on the chart, but of note:
Matthew Owen and the Times Standard have weighed in against R – telling us more about both of them than the measure.
Also, I finally found Chet Albin’s site and there seems to be some news on it. Neither Melinda Ciarabellini nor Marian Brady are on it for some reason. Hmmm.
What is clear though, there was more behind Supervisor Bass’ resignation than what she wrote in her resignation letter from the HCDCC. Virginia has put her support behind Chet, proving (again) that Matthew and Virginia’s “D” is really simply a means to an end. Just like Chet’s.
I think that the lines are so clearly drawn give this election a certain legitimacy previous elections have not had. So there is that.
Now that the lines are clear, lets get out the vote – and – if you are not happy with the two choices you have in June or November, please come volunteer with one of the two organizations that have the infrastructure to change our government – The Democrats or even the Republicans.
BTW, here is the list of Chet’s endorsers…
