Local elections are a week away...and I'm doing my homework, reading up on candidate responses to the LWV and checking out advertisements in local publications.
One candidate says all the right things to the LWV. And, I believe I will cast a vote in their direction. That's how it works, right?
Except, their ad in the newspaper lists a whole bunch of supporters with whom I am seriously uncomfortable. I mean, if they think this candidate is the best choice...I guess I better reconsider.
Listing endorsements is always a good idea to solidify the base. But, when it comes to the ever growing cohort of Independents?
It's probably more harmful than good.
Just a thought...
