There is way too much at stake in these elections. Locally for this city and this state we have redistricting on the horizon were new voting lines will be drawn to distinguish one district from another. What this means is that the party in political power will have a tremendous opportunity to draw the map of the political landscape for the next ten years.
For governor our state is between a rock and a hard place but the last thing we need is for someone like bill brady to come in send our schools back with extreme ideologies like creationism, and the continuing privatization of public schools. Quinn is the lesser of two evils and while the Green Party candidate whitney is fantastic we need to reform election processes before someone like him will ever have a viable chance to get elected.
Here is my ballot for today. There are many choices to make and I share mine if you need any help.
