But Don’t Tar Everybody, Especially When Independence Is the Message
However one feels about specific, statewide campaigns, it’s worth remembering that candidates (especially those running as Republicans) are individuals worthy of assessment on their own merits. It remains critical to bring new faces and political balance to the General Assembly, especially in light of the proven union influence on policy, there. The Clean Slate Web site has been updated, with a by-district listing of candidates in your area, some with their own Web sites.
It’s also worth remembering that the Clean Slate program is available to independent candidates, as well as Republicans. Those not already on the list should consider contacting the initiative’s director, Mike Stenhouse (email).
