Candidate Filing Ends With 338 Candidates on the Ballot

Candidate filing ended yesterday with 338 men and women tossing their hats in the ring to run for office.

We’ve been over at the Capitol for the past week, and what a week it’s been! Between conducting interviews with candidates, asking them to fill out a survey for our upcoming voters guide, and keeping up with all the other projects we’re working on, it’s been a busy time for me and my staff.

I do want to take a moment, however, to mention once again how critical the elections in May and November will be.


Dogs Chasing a Car

Ever see a dog chase a car? Ever wonder what he would do if he caught it? I saw that Shaggy Dog movie when I was a kid. Everyone knows in real life dogs don’t drive, but they love to chase cars. That’s what our political friends remind me of. Democrats and Republicans, both look about the same to me these days. One party chases the car down the right side of the road and the other down the left, and the ones running down the middle usually end up as road kill.
