No reason for commissioner positions to be political
I have yet to see any argument that convinces me the three local commission positions should be political. So why do we need a partisan election?
I’m voting yes on 1-63!
Voters avoid nonpartisan elections: No on I-63
Time is getting short to mark and return your ballots in time to have your vote counted. The nonpartisan I-63 that the Democrats put together is another attempt by them to try to control by confusion. The Oregon counties that have tried nonpartisan voting are changing back because of lacking voter interest.
Case in point was their experiment in nonpartisan politics in Los Angeles. Last week there was another in a long series of Democratic nonpartisan catastrophes. The nonpartisan voting in Los Angeles dropped down to only 15 percent of registered voters who cast their ballots to fill municipal offices. When the two parties put forth candidates who compete for a municipal office such as in this last Commissioner’s race you want and get an informed choice. If there is anything good or bad about the candidate that would make you vote either for them or against them you will know it by election time.
Don’t be fooled by all of the hype that the Democrats are putting out on this nonpartisan I-63, it is failing from the simple fact that people lose interest and don’t vote, Los Angeles and other Oregon counties are a case in point. Let’s keep our two-party system and vote this I-63 down, stand with me and vote no.
No on I-63, keep candidates’ core beliefs part of process
Many want to be elected into office, but what do we really know about them?
What are their core beliefs?
If they belong to a party at least we understand to a certain amount of degree what they stand for.
We have seen what has happened not only in our county, state and now even in our home base, Baker City, the consequence when liberal beliefs are in place vs. conservative principles.
We already have in place the ability for all individuals to vote if they want to vote in the general election, including those non-affiliated with any party. So why take away the ability to understand what they stand for and where they will lead us?
Take the time, check out what happened in other counties that implemented this.
Alaska voted yes to this and it was a disaster for them.
Maintain local control and keep core beliefs of candidates’ part of the selection process
Do not fix something that is not broken.
Vote no on Measure 1-63.
