I was reading a recent article by Jerry Cornfield about the lack of financial support for our Republican candidates. I trust his figures. Mr. C. works to be accurate. But that isn’t the whole story.
I live on Camano Island which has a large retirement community. Few of us have the money to make dollar donations to candidates, regardless how much we would like to do so. However, as I drive around my community I see many more signs supporting our Republican candidates than the Democrats. So there is support that doesn’t show on a financial spreadsheet.
I am dedicated to the Republican standards and believe that they are the best path to good citizenship for me. I am confident that our current Republican candidates for our area are knowledgeable, honorable and dedicated to giving their best service to our community.
Is my path the only path? Of course not.
It is for every good citizen to examine the candidates, contact them directly with your questions. Examine the initiatives, there is much hidden in the fine print.
Then vote your conscience. Make your best decision.
