2020 Personal Candidate Recommendations

Been getting LOTS of emails from readers who have no idea who to vote for in some races for the June 9 primary.  I feel your pain.  In the same boat.  Especially when it comes to judicial races.

And with that in mind, my first recommendation is: Don’t mail in your ballot yet!

The deadline is midnight, June 9.  So there’s no rush.  And a number of candidates are just now starting to send out their campaign mailers.

But for those who just can’t wait to get it over with, the following are some initial personal recommendations I’ve come up with so far.  More will be added as I complete more research.

Please note, these are SUBJECT TO CHANGE at any time between now and June 9 as new information comes in.
