One Scrawny Prop this June

Pete StahlWelcome, voters!

There's a primary election June 7. You should vote. There's an exciting U. S. Senate race, plenty of action in the state Legislature, and no shortage of intrigue in local contests.

The statewide ballot propositions? Not so much. There's just one, and it's kind of dull. It establishes rules for suspending state legislators who misbehave. We'll have to wait until November to get to the meaty propositions.

I do urge you to read my advice on voting in our "Top Two" primaries. It's particularly important considering the 35 (yes, 35) candidates for U. S. Senate. Regardless of your political beliefs, this advice will help you vote effectively.

Happy voting,
Pete Stahl
