More Sun Endorsements
Posted by David Keelan on Tuesday, October 24, 2006
The Sun came out with it’s legislative endorsements.
Not a lot of surprises here.
I adamantly disagree with the endorsement of Jim Robey over Sandy Schrader. He should pay the consequences of distorting her record on women’s rights. I don’t agree with either of them, but he knows that is an issue she is strong on and he goes after her because HE believes our 15 year old daughters should be buying birth-control medications over the counter. So what does he do? He distorts her record. Funny a pro-choice candidate beating on another pro-choice candidate for being pro-choice.
Mr. Robey denys any knowledge of the smear tactic.
“I didn’t know anything about it,” Robey said, adding that he first saw the mailings Monday when a reporter showed them to him
I was pleased that Mary Beth Tung was endorsed over Guy Guzzone.
Have you noticed that the Sun has not endorsed any of the sitting democratic member of the County Council?
Dave OZ Osmundson over Warren Miller. I blogged on the candidate forum for 9A. You can read it for yourself. I am not voting for Dave over Warren despite The Sun :=) Just read the candidate forum.
Rich Corkran for Senate. Hmmm. I don’t think so. Allan Kittleman has been responsive and responsible. He has a long record of public service and he really is one of the best people you will ever meet. He really is a pleasure to know.
In reality I feel bad for Rich because Jim Robey left him holding the bag (pardon the pun). Robey conducted a poll last year gauging his chances to win in this election. The end result. He moved to district 13 and has been deflecting the criticism ever since. He claims he planned to move the whole time. I wonder why he conducted the poll? I was part of that poll and I do not recall any questions about Sandy Schrader. Hmmm.
Rick and Loretta, keep up the good work. See you in Annapolis.
