I won’t touch on every race or issue, but on the ones I think are important. Let’s Go!
Re-Elect Pam Nelson for County Treasurer. To tell you the truth, I don’t even know who is running against Pam, doesn’t matter. Nelson has proved she is a strong advocate for citizens and tax payers.
Bonilla and Feinstein for County Commission. That is who I voted for, but I also don’t have an issue with Jean Bender. She has actually surprised me on commission and has been a great legal voice for the commission. Just don’t vote for Karsky. This insurance salesman has more conflicts of interest then you can shake a stick at. Time to retire Dean from local government so he has more time to dig holes at ground breaking ceremonies with the Chamber, his true love and boss.
Mike Saba and Jeff Barth for state legislature.
Yes on Amendment R. This is extremely past due. Technical schools should have had their own board 20 years ago.
No on Amendment S. Also referred to as Marsy’s Law. It is unneeded. Laws are already in place to protect victims.
Yes on Amendment T. There has been too much gerrymandering going on in our state and it is time to make the board that decides redistricting more fair.
No on Amendment U. This is a fake interest rate cap created by the payday lenders.
Yes on Amendment V. This is the most important Amendment on the ballot this year. By passing the non-partisan election amendment we will change the face of the legislature over the next 5 years, and hopefully we will have less amendments and initiatives in the future once we get better representative officials in Pierre.
NO on Ref 20. This will eliminate the youth minimum wage.
Yes on Measure 21. It will cap payday lending at 36%, and hopefully put them out of business.
Yes on Measure 22. I have said an ethics commission and publicly funded campaigns in SD is way past due.
I have no opinion on Ref 19 & 23.
I highly suggest you vote early, because the lines are going to be very, very, very long.
