ELECTION 2012: My Endorsements for Minneapolis and St. Paul

October 17th, 2012 (09:59 pm)

I did all the research: now you can just follow my bidding and vote like I will (or would).
 
National and Statewide Races
President: Barack Obama
U.S. Senator: Amy Klobuchar
(Anti-)Marriage Amendment: No
Photo ID Amendment: No 
 
U.S. House for Minneapolis and St. Paul
U.S. Representative, District 5: Keith Ellison
U.S. Representative, District 4: Betty McCollum
 
State Legislative Races
MN State Senate, District 63: Patricia Torres-Ray
MN State House, District 63A: Jim Davnie
MN State Senate, District 64: Dick Cohen
MN State House, District 64B: Michael Paymar
 
Soil and Water Conservation District, Ramsey County
Soil and Water Supervisor District 2: Gwen Willems
Soil and Water Supervisor District 5: Matt Ledvina
 
Chief Justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court
Lorie Skjerven Gildea
 
All the Other Judicial Races
ASSOCIATE JUSTICE 1: Barry Anderson
ASSOCIATE JUSTICE 4: David R. Stras

Minneapolis only:
4TH DISTRICT COURT -- JUDGE 22: Elizabeth V. Cutter
4TH DISTRICT COURT -- JUDGE 44: Lois Conroy
 
Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisors, Hennepin County
SOIL AND WATER CONSERVATION DISTRICT SUPERVISOR DISTRICT 1: Eleonore Wesserle
SOIL AND WATER CONSERVATION DISTRICT SUPERVISOR DISTRICT 3: Brian T. Peterson
SOIL AND WATER CONSERVATION DISTRICT SUPERVISOR DISTRICT 4: Richard B. Strong
...but it totally doesn't matter who you vote for, this board has more turnover than a pancake house.
 
Minneapolis School Board, St. Paul School Levy
Minneapolis School Board: Carla Bates
St. Paul School Levy: Yes

You can click the links for my full rationale, or just take me at my word and print off this post for quick reference when you go to the polls! (Although if you live anywhere other than 63A or 64B, you will still have some races to check on). DON'T FORGET TO VOTE ON NOVEMBER 6TH.

Thank you once again. This is very helpful and cuts down on the amount of googling I need to do!

Just dropping by, arrived here by a Google search for conservation district supervisors and/or judicial offices. Thanks for providing these citations, they were quite useful while doing research, especially with respect to Gildea vs. Griffith.
