Who I’m voting for, and some semblance of the reason (if I’ve written about it, there’s a link), FWIW:
PSC: Chuck Eaton
PSC: Stan Wise (I) vs. Pam Davidson? Coin toss – still planning on voting for David Staples in November at this time.
Congress 11th District: It’s irrelevant that Michael Opitz is another Oxendine refugee and William Llop has run such a skeletal campaign that most think his campaign signs are advertising a CPA service. Congressman Phil Gingrey represents his constituents well and gets my vote now that he’s my Congressman. I’ve asked family members that remain in the 3rd to continue to vote for Lynn Westmoreland, who also should be re-nominated again tomorrow.
State Rep, 43rd District: Let’s see here, there’s only one name and it’s that of Rep Sharon Cooper. I guess those Peach TEA fraudsters were all bluster when they promised she would have opposition for daring to suggest the compromise on the fetal pain bill that is ultimately what it took to get the bill passed. I’m glad to vote for her, even without any opposition.
Cobb County District Attorney: The only one of the two candidates I’ve met on the campaign trail was Cindi Yeager. She gets my vote, not so much because of that, but because her youthful and…quirky campaign staffers have provided large quantities of entertainment via Facebook updates during this cycle.
Cobb Clerk of Court: Rebecca Keaton. Friends vouch for her.
Chairman, Board of Commissioners: Going to sleep on this one. Tim Lee inherited the County at a time when most shouldn’t have wanted to be a local official. Pushing a SPLOST and eventually a tax increase may not have been the best decisions, however. None of those running are likely to want to extend themselves for a “regional” solution should T-SPLOST fail, but Lee may be the best hope for that. It’ll either be Lee or Mike Boyce as a game time decision.
School Board District 5: I haven’t lived here long enough to have a clue. Soliciting input on this race only. Comment below.
Judge, Superior Court: Reuben Green. He killed the same Saturday morning I did listening to the Senate District 6 debate. That should get him something.
Judge, Superior Court: Greg Poole – friends say so.
State Court: Larry Burke - Friend says he’s done a good job with traffic court as a substitute judge.
Cobb County Sunday Alcohol Sales: Yes
Gambling “with proceeds going to education”: No. This isn’t about “real” casinos, folks.
Should Voters Have To Register By Party: No
Human Life Amendment: Nope, not going to play GRTL’s game of division
