Ballots are in the mail. This is what mine will say…September 25, 2020
If you’ve requested a mail-in ballot, then you will likely get it in the next two weeks. Once it arrives, please vote as soon as possible, and you can return it by mail or at one of the drop boxes set up around the County. You can find the locations in the links below.
Like always, I want to provide you with my endorsements for the coming elections.
President and Vice President of the United States
U.S. Congress – District 6
Judges for the Circuit Court (four choices)
Board of Education, At Large
Board of Education, District 2
Board of Education, District 4
There are six ballot questions for you to consider – 2 Statewide and 4 County. Here are my recommendations.
State Question 1: YES. Allows for flexibility in the budget approval process, by letting the Legislature move resources around in order to meet the priorities of the State. It also grants the Governor a line item veto for any such changes. Maintains the requirement for a balance budget every year.
State Question 2: YES. Authorizes sports betting in the State which will add additional revenue to education.
County Question A: YES. Allows the County to assess property taxes in a more reasonable way while maintaining the current unanimous requirements for exceeding the charter limits.
County Question B: NO. This question would handcuff the county and force cuts to education, public safety, and other critical services.
County Question C: YES. Would increase the number of County Councilmembers to 11 by adding an additional two districts, and maintaining the At-Large seats.
County Question D: NO. Would eliminate At-Large seats and take representation away from County residents by forcing each voter into a smaller district.
