I have been impressed in the past couple days of the privilege it is to vote. Men & women of our armed forces have fought and died for our privilege to vote. Because we have become somewhat complacent in our political endeavors or perhaps we have just become sick of the way politics are running, we don’t exercise this tremendous honor of voting. No matter what your position may be, our right to vote should not be neglected. It is one of the basic reasons our country is so great. I encourage you to exercise this honor and go to your local polling place on Tuesday or vote early at your county office. I am reposting an article I wrote earlier this month on the candidates. I’ve also found two more resources for Republican voters to get information on the candidates. The Voter Information site may have information on judges which is very hard to find!!
Please go and enjoy this honor of VOTING!!!
I got asked the other day if there was anyone of importance running this off season election. Actually it happened twice in one week. Because we are in a remote area and all have dish tv or direct, we don’t get much local news. So I thought I would compile a few people and their web sites that I know we will be seeing on the ballot this November 2nd. This applies to Nebraska and mostly to the western half of Nebraska.
This is a link at the Secretary of State site of all elelctions across the state. Doesn’t list the county elelctions. http://www.sos.ne.gov/elec/2010/pdf/general%20election%20list.pdf
1. Governor Dave Heineman – yep there is an on-going governors’ race but we don’t hear much about it. Governor Heineman
2. Representative Adrian Smith – there will be three candidates on the ticket. The democrat running is a very very lift wing liberal, very bad for Nebraska. There is an independent on the ticket who petitioned to be on the ballot, Dan Hill. He has been a life long republican. My concern is splitting the republican vote which could allow the democrat a win. Here are Adrian’s & Dan’s web sites. Adrian Smith Dan Hill
3. Secretary of State John Gale – http://www.facebook.com/pages/John-Gale/86779768800
4. State Treasurer Don Stenburg – http://ontheissues.org/Senate/Don_Stenberg.htm
5. State Attorney General Jon Bruning – http://jonbruning.com/index.php?PID=1&TYPE=HOME
6. State Auditor Mike Foley – http://www.auditors.state.ne.us/
7. State Board of Education – Cindi Allen – This is one those of little known about positions that has such a large impact on state education. Cindi is a Republican, Conservative, LEAD Alum that we are backing. She is doing a great job but is not endorsed by the union, (which in our opinion is good) She will be representing 35 counties across the western part of our state. Cindi Allen If you know of people or friends in the east part of the state (North Omaha-Spencer) John Sieler John Sieler
