The June 8 election will demand of voters some key decisions. Our Weekly has weighed the pros and cons, and offers the following recommendations. If we do not support a candidate for a contest, it is because we feel there is no one person who distinguishes themselves from the others.

In the all-important judge races, we will offer additional information on our web site on June 5. Additionally, if you want to get more information on the statewide ballot propositions, look at the May 20 editions of Our Weekly. This can be viewed online at
