The Primary Elections are tomorrow! I have had several acquaintances ask my opinions about who to vote for. I admit… I have done a TON of research into the candidates, more so than ever before. It’s amazing how involved one gets when you have a passion about making changes.
This blog post is entirely my own opinion with no outside influence; so take it or leave it. The candidate listed first is receiving my personal endorsement. I did not list any Democratic candidates except for Pete Rust who is running for Mayor in my home town of Green River.
Don’t JUST take my word on this! Please check out the website/Facebook page for each candidate! The state race PBS debates are HERE. Don’t forget to check out your candidates stance on Common Core in the survey done by Wyoming Citizens Opposing Common Core HERE.
This is NOT an all inclusive list – these are the candidates I have spent time vetting and/or know on a personal level AND can personally endorse with confidence.
Local City Races
Mayor of Green River
Ward II City Council Green River
Ward III City Council – MY WARD
Governor – We TRULY need a change here! There are two conservative candidates that are excellent choices. My focus in on education and a constitutional track record.
Superintendent of Public Instruction – This is a VITAL race! PLEASE vet your candidate closely!
Secretary of State
Ed Buchanan – is my choice as he has a proven voting record and stands strong against common core and proven record voting for conservative values.
Clark Stith – another excellent conservative choice, also taken the time to attend my common core presentations and is against top town education. However, he contributed to Matt Mead’s campaign. Serious ding on my check list.
IF FOR SOME REASON NEITHER OF THESE TWO ARE ELECTED – I WILL PUT MY VOTE TOWARDS THE INDEPENDANT CANDIDATE!
