Letter: Benson, Let me tell you who to vote for
Letter to the Editor, Let me tell you who to vote for,
This is Norm Benson from Fraser. The Primary elections are upon us and I have a few thoughts about certain candidates. It is no secret that I vote Republican. The County Commissioner race is the race that will have the most direct effect on the readers of this letter. I am not going to favor either Republican Rich Cimino or Chas McConnell because I believe either one will be a good Commissioner. I sort of wish I could vote in the Democrat primary where I would vote for Jane Tollet. I believe that she is more even handed than Andy Miller. I am just going to leave it that I have known Andy too long and I know where he is coming from. I will ask voters to vote for Merrit Linke. He is the longest tenured Commisioner at only four years, and I think that counts for a lot. He has been in Grand County for a long time, and I believe that there has to be some continuity in the Commisioners office. He solidly backs the Veterans Affairs office. When it comes to the Senate candidates, unfortunately I don’t know much about any of them except sound bites or the internet. I have known of Ryan Frasier and I think he is a good candidate. If memory serves he ran against DeGette for Representative from Denver. I am voting for Darrel Glenn. None of the Republicans would be a bad choice and far preferable to Michael Bennet who is the hand picked democrat “YES” boy for Obama and Hickenlooper.
If the democrats get the State Senate, Colorado will go the way of California and become unlivable politically! I actually don’t know if there is a race for State Representative. I realize that is my failing, but since we are in the Soviet Socialist Republic of Boulder’s district it doesn’t really matter! They will manufacture enough votes to win! Vote no on all ballot measures!
