Re: “Add Democrats to U.S. House, Senate

Can anyone recommend a similar voting guide for Watauga county?

Especially one with info on judicial and board of education candidates?

Re: “Our endorsements for the 2014 general election

Just to save everyone's time in case you were wondering how "Independent" this is. Just added off the voting guide.

Democrat Endorsements = 42

Republican Endorsements = 2

Re: “Local judge, clerk and district attorney races

The individuals who make these endorsements must not go to the courthouse to witness these judges in action. For them to make those statement about Judge Evans and endorse her opponent and not do the same for Judge Gordon is pure comical to me.

Talk about voting blind!!!

Re: “County races also critical to achieving progressive ideals

Thank you for your endorsement. I would like to point out, however, that Marshall Harvey is a hardworking incumbent Soil & Water Commissioner for Wake County and he deserves re-election along with Jenna Wadsworth. Wake County voters can cast votes for two Commissioners, and Wadsworth and Harvey are the right choices to remain on the Commission.

Re: “County races also critical to achieving progressive ideals

Any explanation on the lack of a second endorsement for Wake Soil and Water??

Re: “Add Democrats to U.S. House, Senate

I wonder if Kay Hagan is any relation to Festus Hagan.......who cares if you vote for a U.S. Senator who basically doesn't give a damn about your vote let alone the issues affecting your community.

And if Thom Tillis gets his way, you'll see the resurrection of his "Jim Crow" policies that have left a brutal stain on this state. And we can blame assholes like Pat McCrory for that.

Re: “Our endorsements for the 2014 general election

Nope, just a typo/redundancy. It will be fixed in next week's issue when we run the voter guide again.

Re: “Our endorsements for the 2014 general election

Your guide has Hudson listed twice. Any reason?

Re: “Add Democrats to U.S. House, Senate

Oh, sorry, I guess I assumed everyone knew about the corruption of the Hagan family.

If you like your US Senator involved with taxpayer-funded scams, you can keep your US Senator involved with taxpayer-funded scams.

Re: “Add Democrats to U.S. House, Senate

If you vote for Kay you are as corrupt as a Hagan.

Re: “Tricia Shields

I think Tricia Shields is the best choice in this election. She would bring a great deal of experience to the position and her voice would be a valuable asset to the Court of Appeals. With so many candidates running for this seat, it is hard to know who is the real deal. Tricia Shields is the real deal -- I hope you'll consider voting for her.

Re: “Tricia Shields

Tricia Shields would make an incredible appellate court judge. She's smart, hard working and will serve as a fair and impartial jurist. She's a Women of Justice award winner and the only NC lawyer recognized in the Legal Ethics and Professional Responsibility Law category in the Best Lawyers in America. North Carolina would be well served with Tricia on the Court of Appeals. I truly hope the INDY will endorse her for this important race.

Re: “Eric Levinson

Law makers should really start working with addiction and recovery specialists when making laws on how to treat and what to do with drug offenders and addicts. Lots of these people that get caught using need help and not the type that is given jail. Experts like the ones at http://www.legacyfreedom.com/raleigh-rehab/ can help make better policy that actually address the problems and helps with the path to recovery.

Re: “How judicial elections fell prey to big money

I was volunteering as a poll greeter for the Democrats at the Wake County Board of Elections during the last judges race. There was a young black man handing out flyers for the Republican candidate for judge. I asked him about the candidate and he said he didn't know but that he and his mother were being paid to hand out flyers. Republican dollars at work!!

Re: “Libertarian Sean Haugh could swing the Hagan/Tillis election

anyone know where this guy is advertising? Is it simply on the internet? Does he have signs anywhere? What counties is he targeting?

Re: “Libertarian Sean Haugh could swing the Hagan/Tillis election

I will happily support any candidate (Green, Justice Party, or Libertarian) who will fight against the drug war, work to preserve civil liberties, and most importantly (to me) actively oppose all elective foreign interventions. Even if he can't win, I hope Sean is able to get into future debates and force Tillis (who is awful) and Hagan (slightly less awful) take stances on these issues, ideally pulling Hagan to the left.

Re: “Libertarian Sean Haugh could swing the Hagan/Tillis election

I believe that Sean told me that he's for pro-rep (proportional representation).
That's enough to get my support.
I like him.
Though I'm a Green, Sean is better than the D or R.
