Cheat Sheet !

     Funny thing about being an elected official and even a former elected official. Come election time, lots of your friends and acquaintances will ask your opinion on the ballot choices.

                                                     

    
     Here’s my take ( sort of) :

                                                  … United States Senator
…… your real choice here is between a far left guy, a far right guy, and a guy who will be whatever you want him to be! ….some think Meeks will drop out and Crist will have a shot…I say no way that will happen….

     I’m not offering an opinion on this race, but one thing I am sure of … you should steer clear of this fringe U.S. Senate candidate pictured below.

                                                          
                                           U.S. Senate candidate Bobbie Bean

     Bean’s running on a kind of “fear the Muslims” platform, and says it’s reasonable to think that Christians will soon have to hide in the closet to read the bible.

                                                              …….. Governor
……….between the Democrat Alex Sink and the Republican Rick Scott.

     Scott totally lost me when he had his mother attend one of the debates for him because “everybody was picking on him”  …..  Vote Sink

                                                         Attorney General

…… not a lot of pizazz in this race, a Dem and a Repub, but third party candidate and hometown boy Jim Lewis is running for it…. Of course Jim’s run for about every elected position possible!
 
                                                              
                                                                    don’t vote Jim – again

                                                                Supreme Court Justices

……….  the ballot asks us ” if we’d like to retain them”  …. what kind of choice is that? ..I said NO
