Howard P. Lambert
It doesn’t help the success of your local campaign if you tell the hometown newspapers that you don’t want their endorsement. This is pretty much what Republican Adam Ochs did after ignoring emails and being contacted by phone. When asked about endorsements, he told Boulder Weekly, “In general, I find that they would be, not detrimental to the campaign, but unhelpful.” To be honest, we probably wouldn’t have voted for Ochs anyway, given the track record of legislative veteran Democrat Claire Levy, who has served on the Joint Budget Committee and has notched achievements related to solar energy, criminal sentencing reform, ballot access, transit funding and education financing. Libertarian Howard Lambert did not respond to our inquiries by press time.
