<![CDATA[Boulder - Weekly - Vote 2012]]> <![CDATA[County Commissioner District 1: Elise Jones (D)]]> Shane, Shane. How little we knew ye.]]> <![CDATA[City of Louisville City Council Person Ward 1: Emily Jasiak (I)]]> She may be the only choice, but based on her passion for Louisville, and her big plans, she sounds like a strong choice for the town.]]> <![CDATA[President: Barack Obama and Joe Biden (D)]]> Because Romney is so wrong, we are supporting Barack Obama, who we believe is a far better choice for president than the former governor.]]> <![CDATA[Colorado state representative District 13: Claire Levy (D)]]> To be honest, we probably wouldn’t have voted for Ochs anyway, given the track record of legislative veteran Democrat Claire Levy.]]> <![CDATA[District I Regional Transportation District Director: Judy Lubow]]> Judy Lubow is the candidate best suited for this work, and her years as a government attorney and, subsequently, as an activist, convince us that she is suited for the red-tape-heavy job of managing RTD.]]> <![CDATA[Colorado Constitutional Amendment S: Vote Yes]]> <![CDATA[Colorado state representative District 33: Dianne Primavera (D)]]> Broomfield resident Dianne Primavera, the Democratic candidate, seems to have a bit more experience, having served as a state legislator in this seat before.]]> <![CDATA[Court of Appeals: Retain Judge Gale T. Miller]]> Judge Gale T. Miller, whose background is in “complex civil litigation,” admits his faults.]]> <![CDATA[Colorado state representative District 11: Jonathan Singer (D)]]> We actually like many of the individuals who donated to Singer, so while it’s a tough call, we’ll give him the slight lean.]]> <![CDATA[St. Vrain Valley School District RE-1J Ballot Issue 3A: Yes on Mill Levy Override]]> <![CDATA[20th Judicial District: Retain Judge D.D. Mallard]]> We aren’t sure how she does it, but Judge Dolores “D.D.” Mallard manages both the qualities necessary for a good judge: She’s “compassionate” and “neutral,” the Colorado Office of Judicial Performance Evaluation says.]]> <![CDATA[City of Boulder Ballot Issue 2A: Yes on Climate Action Plan Tax Extension]]> <![CDATA[City of Louisville Ballot Issue 2A: Yes on Open Space Tax Extension]]> <![CDATA[Colorado state representative District 12: Mike Foote (D)]]> As tempted as we are to vote for Webber, we have to give the endorsement to Foote on this one.]]> <![CDATA[U.S. Representative District 4: Brandon Shaffer (D)]]> After two years of stalemate in Congress, Brandon Shaffer, Democratic candidate for District 4, should snag the seat simply because he and incumbent District 2 Rep. Jared Polis share enough in common that the two might be able to build some momentum, at least for the state of Colorado.]]> <![CDATA[Court of Appeals: Retain Judge James S. Casebolt]]> We endorse retention for Judge Casebolt, who’s described as fair and open-minded.]]> <![CDATA[Colorado state Senate District 17: Matt Jones (D)]]> While we see the wisdom in that belief, Plagainos’ permissive views on fracking and his lack of experience in politics trump his good intentions. We think Jones is the best choice for District 17.]]> <![CDATA[City of Lafayette Ballot Question 2B: Yes to Growth Management Changes]]> <![CDATA[City of Boulder Ballot Question 2D: No to City Leases up to 30 Years]]> <![CDATA[Court of Appeals: Retain Judge John R. Webb]]> Finally, an appellate judge we can relate to. We at the Boulder Weekly are happy to see a writer in black robes.]]>
