At this time, we are in a political season. Many campaigns are gearing up for the August and November elections. If you are a registered voter than you have probably have been receiving a lot of political advertisements in your mailbox.
There is no way to stop receiving these marketing material unless you act. I wish they had a DO NOT MAIL database from the county’s Supervisor of Election Office. Contact the candidate and or your party affiliation to stop the political mailers. There is no guarantee that your name will be removed. But try anyways.
I noticed at the beginning of the summer getting political mailers from my registered party along with non-party judges. I hold the state accountable for the non-party affiliated judges, which are hiding their part own party affiliation. The general public has the right to know. They only way to find out is to do your homework and make contact with these candidates. Where do they stand on the issues?
Other trends I have noticed are that many potential judge candidates vying for a seat on the bench. Some of these lawyers I have never heard of. Many of them come from diverse backgrounds. The most sitting judges have not fully started their campaigns yet. I believe that these sitting judges may think they have already won. This is may not be the case and watch for new judges on the bench.
Bring on the political attack ads. What you read may not always be true on the mailer. Campaigns may try to embellish negative points against their challenger(s). I call this the WOW factor.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic there are not any in-person political hob nobs this year. These are fun meet and greet events to get to know the candidates running for political office. We will have to wait another 2-4 years before these events are scheduled again.
Finally, watch your mailbox for more political junk mail. It is will not stop until after the elections are over. Always do your homework on picking your favorite candidates. Picking along party line may not always the best choice for your community. Good luck
