Parties should supply candidate info

Posted: July 28, 2012 - 11:10pm


It would be nice to have each candidate’s stands on one emailed document sent to a voter requesting this from the party they belong to. I have heard several voters state they are not voting July 31 because of lack of knowledge of the candidates.

I realize the candidates came on (television) for the congressional seats. A simple one- or two-page document would give people the knowledge they need on each candidate. I spent hours searching the Web pages, and it is a pain in the butt to get information about one candidate.

GOP Candidate Information

I certainly understand your frustration. The Columbia County Republican Party website has a page with links to the various candidates campaign websites. Not all candidates share their info with the party organization. Also, keep in mind some are non-partisan positions not affiliated with any party. The link below will hopefully help you in making an informed decision in tomorrow's primary election.
