The Duluth Budgeteer, which non-Duluthians can’t fathom because its half advertiser, half newspaper, just published a great editorial. Here’s the nub:
“Voters should not just vote along party lines or vote for incumbents who have been in office for years.
Several of the incumbents on the ballot have held their positions for years â€” if not decades. Maybe they’ve held on to the position because they’re doing a top-notch job.
Or maybe they’ve just held that position for so long because people assume that the incumbents are the best men or women for the job.”
