Longevity doesn’t necessarily equate to most effective person in office

-A A +A

At a workshop in May I was having a conversation with a fellow participant and the presenter. They were supporting rival candidates. Each of them proclaimed that their candidate was a listener, and each had direct experience with the other’s candidate not listening.
I realized how important other information is for choosing a candidate. In the last five years I have spent many days in committee rooms and in Roundhouse galleries while bills were debated and voted on.
I’ve learned that legislative skill and seniority are poorly correlated and some freshman legislators are much more capable than some in the upper quartile of  longevity.
I have known Jeannette Wallace and members of her family for decades – at times carpooling with her husband and doing research with her son.
Jeannette received my support from the time of her first campaign, and my gratitude for her dedicated service.
Now I am supporting her opponent Stephanie Richard. Why? Partly, because after four decades registering as a Republican I transitioned to the Democratic Party. Beyond partisanship are more compelling reasons.
