Everything doesn’t need to be red or blue

The Carver County Republican Party is planning on taking a novel step this evening — issuing endorsements for nonpartisan county commissioner races, and possibly for local races as well.

This is not a positive step.  County and local races don’t need to be infected by the partisan venom that has paralyzed progress in St. Paul and Washington over recent years.  And, in fact, most of the issues dealt with by city and county officials are well-defined and only have tangential relationships to the larger philosophical issues grappled with at higher levels of government. 

Voters should be wary of candidates in these races who flaunt their party affiliation.  Whose interests are they really looking out for?
