Spring election is antidote for frustration, anger at government

The antidote for frustration and anger and concern for the state of policies at the state and federal levels is here – Tuesday’s spring election.

The race at the top of the ticket is an important one: superintendent of public instruction. And the race for Dane County Circuit Court Judge is unusually competitive. Both are worthy of your best decision making.

But the races down-ballot, for local city councils and school boards are where the real action is and where results that really affect the lives of all of us and our families will be determined.

Sadly there are too few contested races for Madison alder seats. But there are a few, and they are important. So too are the races for Madison School Board. A number of cities will elect a mayor Tuesday and there are area school district referendum questions.

So, make a difference. Be heard. Get out and vote.
