PARTISAN: Answer these, please

Print Article

I know I am a newbie to participation in a political party, but I just don’t understand some things and I need to. Like what does the reader get from reading letters, like those written this morning by Tappero and Ginorio, that do not add facts, give their reasoning, or anything that would aid to understanding the pros or cons of an issue. Why even are they printed? Maybe the Coeur d’Alene Press should have a “letters for debate” section and “letters of emotional upchuck” section.

I would really like to hear the pros and cons of showing party affiliation in local elections. I would like to know why that is more important than the candidate’s stand on local issues (and any new issues) and the priority given to them by the candidate. I would also like to know how the candidate voted on previous issues if he/she held an office before.
