The Kate Slate – June Primary Results

Posted: June 10th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Elections, Kate Slate | Tags: | Comments Off on The Kate Slate – June Primary Results

Well, this election was a bit of a bummer.  Though, everyone seems pretty excited that 16 did not pass, and I am glad that dropping money into a misleading campaign doesn’t always pay off.  And yet, with the passing of 14, I am worried about the implications of private campaign funding, as well as turning the General Election into a run-off election of the top two vote recipients from the Primary.

If the new change in the election process has inspired anything, it is an earlier Kate Slate (at least two weeks in advance?) and to ensure I host slate parties again for upcoming elections.  Stay tuned for a General Election slate party in October.

Here are the results of candidates and issues  from the Kate Slate:

Superintendent of Public Instruction – Tom Torlakson: Torlakson & Aceves to run-off in the General Election

Judge of the Superior Court, Seat #6 – Linda Colfax: Elected

Judge of the Superior Court, Seat #15 – Michael Nava: Nava & Ulmer to run-off in the General Election
