Proof voters dont know the candidates
Proof voters don't know the candidates
Just a final note on the election. The recent story on Lauren Nowak's election win in the DuPage County Board 6th District demonstrates in no small measure the lack of knowledge by many of the voters of who is actually running.
I mean no disrespect to Ms. Nowak and wish her good luck in her position. She sounds like someone who will try hard. My issue is really with voters who simply don't know the issues or the candidates for many of these local elections, but yet they feel compelled to fill in all the blanks regardless of what is at stake. People, this is not a multiple choice test. You don't have to fill in every blank. Let people who know decide. This was very evident with the Constitutional Amendment as well. People simply didn't know, but had to fill in the blank.
To demonstrate this, Ms. Nowak, at 25 years old and unemployed, was chosen over Kevin Wiley, a retired lieutenant colonel in the Army serving 2 tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, has an MBA from the Keller School of Business, has served on the Bartlett Fire Department Board, and is employed as a project manager. I have to ask: How much better of a candidate do you expect?
Voters in the future, please, either understand the issues and candidates, or simply leave it blank. It's OK to do this.
