Reader Opinion: Vote for Kern

The House District 6B is comprised of nearly 43,000 Voters. Shouldn't these voters decide who will be representing them on the November ballot or in St Paul.

I have heard it said numbers matter. They do. Why should an endorsement where approximately 125 people choose who you will vote for in November? The House District 6B is comprised of nearly 43,000 Voters. Shouldn't these voters decide who will be representing them on the November ballot or in St Paul.

I have become a firm believer in two things. No. 1, we need to be a primary-only state so the people decide. No. 2, term limits. If you knew you only had a specified number of years you would make your mark in life and at the Capitol. Everyone talks about term limits until it is their term.

I am running for House 6B and appreciate your vote Aug. 9.
