Recommended Candidates 2022:

Our favorite candidates support the issues that protect our environment, and our local community. These candidates have been well vetted by various community groups, and have proven their dedication to the issues that matter the most.  Many of them are not as well funded as many of the “big-business candidates”, so they need our support. Every vote counts, and please help us spread the word.
