It would look exceptionally odd if lawmakers pushed systematic changes to the state pension system now that they’ve lost access to the PERSI perk.
Republican Lt. Gov. Brad Little has the experience and knowledge to be an effective governor. Paulette Jordan, his Democratic challenger, has run a campaign that shows she won’t lead the state effectively.
Former Chief Justice Jim Jones has a good point — there’s no good reason for certain statewide offices, especially the superintendent of public instruction, to be partisan. What matters there isn’t ideology but ability.
Kristin Collum is one of the most competent and intelligent statewide candidates the Gem State has seen.

I was able to listen to the debate between Janice McGeachin and Kristen Collum on public radio.

For almost two years now I have listened to Ms. Pettingill share with us her extreme dislike of President Trump as presented in letters to the editor. Someone with her mindset appears to be me to be lacking in a complete sense of civility based on her continued foul mouth, most recently call…
