Art's & George's Calls to Action

Art Callaham's previous newspaper column promoting nonpartisan local elections is worthy of serious reflection.("The timing is right to take politics out of local elections", Herald-Mail, March 6th, 2011,

In a similar vein, I previously have introduced legislation to enable
nonpartisan elections in West Virginia (see previous 1/25/11 entry, "More Good Governance Initiatives"), and will continue to pursue this elevation of citizens over political parties.

Here in West Virginia, we have effective nonpartisan elections for
our school boards, and more of the same could provide even more
citizen empowerment.

George Washington and our Founding Fathers were dissenters from
the notion of political parties, and perhaps it's now past time for us to revisit their concerns.
