During an extraordinary year of voter dissatisfaction with national and state politics, one would hope to see the local media reporting on the choices voters will find on their ballots this November 2nd. Not necessarily endorsing, but informing the public of their options and digging into them in the public interest.

Disappointingly, State House District 47 candidate Ron Sanderson was not invited to LivingstonDaily.com’s  online forum held this past Thursday the 14th, in which only the Republican and Democrat candidates were allowed. My polite and professional question to the editors about why an alternative to the same old parties was ignored has not been responded to as of this posting.
