JUDGES Recommendations

The most common default method of deciding whether to vote to retain judges is based on whether a Republican or Democrat appointed them. And they are listed below with who appointed them. However, the decisions below are based on their actual rulings, which may be different than that of who appointed them. YOU must decide to stick with the opinion of a conservative on the bench who knows their rulings or the default position of who appointed them. The clear cut decisions where both methods agree are in red (8) and blue (9). Those that you will need to decide are in purple (4).

    Curious about school board candidates. Is there a voter guide for these critical elections? I’m trying to find the conservative candidates for the Lee’s Summit school board. Thanks. Ed
