Rarely a day goes by when someone doesn’t ask me what I know about a candidate running for office. I am honored by such inquiries. I also feel the responsibility that comes with any response I give since my response may affect that person’s vote. As the leader of a nonpartisan, not-for-profit educational organization, I do not make endorsements. As the primary election draws closer, the number of inquiries I am receiving for some “insider insight” has increased, and I cannot physically respond to everyone. So, what can I tell you?
Well, I can share my thoughts about what I look for in a candidate for a particular office. So, that’s what I’ll be doing over the next few days. I will do so unapologetically from a Christian perspective, based on what I understand from Scripture. The debate on whether that is appropriate is for another day.
