Pull Democrat ballot

To the Editor:

A recent column in the Northwest Herald urged Democrats and Independents to take a Republican ballot in Tuesday’s primary election.

Why waste an opportunity to vote for admittedly fewer Democrats when unopposed local Republicans will win without your vote and there are perfectly good Democratic candidates running in several elections?

There are Democrats running for County Board in three of six county districts. Two are incumbents, Nick Chirikos in District 1 and Paula Yensen in District 5, who work diligently at representing all of us. Kathy Bergan Schmidt is running in District 3.

Please take a Democratic ballot and help grow the party locally.
