NWCitizen endorses candidates. I believe in candidates who showintegrity - honesty. Or as much as we can get in a publicofficial. Then I look for a track record of openess to citizenparticipation from those in office. For first timers, I look for acommittment to open process - and how they conduct their campaign.Third, I am an environmentalist and a fiscal conservative so Ilook for those qualities. But, these are third. With honesty andopeness, we citizens can bring government around to what we want.These qualities are rare. Very rare. We can only make the best choicebetween two candidates. Here are mine. - John Servais
