The Gazette is out with its endorsements in local races.
Editorial: Kalamazoo should stand for equality
Editorial: Recommendations For Kalamazoo City Commission
Editorial: Recommendations For Portage City Council
To no one's surprise, the Gazette endorsed the discrimination ordinance.
For the city commission, it's no surprise that the Gazette endorsed incumbents Hopewell, McKinney, Cooney, Andersen, and Miller. I'm shocked that they endorsed ethically challenged, ACORN-employed, convicted embezzler and community organizer Stephanie Moore. They also endorsed ordinance opponent Nicholas Boyd, while praising recent college graduate Anna Schmitt.
In Portage, it's no surprise that they endorsed the incumbents, and mildly surprising that they endorsed Jim Pearson for the open seat.
