Jennifer: I Like Republican Brand

Jennifer Locke (re: Partisanship on nonpartisan boards): I'm not sure it is so much of an issue as some are making it out to be. Doesn't 65% of the county usually vote Republican anyway? Many think that education has been run by liberal and progressives for years, so those that vote Republican might like the fact that these candidates are stating what they are party wise. Christa Hazel has even put conservative on her signs. In my opinion, there is nothing wrong with that. Campaigning is somewhat the game of branding yourself. With all the hard work and effort someone puts into running for office, if something like this is going to help their chances, why not do it? I put on my signs Conservative Republican when I ran. '

Question: Would it help/hurt a candidate in our divided community if he put “nonpartisan” on his political yard signs, when running for School Board, hospital board of City Council?
