Kudos to the non-partisan League of Women Voters this week for providing their “Candidates’ Answers” insert in the Isthmus. It is available if you pick up the Isthmus this week or on their web site (www.lwvdanecounty.org). It is an indispensable resource for reviewing the requirements for voting and for learning about positions each candidate holds on a series of issues important to their roles. However, the walk of shame is in order for the overwhelming number of Republican candidates who chose not to respond. How is a voter supposed to get reasoned information about a candidates’ views? Television commercials?

I think not.
