Trudi’s Corner: Primary Election Fatigue

by Trudi Cunningham

How many of you are glad that they primary elections are over? How many were inundated with literature and fliers? How many were overwhelmed with telephone calls?

I cannot remember, for the many years that I voted, that this was the case as it was in this primary. How much waste was involved as far as paper was concerned, even when it was noted that it had been “recycled?” How about all the money that was spent and could have been put to better use, considering the economic situation?


I don’t care whose side that you’re on – Republican or Democrat. You know if you’re going to vote and also the person running for whatever position. The simple fact is, there are so many who will not vote in the primary because they don’t want to declare a political party for whatever reason. I know, I’m sounding like a broken record – an old-time expression for those of you who might remember.

As most of you do know, (here I go again) there are situations when a vindictive action comes to light. If proven, it should be investigated and dealt with in the right direction. I do believe some people don’t know, or don’t have the “gumption” to get with it. I also know that the pressure or push involved this time was more than I have noticed in many years. Everybody seemed to be playing “cat and mouse” and “digging at each other.” Give it a break.
