Re: “Choices clear for lieutenant governor and secretary of state,” (TNT, 9/23).
I am astounded by your endorsement of Kim Wyman for secretary of state. If Wyman’s “incremental approach” is a “surer path to accomplish her agenda,” why have her first four years been such a miserable flop?
Turnout has dropped in every election Wyman has presided over in her four years in office when you compare it to the same type of election historically. The 2015 general election saw turnout drop to the historic low of 38 percent, a failing grade if I’ve ever seen one.
What’s more, Wyman failed to deliver on her campaign promises from 2012. We still do not have a one-stop business portal that our state desperately needs or a statewide printed primary’s voter guide — a critical piece of election education. Wyman has also failed to champion any of the so-called “shared priorities” that are proven tools to increase engagement and participation.
We need a change of leadership in the secretary of state’s office. Tina Podlodowski will be the advocate voters and small businesses in this state deserve.
