The process of Democracy
Judge Vicki Wright, candidate for 3rd District Appellate Court, was one of many candidates (or their surrogates) who thronged to Springfield in the wee hours of Monday morning in order to file their campaign petitions at 8:00 sharp.
She submitted an interesting and thoughtful account of her experience, which is posted on her discussion page.
I stood there from 4:00 a.m. engaging in both silence and spirited debates. We stood with candidates from the top of the ballot to the bottom, all in the same line and all on a level turf for the moment.Many thanks to Judge Wright for her contribution.
