It’s always tricky endorsing candidates, especially when we’re talking about wannabe elected officials on the local level. We don’t like hurting feelings, and the 80-plus people running for various offices in the North Metro area have gone out of their way to spend countless hours campaigning to get picked to carry out an often thankless job. We commend everyone for running, even those we didn’t select.
But we had to pick someone in each of these races, and after spending hours speaking with everyone running, this is who we liked and why in every race from Longmont down to Northglenn.
