  1. it would be nice to know from the comptroller candidates: why the taxes we have are not displayed? cigarettes/ gasoline

  2. some counties are going to have elections for circuit court judge. The judge gets appointed first + then they try to retain their seat, but someone else can file for it. The candidate that is not a judge cannot call themselves a judge, nor can be they pictured in their robe [sign], + the candidate that is a judge can/ its ok to feel like judges that are in their robe + are candidates are using their office, their appointment for personal gain. + just remember, those judges that are statewide seats, statewide offfices, they are appointed + have to keep their seat, they cannot have challengers. Those are the ones that are yes\ no, its ok to feel like they are treated differently than others, its ok to feel like they get special treatment because they cannot be challenged for their seat like other judges can be.
