Rich McIntyre: Character counts

Mail Tribune | April 12

At a time when Political Action Committees control almost every election, it is rare to find a qualified candidate who refuses to buy into that corrupt system.

Jeff Golden, a candidate for State Senate, has done just that.

Character counts, and Jeff has it. While PAC and special interest endorsements and money flow to his opponents, Jeff is financing his campaign one contribution at a time, knocking on doors, and putting a face to the voice so many in the valley have known for years.

Candidates like to say they cannot be bought, that special interests have no special access or control over their vote. As someone who has run major campaigns, I can assure you that is not true.

You have a choice in May to vote for someone who cannot be bought, and whose understanding of the issues is beyond question. Jeff Golden for State Senate.
