After many weeks of interviewing candidates, pouring over bios and examining track records, the East Valley Tribune Editorial Board has come up with its recommendations for the 2010 Election.
It was a long and thoughtful process — and one we haven’t undertaken in quite some time. Under new ownership, the Tribune now strives for an independent voice on its editorial pages, offering views from both sides of the aisle. We believe our endorsements reflect that philosophy as well. You’ll find a variety of candidates on our list, as we looked more at the individuals, their beliefs and their effectiveness in representing their constituency rather than the political ideology they represent.
Please use our endorsements as one of your tools heading into the voting both. But we also encourage you to look at other sources of information such as the candidates’ websites, their personal profiles on the AZ Unplugged page of our website and sites like the Morrison Institute at ASU or the Eight Arizona PBS “Horizon” debates.
