  1. Brien Kinkel Says:

    Progressive Neighbors’ endorsement of Delegate Roger Manno over incumbent Senator Mike Lenett is unfortunate. Lenett is by far the more effective legislator. On policy, there is virtually no difference between them. Both favor progressive positions. But in the 4 years since they were first elected, Lenett has introduced and passed 27 bills. Manno’s bill total for the same period is 7. In the same period, Delegate Manno has withdrawn 16 of his own bills–removed them from consideration before a vote on them could be taken. During the same period, Lenett withdrew 3.

    A prominent endorser of Manno proclaimed, “It’s amazing how much you can accomplish if you don’t care who gets the credit.” However, since a great deal of sustained effort is required to get one’s legislation through the General Assembly to final passage, I must conclude that that kind of slogan is best employed by candidates who haven’t accomplished much.
