  Missouri Ballot Issues
by Kerry Messer

From The Publisher

As readers of the St. Louis MetroVoice know, we are non-partisan and do not endorse candidates or political parties. Issues however, are a different story. On November 5th, voters in Missouri are being asked to go the polls to vote on six very important ballot issues that will effect their pocketbooks, their private property, how their tax dollars are spent and how they are to be governed.

Getting to the bottom line, the MetroVoice is urging voters to vote "NO" on Constitutional Amendment numbers 1, 2 and 4, as well as Proposition A and the issue of holding a Constitutional Convention to potentially rewrite Missouri's Constitution. We are however encouraging voters to vote "YES" on Constitutional Amendment #3.

The following is our justification for our recommendations for each of the six ballot issues, preceded by the official ballot language on each issue that will appear on the November 5th ballot.

MetroVoice Missouri & Illinois General Election 2002 Candidate Questionaires

The following are copies of the six different, yet similar, candidate questionnaires that were sent to all General Election candidates within the MetroVoice's readership area in Missouri and Illinois.

Since there were six different questionnaires, it is extremely important that you compare the candidate's responses to the right questionnaire to see whether or not you agree with the candidate's positions/opinions.

St. Louis MetroVoice Missouri & Illinois General Election 2002 Candidate Questionnaire Responses
by Jim Day


Below, and on the following pages, are the responses to our General Election 2002 Candidate Questionnaire from candidates running for elected office from the Republican, Democrat and Libertarian parties. Even though a few independent and Green Party candidates will appear on the November 5th ballot, we chose, for a number of reasons, not to include those candidates in our General Election issue.

The purpose of our questionnaire (which was stated in the cover letter that was sent to each candidate) was, " ...to provide candidates the opportunity to relate their opinions and/or positions on issues that concern our readers and the general public and to connect citizens with those desiring to represent them." Our cover letter continued by stating, " We do not endorse candidates or political parties and would greatly appreciate your participation in this issue by completing the enclosed candidate questionnaire and providing us with your photograph."

Candidates were given clear and concise instructions with a number of ways they could return their questionnaires and photos (U.S. Mail, fax or e-mail). Every candidate was mailed a questionnaire via First Class U.S. Mail. Only two questionnaires were received back as Undeliverable -- Democratic incumbent Senator Jean Carnahan's and the Illinois Republican candidate for U.S. House District 17, Lane Evans'. However, both candidates' campaign offices were contacted and faxed or e-mailed copies of the questionnaire and cover letter.

In going the extra mile, most of the candidates were even called to make sure they received the questionnaire and many were e-mailed reminders. We even extended the deadline right up to the day before we had to go to press to make sure every candidate was given every opportunity to respond.
