Po­lit­i­cal en­dorse­ments

Houston Chronicle Sunday - - OUTLOOK -

Re­gard­ing “We judge Hous­ton’s judges so you can vote with ease” (Out­look, Thurs­day): While I ap­pre­ci­ate the Chron­i­cle ed­i­to­rial board judg­ing judges for its read­ers, I dis­agree with the sug­ges­tion that we should al­low the ed­i­to­rial board to do the hard think­ing and just “vote with ease.” While the board’s think­ing and judg­ment are im­por­tant and valu­able in de­cid­ing who to vote for, that should be the be­gin­ning, not the end, of our process.

If there are qual­i­fied can­di­dates, we should do our own in­de­pen­dent think­ing, seek­ing ad­di­tional re­li­able sources of in­for­ma­tion, and make the hard choice of who has earned our votes. Al­low­ing any­one, in­clud­ing the ed­i­to­rial board, to do our think­ing for us may be easy, but it is rarely wise. Jim Green­wood, Hous­ton
