Muni League ranks 41st District candidates running for House

The Municipal League conducted its annual review of the candidates running for local elected office. Fifty volunteers devoted more than a thousand hours to the non-partisan process. To determine candidate ratings, the volunteers reviewed candidate questionnaires, studied the public record, spoke with references and conducted interviews with candidates. Committee members then rated each candidate on four criteria: involvement, character, effectiveness and knowledge.

The ratings are not endorsements, the League states. They assess each candidate’s potential to be effective in office and ability to serve the community.

For the upcoming election cycle, the League has given the following ratings to candidates running for office in the 41st District.

For 41st District State Representative, Pos. 1, the two candidates are Tana Senn, a Democrat and the incumbent, and Bill Stinson, a Republican. The Municipal League rated Senn as “Good” and Stinson as “Not Qualified."

For the 41st District, State Representative Pos. 2, Judy Clibborn, a Democrat and incumbent, is running against Alex O’Neil, a Republican. The League rated Clibborn as “Very Good.” O’Neil, however, declined to participate in the process and was not rated.
