Endorsement Thread 2014: Who Are You Voting For?

As of 9am today, early voting in the May 2014 primary election is underway. That means it's time for the annual OrangePolitics endorsement thread where we ask you, if you feel so inclined, to share with the community who you are voting for (or would vote for) and why.

Here is our list of all of the candidates with links to their websites and social media. You can also review all the information about this year's races that we have here on OP, including:

As always, this is a special-rules post. The rules: Only write who you're voting for (and why, if you like). You may also list the people you would vote for if you lived in their districts. Do not refer in any way to to any candidates you are not supporting. If you don't follow the rules, your comment will be removed. You're free to critique the candidates through comments on other posts or by posting your own blog entry. In fact, you're warmly invited to do so!

Now tell us YOUR picks

It's that time of year again. Early voting is already underway, and those of us who pay literally any attention to local politics are frequently asked by the rest of the world for whom they should vote.

Early voting is off to a quick start. Here is OP's traditional special-rules post to learn about your own preferences on the ballot.
