Keep partisanship out of governance

To the editor: On May 2, the League of Women Voters Roseville, Maplewood, Falcon Heights passed a resolution recommending that political parties in our membership area not endorse candidates or financially support candidates for city council or school board. These offices have traditionally been designated non-partisan. The resolution is for the 2005 elections. The local elected offices are not party designated. Also ask yourselves, does the party platform deal with local issues?
