I wanted to write and compliment John Ellis for his political reporting in general, and specifically on the Assembly District 31 race. If it were not for The Bee and Mr. Ellis, most people would still not know there is a special election April 5 (and early voting has already begun). His articles on the candidates have been balanced and fair.
Compliments to The Bee for covering political stories most local outlets ignore. For example, I do not know of any other media outlet that reported on the state campaign finance violation allegation against Clint Olivier, which may turn out to be one of the big political stories of the year.
