Governor’s Council still in eye of storm
Many, including critics, seek seats
If you haven’t heard of the Governor’s Council, you’re not alone. If you have, it may be for the wrong reasons — the grandstanding, bickering, and sideshow antics that have helped fuel a recent state Senate bid to abolish the obscure but important body. Now there are 27 candidates running for the council’s eight seats in Thursday’s primaries, and even some of them want to eliminate it. The council’s chief job is voting on nominees to the state judiciary.
