“I think they should remain elected. When you get into appointment, you get into a system of friends of friends and buddies of buddies.”
“It just seems like the government is taking more power away from the people, so I think it should remain in the hands of the people.”
“Elected. I just believe the people should have that opportunity to elect those offices instead of people already in office selecting who they want.”
“I’m not in favor of further concentration of power. Elections do serve a purpose.”
