Jumpin’ Judicial Candidates, Batman!

I rolled into the West Grey Metropolitan Multi-Service Center around 4 this afternoon, and promptly slammed on my breaks. Traffic jam in the lot. Should’ve gone with my first instinct to vote at Moody Park, where I could also check in on the fantastic Luis Jiménez Vaquero statue.
