With the primary fast approaching, I have finally decided who to support. I have listened to the ads and to the candidate’s rhetoric and I have come to the conclusion that the best choice for California is Meg Whitman. Poizners ads are far from truthful and he has chosen several out of context sound bites in an effort to portray Whitman as something other than she is. Our economy is a mess and Whitman knows how to run a successful company (eBay seems to be doing OK). I have also chosen to support her “team,” those with whom she would like to work. So here it is:
Governor: Meg Whitman
Lt. Governor: Abel Maldonado
Atty. General: John Eastman
Insurance Comm.: Mike Villines
Controller: Tony Strickland
Sec. of State: Damon Dunn
US Senator: Carly Fiorina
US Rep: Dan Lungren (dist 3)
Assembly: Jack Sieglock (dist 10)
County Central Committee: Tony Andrade (dist 5)
Board of Equalization: George Runner (dist 2)
I’d also like to put in a plug for Jim Cooper as sheriff. I know Jim, but I know his daughter well from coaching Sheldon softball. Here is what I know about good kids… they come from good parents and Jim’s daughter is a good kid. I can’t give a higher recommendation than that.
Truth be told, I think we should elect only candidates who are not currently in office and that is how I am voting, with very few exceptions. Fire em all! Let’s start over.
