I love early voting. Here’s what I did. Since I already got rid of my ballot, I may have left something/one off.
Senate: Kamala Harris A no-brainer. Good work on homeowners’ issues and mortgage fraud. ,
Congress: Jared Huffman, another no-brainer. He has repeatedly demonstrated his interest in the North Coast and if he doesn’t agree with you, he’ll say so. We’re lucky to have him.
District 3 Supervisor: couldn’t vote in this one but donated to Mike Wilson.
District 1 Supervisor: even though she’s a Democrat on paper, I couldn’t bring myself to vote for Estellle, who has been instrumental in the gutting of the GPU, and the only other candidate, “Bud” Rogers is clearly not ready for primetime so I left it blank.
Assembly: Jim Wood has been an okay Assemblymember and has taken a leadership role in grappling with the challenges of the new cannabis landscape, but I was so pissed off when I heard that he had accepted a $1500 round of golf from Silverado, I left him blank also. I worked for the State and if a client brought me a box of cookies I had to report it, and those reports are on the record for all time. Jim! You’re a dentist! You can afford to pay your own damn greens fees and what you did was DUMB.
Ballot measure: the goofy measure that apparently affect only folks who have been turned out of office but haven’t had their salaries stopped yet is worthy of approval even though it will only affect maybe one person a year. Housekeeping measure.
And I got my Bernie sticker. I’ll be happy to vote for HRC in the general but I want Sanders to win the California primary. Let’s see how it goes.
Just remember to VOTE if you haven’t.
