Three challenge Rich Gordon in Assembly race

Original post made on May 12, 2012

As Rich Gordon, D-Menlo Park, asks District 24 residents to return him to the state Assembly for another two years, three challengers with no experience in elective politics are telling voters they can do a better job representing their interests in Sacramento.

I definitely will not be voting for Rich Gordon. He's salivating over the prospect of committing CA tax payers towards hundreds of billions of debt to pay off unions for supporting Brown in the last election. That schools, and just about everything else in the state will continue to crumble due to lack of funding, because it will be be consumed by the train to nowhere, is immaterial to Rich.

I sincerely hope one of the other candidates distinguished themselves beyond what's written here.

Rosas is the only candidate with fresh specific ideas, I will vote for him.

"That schools, and just about everything else in the state will continue to crumble due to lack of funding, because it will be be consumed by the train to nowhere, is immaterial to Rich."

The schools and just about anything else have crumbled because of Prop 13 and the only way to reverse this is to amend Prop 13.

yes, prop 13 has been a disaster for the state, I can't argue with that. Unfortunately Sacramento has refused to even consider modifying it.

The CA HSR project will make the current abysmal fiscal situation even worse, that is unless you are a labor union working on the project, a politician collecting campaign contributions for pushing this turd on the state, or a johnny come lately land owner who just so happens to own land in the path of the train. I submit that Mr. Gordon is more interested in towing the Democratic party line, supporting HSR, and waiting for the donations to come in.
