Candidates for Office This November

(Recommendations are in Blue)

President

Donald Trump/Mike Pence * - Trump has done a great job, if you list his accomplishment.  Trade, economy, justice, crime, military, wars and peace treaties are all areas he has achieved his promises.  His rhetoric is sometimes annoying, but I just remember what he has done.  

Joe Biden/Kamala Harris - Biden is suffering from dementia and will not serve a full term.  At every opportunity Joe and his family have made money on his role as VP.  He got is dumb son an appointment as a military officer, but he was discharged when he couldn’t pass the drug tests.  As Obama’s Secratary of Defense (Gates) said, “Joe Biden has been wrong on every issue.”  Kamala Harris was Willie Brown’s mistress for more than a decade.  She lacks even a vestage of morals and honor. 

Hawkins/Walker - 

Jorgensen/Cohen -

Kanye West/Roque Rocky De La Fue - Better than Biden/Harris


US House of Representative 4th

Tom McClintock * - Tom represents our district well.  He is a fiscal hawk.

Brynne Kennedy - I read Brynne’s candidate statement and she is clearly running away from being a liberal democrat.  The problem for us is that when you elect a democrat they go to congress and vote for liberal socialist policies supported by Nancy Pelosi.  Liberal are some how OK explaining why they didn’t do what they promised.  I don’t know Brynne, but I find it impossible to trust any democrats in congress.


State Senate 1st Senate District

Megan Dahlev * -  I know very little about Dahle.  Her candidate statement suggests that she support our conservative values. 

ELizabeth Betancourt - Elizabeth appears to be just another liberal social justice activist.  Her candidate statement has a list of conservative issues.  But she is a democrat and I’ve found that once elected they vote for activist socialist policies.  I look forward to hearing more from her.


State Assembly District 6

Kevin Kiley * - Kevin is a good representative.  He is constantly fighting for our values.  He is very nice and his office does work for us.  I called for help with a state agency and his staff were very helpful on a tough issue. 

Jackie Smith - She is just another bay area liberal, who wants to destroy our community by substituting her values for ours.


Rocklin City Council (Voters can vote for up to three candidates.  Voting for more than one candidate waters down your vote.  I suggest picking your favorite and only voting for them.)

Josh Rolph * - Josh is the best of the candidates.  See details at https://joshrolph.com/ .  The Placer Republican Party endorsed Josh.

Royce David - I do not know the candidate and there is no candidate statement on line.  I will update this as I obtain more information.

John M. Hobbs -  I do not know the candidate and there is no candidate statement on line.  I will update this as I obtain more information.

Joe Patterson - I like Joe, but he has not delivered the fiscal responsibility he promised.  Sadly, he has failed.  He is to willing to compromise when he knows better.  

Greg Janda - Greg is a nice guy, but has supported bad decisions on the purchase of the old golf course and the misguided building of the Quarry Park.  The park has been an ecconomic disaster for the cities budget.  The city manager was fired over his mismanagement of this debacle.  The city is still dealing with the law suits and unsustainable costs of its operation.  The city council should all be fired for their lack of oversight of the city manager.  They are all culpable.  Joe and Ken own this as well.  He supported all the new construction in East Rocklin without the needed street improvements.  He also supported the traffic circles that are just stupid.  

Ken Broadway - Broadway is a terrible candidate.  My personal experience with him, shows him to be a liar and cheater.  I hold him without regard.  He is an was part of all of the bad decisions for years at city hall.  He supported bad decisions on the purchase of the old golf course and the misguided building of the Quarry Park.  The park has been an ecconomic disaster for the cities budget.  The city manager was fired over his mismanagement of this debacle.  The city is still dealing with the law suits and unsustainable costs of its operation.  The city council should all be fired for their lack of oversight of the city manager.  They are all culpable.  He supported all the new construction in East Rocklin without the needed street improvements.  He also supported the traffic circles that are just stupid.

Sinclair

Pope

Lee

Bellehumeur

Anderson

Garcia


Rocklin Unified School Board (I am reviewing information about candidates.  Currently do not have an opinion)

Camille Maben - Ms Maben is an incumbent.  She has served 8 terms.  I am reluctant to support people in office for long periods.  32 years plus 4 more doesn’t make sence.

Tiffany Saathoff - Ms. Saathoff may be a great person, but she works for RUSD.  I am reluctant to vote for employees should be on boards.  This creates a conflict of interest in my mind.  Ms. Saathoff is my second choice, among this group.   

Rachelle Price -  As I review the candidates, I find that I like Ms. Prices experience and priorities.  Her website has more details  (www.rachelle4rocklin.com ).  I like that she does not work for the school district.  I think it is a conflict of interest for an employee to be on the board.  (Incumbent by appointment)

Julie Leavens-Hupp - Ms. Leavens-Hupp appears to be a very nice person.  I struggle with having teachers on the school board.  Sacramento City School District is an example of the worst district in the region.  Often school boards are at odds with the Teachers Union.  This creates a conflict of interest.  

Sutherland - I haven’t found anything about this candidate.
