Don’t Forget to Vote !

By Emerson Drake

It’s time for recommendations for our local elections.  If you’ve read the articles here on the EyeOnModesto

and listened to the radio show  ‘What’s on America’s Mind‘, you’re well aware of our stances.  The issues facing some offices make our choice extremely clear (MID water sales and Board Governance Policy).  In others, the candidates past actions makes our choice easy (Developer/Profiteers).

From participating at MID meetings and city committee and council  meetings, candidate forums and following the money, we’ve learned the true beliefs of the candidates not the ones they tell the public in order to get elected.  There is even one candidate for Hart-Ransom School District  who is in favor of forced public urination for 13 year old girls in mixed company (you can’t make this stuff up.  Candidate (Athens Abell) wrote it on her facebook).

MID District 4 is the toughest call.  We have three candidates who could perform well but unfortunately one must be chosen.  The polls are suggesting the candidate most likely to defeat Jim Mortensen (arguably the worst candidate for the people/ratepayers), is Jake Wenger.  For a complete breakdown on the election candidates check out recent “What’s on America’s Mind” broadcasts.

Here’s the list:

For MID   Division 2 Carmen Sabatino        Division 3 Les Johnson                      Division 4  Jake Wenger

For Modesto City Council       District 2 Juan Telles           District 4  Juan Melgoza                         District 5  Jenny Ketchum Kenoyer

Modesto City Schools District full Term   Michael  Scheid       Sue Zwahlen         David Allen      Ruben Villalobos

Modesto City Schools District 2 year term  Jordan Dickson

Hart-Ransom School District      Sandy Rigghs     Jim Cover   Richie Fultz

Measure V    Yes

Measure X    No

While we need more police and fire the money won’t be spent there so as much as I would like to support this measure I can’t.
