Wow, I see the good-old-boy network is alive and well in San Mateo County. Look at those folks donating money to each other's campaigns. How can they be impartial if a situation arises where they need to make an objective ruling? Hope some day the consuming public will wake up and vote these good-old-boys out of office; until then, it's business as usual in San Mateo County. Very sad.
Hope some day the "public will wake up and vote these good-old-boys out of office; until then, it's business as usual in San Mateo County."
You are so wrong. It isn't a case of the "public waking up", as it is proven that your hyperbolic definition never leads to lasting results. The system has to change.
Until either campaign finance reform or public financing of elections occurs, "it's business as usual".
As an aside, Munks doesn't have a campaign site, he also hasn't had an opponent in the last two elections. That ain't good ol' boy networks; that is a complete lack of interest by anyone in recruiting a candidate.
The article didn't say if Monk is putting money into signs, mailers, ads, etc. If he's not, this is mighty suspicious ....
Munks won't do interviews because he's terrified that reporters will ask him about Operation Dollhouse. Coward.
Yesterday Juan Lopez, Michael Stogner and Mark de Paula were on a Spanish radio station. Did anyone hear the interview?
I think Peter did the right thing.
If Lanza/Fry intended to do an initiative they should have registered to do so.
When Citizens for Fair and Responsible Pension Reform formed to do an initiative we did so as a special purpose committee.
Not as a general purpose one. Kind of truth in advertising. But then again we weren't secretive about what we were about to do. We did not hide the consequences of our initiative.......
Don't miss out on the discussion!
