Funny article in SF Examiner today says Horsley wins seat.

Good luck to both.

For us out here near the freeway, we support Vargas for her unwavering stand opposing the Cargill development that will bring 12,000 new houses and over 25,000 new residents to a new city on the San Francisco Bay.

Horsely is a career San Mateo County employee who is retired and already collects his $225,000 Calpers annual pension and is backed by the big unions and the San Mateo County political machine. That approach is yesterday, so over and so done.

Let's do something different this November. Vote for a candidate who understands the future and all its possibilities and challenges. April Vargas for the future.

Well, isn't that special? So many wonderful options.
Whoever wins can watch Supervisor Gordon waddle away with all of his pockets full.
If Horsely is money hungry too, and friendly with the unions, it looks like Vargas is out in the cold as the new homes go up.
No matter what, there is going to be a population explosion and small inexpensive homes will have to be built.....not next to our beloved golden trail.
Who will be running against Gordon in the election for the 21st District assembly seat? What do these jobs pay?
