I greatly fear what would get done in Sacramento with Mr. Yang in the assembly. the further gutting of our public school systems and a transportation network based on airports and freeways. We need fewer Republicans in Sacramento, not more Republicans.

[Portion deleted. Insulting a poster.] The state had something like a $26B budget shortfall this past year. Where do YOU believe we should get the money for our schools? How about getting rid of some of the bloated administrators that FAR outnumber any admin to teacher ratio versus any of the other 49 states? How about we clamp down on the outrageous pensions of teachers and government workers? Our pension liability is thru the roof! How about taking care of tenure, so that we are not paying outrageous sums to bad employees, or teachers that aren't allowed to teach but are still paid because of the illustrious teacher's union. These are ALL Democratic programs, you guys LOVE your programs! Our problem is a spending problem, and you and your Democratic buddies have ruined this state believing that there are trees somewhere in this state that grow money. For you to accuse the Republican Party of not funding the schools is an outright lie!

I was in a group who spoke out against Rich Gordon while he was supervisor, and whenever he had to appear at a hearing for a particularly controversial topic,he was a "no show". He was very tight with the Bldg.Dept in the areas he covered and was known to appear anywhere that offered a photo op like a ribbon cutting.He was loathed by most of the people who knew him on the areas of the coast because he was suspected of taking bribes and those members who worked in Redwood City and almost every one of his staff handed in inspection reports and one in particular, was seen at a political gathering and was sipping something and saying too much.
Rich Gordon overplays his hand where he and his partner are concerned regarding a two male partnership just to prove how open minded the County is. My father is gay so I do not bear any malice and like all of his friends.
