"Is he now proposing that the people elect someone less qualified because the most qualified candidates accept union endorsements or money?"

No, I will vote for the best qualified candidates and hopefully, as part of being best qualified, they will be smart enough to eschew union support. The 2 candidates I voted for in the Atherton election were not smart enough to reject the APOA support and they are now paying a big price for that support.

I know the other thread is flooded with messages from the half dozen PC fans, but I'm a "no".

I will look closely at the other candidates, and choose among them.

I'm taking a pass on this candidate as well.
