Ken Larsen's Endorsements for 2018 Orange County election

 

Ken's advice:

 

Office Vote for Vote against Reason
BoCC District 1

Jamezetta Bedford

   
BoCC District 2 Earl McKee   Voted against light rail.
BoCC at-large seat TBD Barry Jacobs  In April of 2017 Barry voted for light rail (DOLRT).  That's a vote against schools, because DOLRT will eventually have to canabalize the budgets of schools and other programs to pay for it.  DOLRT is an extraordinary waste of money.  [details]

DOLRT is a slap in the face to rural Orange County residents, because they're too far from the route to benefit from it ... yet they'll have to pay for it. [video of one BoCC public commentator]

Thumbs down to Barry Jacobs!

 

BoCC =Board of Orange County Commissioners  

 

The BoCC:

  1. Funds both school districts.

  2. Control all the zoning in the rural areas.

  3. Oversees social services, senior centers, and recycling.

 

The critical election is the primary on May 8, 2018.  We're a heavily Democratic County, and the primary is the Democrat vs Democrat battle.  It decides the winner ... not the November election.
