If you have a Primary on Tuesday, VOTE!

We were going over elections materials together in anticipation of voting Tuesday. He rolls his eyes at one or two of mine, I roll my eyes at one or two of his and we both fervently wish Jerry Brown, who’s going to win anyway, would drop the crazy-talk high-speed train that will do nothing but broadside a few stray cattle. Oh, and they hope to run it across the designated bike paths to about a dozen schools in our city about $99 billion from now.

But that judge who, in court, asked a criminal defendant for his phone number and a date?  Who assessed a $40,000 fine on a construction laborer for letting his worker’s comp insurance lapse? Whom the local bar association declared unfit? Out out out.

Amidst the prose and the impossible be-all-things-to-all-voters attempts, now that California has no gerrymandering and open primaries (YES!!!), the state Voter’s Guide shared the official statement of one Republican: “Most qualified for Controller.” The end.

Well, THAT settles it! Of course! Who else could we possibly have imagined?

Muttering puns about controllerfreaks…

Our school bond issue, which has failed twice by exactly 2 TWO votes, passed by the exact number needed. Shame on those who forgot what their parents and grandparents sacrificed so we could have a school in our little town and more shame to those who did not vote.

Early! And often! (We did last month!)

DH was the first one to vote at our polling place. He had to certify that the boxes were empty! (I followed 45 minutes later – after I’d showered.)

Indeed. As you have heard before, Occoquan reminds me to vote.
