If you are looking for Voter Recommendations from conservatives who research candidates, propositions and measures on the March 3, 2020 ballot they are now available.
At Robyn’s web site there is an Orange County section where Robyn’s recommendations and others like Kathy Dittner’s, Nancy Sandoval’s and my own are linked. And we do not always agree on the candidates or issues! Evidence of that is we are evenly split on the race for the 73rd Assembly District. One thing we all have in common – none of us is paid anything by any candidate, cause or issue group (or any PAC, Super PAC, etc.) for our recommendations.
One thing to note: most of the people who look for and read my voter recommendations, Robyn’s, Kathy’s and/or Nancy’s are conservatives who normally vote Republican. This election is a Presidential Primary and President Donald J. Trump is running for re-election. Given that he is the incumbent and it is highly unlikely he will not be the nominee for this state, it may be tempting for Republicans to sit out this election. This is true whether you support the President or not.
Please do NOT stay home or not vote in this election. Even if you decide to leave the ballot blank for the Presidential race, there are many, many down ballot races that need your vote. Remember the “top two” jungle primary still applies to all other races such as Congress, Assembly, State Senate, local measures, etc. Your vote is needed to help carry good people into other offices. In addition there is a critical race for the Orange County Board of Education going on. There are three seats up and all the have good conservative school choice candidates to vote for (you only get one vote if you live in that area). They are Dr. Ken Williams (running for re-election), Jim Palmer, President of the Orange County Rescue Mission and Tim Shaw.
We also need your vote to vote NO on Proposition 13 which is a state wide bond tax (not the 1978 version) and No on local school bond tax measures like Measure M in the Saddleback Unified School District area and Measures H & I placed on the ballot by Capistrano Unified School District. http://www.nocusdbonds.com http://www.capokidsfirst.com and http://www.facebook.com/noonmeasuremtax/
