Special Election News! - Legislative and election update for May 20, 2006
May 20th 2006 @ 3:41 pm

The following are excerpts from the state California Federation of Republican Women.

California Population increases in Republican Districts.

This Office of Strategic Information Services reports detail changes in California’s population covering January 1, 2005 to January 1, 2006.

The population growth trends are broken-down by County, City, Region and “Inland California” versus “Coastal California.”

Key Findings: California’s population grew by 443,819 or 1.21% from January 1, 2005 to January 1, 2006 - from 36,728,196 to 37,172,015. Population growth in Republican-held areas (those cities represented by GOP Assembly Members) outpaced population growth in Democrat-held areas (those cities represented by Democrat Assembly Members).

Inland California’s population grew faster than Coastal California’s. Inland California’s population growth rate was twice the rate for Coastal California: 1.70% compared to 0.78%.

Victory for Marriage

This past week, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in Orange County, California, dismissed a case brought by two men challenging the states Defense of Marriage Act (Prop 22). This is a huge victory for marriage and a major loss for proponents of same-sex marriage! ”
Ever since same-sex marriage was legalized in Massachusetts, homosexual activists in California have been shopping for judges who are sympathetic to their cause,” said Karen England of Capitol Resource Institute. “These efforts are designed to undermine Prop 22, passed overwhelmingly by California voters.”


Some thoughts on the June election.

Click on the following internet address for www.smartvoter.org to obtain information on every candidate. This is put out by the League of Women Voters.

Governor: There are four candidates on the Republican Ballot. Three of them appear to be unknowns.

Lt. Gov. Tony Farmer, a realtor and Tom McClintock, state Senator. The current Lt. Gov. is Cruz Bustamante, a Democrat. This is the person who acts in-lieu of the Governor when the Governor is out of state and the one who would fill the Governors seat in the event it should become vacant for whatever reason.

McClintock is also supporting the Eminent Domain issue on the November ballot.

Secy of State: Bruce McPherson. Currently McPherson is acting Secy. He was formerly in the state legislature. He is from the Santa Cruz area. While in the legislature he was known more as a moderate than a conservative voter on legislation.

Controller: An important position regarding taxation. There are 5 candidates. Two of them, Abel Maldonado and Tony Strickland, are the more well known. Maldonado, from the Santa Maria area just recently won election to the state Senate where one of his first votes aided the Democrat position.

Strickland is known for his adherence to the conservative voting position.

Treasurer: Keith Richman, M.D. currently a state legislator is known for his ability to work with moderate Democrats, especially our own Joe Canciamilla,(D) of Antioch. Richman votes with the Democrats on health care issues.

Claude Parrish has been on the Board of Equalization since 1999 representing the areas around San Diego. He has a good record of service to his constituents.

Insurance Commissioner: Steve Poizner. His is the only name listed. He has been strongly endorsed by the states California Republican Assembly, I believe.

US Senator:

Dick Mountjoy, a loyal and staunch proponent of the Republican Platform, is the lone, brave opponent of Sen. Dianne Feinstein. A strong showing of votes for Mountjoy will create anxiety in the Feinstein camp. Feinsteins campaign site proudly proclaims her to be an “independent voice for California.”
US House of Representatives - 10th District

For the 10th District: Darcy Lynn, lone opponent to incumbent Ellen Tauscher. Endorsed by the local California Republican Assembly.

State Assembly.Contra Costa County - 11th District

For the Eleventh District. Antioch resident Arne Simonsen, also endorsed by the local CRA. Arne has been a great opponent of the aggressive attempts to take over land and supports efforts to limit eminent domain attempts.

State Superintendent of Schools.

This position is currently held by Jack OConnell, (D), of Sta Barbara who is running for reelection. There are 5 Candidates. Diane Lenning is also endorsed by the CRA but is, in my estimation, a weak candidate who, when appearing before the local CRA spoke more of her accomplishments in getting more Republicans on committees than she did of her goals for education.

I am leaving out any comments about the Judgeships since there is no information available.


4th District: Kris Hunt, (R). Kris meets 9 out of 10 of the requirements for a fiscally and morally conservative Candidate. She comes up short in the area of supporting/opposing abortion. Hers is the usual claim that since it is the aw - Roe v WAde - she must support it since she believes in supporting and honoring the law. She is open to discussion.

Her opponent, Susan Bonilla, Mayor of Concord, is decidedly pro abortion, pro union, pro health care. Kris would better represent the position of a conservative republican in her dealings at the county level.


PROP 81. This is a state bond issue for libraries. Most Republicans suggest a “NO” vote on such issues since libraries are mostly local issues and not state concerns. Todays Contra Costa Times 5/20/06 carries a letter to the editor by Ken Hamrick stating the issue very clearly.

PROP 82. This is a tax increase to cover costs of providing preschool for all children age 4 and over. A “NO” vote is urged on this Proposition.

Take away God, all respect for civil laws, all regard for even the most necessary institutions disappears; justice is scouted; the very liberty that belongs to the law of nature is trodden underfoot; and men go so far as to destroy the very structure of the family, which is the first and firmest foundation of the social structure.
