Thanks to the Pleasanton Weekly (PW) for reminding everyone of the importance of voting in the current Primary Election. I would encourage every reader to vote immediately and drop off your ballot at approved locations. I would recommend the PW publish an article with the locations of the ballot drop-off locations. I would also encourage every voter to read the Voter Information Guide published by Alameda County and sent to all voters. If you have not yet received it or your ballot, you may want to register to vote immediately. Website to register: Web Link Finally, I draw your attention to the Candidate Statements in the Voter Guide right after the Sample Ballot. Only two candidates published a Candidate Statement. These statements cost the candidate over $13k to submit. None of the other candidates chose to publish a statement and let you know a bit about themselves. Even the incumbent, whose salary we are paying and who has hundreds of thousands of $ in his campaign fund, did not publish a statement. I believe we should all view this as a sign of his disrespect to the voters in our district. Without making this a campaign speech for any specific candidate or mentioning any candidate by name, I would recommend only considering one of the two candidates who chose to publish a statement for us, the voters, in the Alameda County Voter Information Guide.
