Haven't we tried Republicans in local and regional offices?
It doesn't work because such Republicans cannot understand that "they work for us and we don't work for them!!"
The failures are many including CCC District 3. What a complete disaster!!
I am quite sure that Guy Houston is moderate, interactive and realistic as a potential candidate. Appointing any Republican party HACK in comparison to a moderate that reaches the same audience as Maria, our State first lady, is an invitation to revolution among our moderate, very human voting majority.

Tauscher and her Democratic allies in this district have consistently represented the Illegal Aliens over us for many years. Unless a Democrat surfaces that renounces this policy, it's time to replace her with a Non-Democrat. We need to start offsetting Pelosi somewhere...

As a result of Vicki's note below, I would suggest a walk along the Iron Horse Trail from Hillgrade to Stone Valley Rd most holiday mornings and meet Ms. Ellen Tauscher as she hold a "walking session" with her staff. You will see just how different this lovely, bright lady is in person.
Hal, as a community courtesy.
