State Assembly Member Scott Wilk is holding this event in Simi Valley:

What would you like to see him answer?

He recently helped to organize the California Republican Assembly in Simi Valley. I believe that makes him much more conservative than State Assembly Member Jeff Gorell. What do you think?

I respect candidates that are willing to appear together and discuss the differences in their beliefs. I am glad that Scott Wilk (R) and Edward Headington (D) did this event.

Is there a plan for them to debate in Simi Valley?

Surprise Straw Poll Results

( Video of Scott Wilk speaking to Ventura County Republicans. Ventura County Republicans support Scott Wilk.)


The Santa Clarita Republican Assembly, a conservative grassroots group, held a straw poll for the new 38th Assembly District.

Republican Scott Wilk easily won the poll with the most votes. But what surprised me is that Democrat Edward Headington won 2nd place!


Edward Headington = 57 votes
Patricia McKeon = 5 votes
Paul Strickland = 21 votes
Scott Wilk = 266 votes

Seems Patricia Scott is highly unpopular with grassroots activists. I wonder if the money Buck McKeon raises for her will overcome the antipathy from her own party.

Congratulations Edward McKeon and Scott Wilk.

Ending The Current Tenure System Could Happen

The Los Angeles Times has released an internal document of the items being negotiated between Republicans and Democrats in Sacramento.

Here is the section on education:

Which Republicans locally are in negotiations?


State Assembly Member Jeff Gorell has been deployed to war and State Senator Tony Strickland has clearly stated he isn't interested in any negotiations that put the tax extensions on the ballot. I received a robocall asking me to contact State Assembly Member Cameron Smyth recently.

This is an impressive list of reforms. I don't accept the argument that some Republicans, like George Runner, are promoting that their party shouldn't be open to negotiations. The reform to teacher tenure alone would be huge.

I'm not the most partisan blogger. I want Republicans to negotiate for some of the items on the list including limiting pension spiking and reforming education. What good ideas did you find in the document?

Take down that sign Carole Lutness Edition

Just by looking at the background can you identify where in Simi Valley this photo was taken?

After each political season there is always a few signs that stay up for months that are overlooked by the campaigns when they are cleaning up. This time all of the campaigns did a pretty good job of picking up their signs in Simi Valley. But what about in your neighborhood?

This sign is in Simi Valley. If Carole Lutness gives me permission I will go take it down myself.

If you see any signs that remain up, email me and I will post them.
