Singling out 1 in 77

The California Club for Growth, a new independent expenditure committee headed by Ventura County Assemblyman Tony Strickland has targeted Democratic incumbent Assemblywoman Nicole Parra of Bakersfield for defeat. It has sent out a number of mailings that attack Parra for her support of measures it characterizes as tax increases.

One vote cited in the mailers is Parra's support for AB 1266, a measure related to the 2003 budget that made a number of cuts in education spending. Among the cuts were a reduction in the number of guaranteed state grants that pay college expenses for would-be teachers who agree to teach after they graduate in schools lacking credentialed teachers. Also included was a partial suspension of college grants given to high school students who score highly on the state's standardized tests. Because of these previsions, the mailers describe the bill as one that raises taxes on college students.

That bill was approved by the Assembly on 77-3 vote. Among those also voting in favor was Strickland.

for some reason, i thought it was illegal for candidates or sitting legislators to control or contribute to an IE committee.

Silly Omar,

Oh how cute, you think you know how to read campaign finance reports. Well, if you took a second to look at the report you would clearly see that Audra Strickland gave money to the party. She is so confident in her election that she is helping others.

Let me know if you need help reading the election returns on Tuesday.

You haven't heard of PSYOPS have you? hee hee.....

Now Joel is denying the racist mailers and phone calls being sent out...cute...they are cowards as well. You give Republicans a bad name

I believe Open Internet site Explorer is amazing (and I just have the cost-free edition - am attempting to create some funds being in a position to afford the upgrade). It always shows links that Yahoo website explorer does not, that is really beneficial (Yahoo after all just isn't Google but we are all unhealthily dependent on their device).I wish you the greatest of luck. I do think your future is in offering excellent resources that others don't have.

Over the last 25 presidential elections, Ventura County voters have backed the winner 24 times, or over 95 percent of the time. It is one of only a handful of counties in the nation that has been such a predictable bellwether.
