By now, voters are well accustomed to messages telling them to vote yes or no on a variety of issues -- Proposition 2, Proposition 4, Proposition 8, Proposition 10, etc.
But when they elect a representative, their choice isn't yes or no, but between two individuals.
You wouldn't know that by reading the mailers sent out in recent days by the California Democratic Party in Ventura County's 37th Assembly District. The pieces rip into Republican Assemblywoman Audra Strickland -- the most recent one focusing on her votes against raising the minumum wage -- and conclude with a curious message: "Vote No on Audra Strickland on Election Day."
Nowhere is there a mention of Democrat Ferial Masry.
If one didn't know better, one might think these mailers are intended just as much to tarnish the Senate candidacy of her husband, Tony, as they are to promote Masry's election.
