Sierra College Trustee Candidate Howard Rudd has been using his connections developed over years in business and years of goodwill created to gain critical mass.

This blogger has been contacted by two local elected officials who have endorsed Howard Rudd.

Rudd was at the Rocklin Chamber of Commerce Breakfast and was well received. Rudd told this blogger that the response to his candidacy has been “excellent”. He went on to indicate that he has operations going in Nevada County – an area often overlooked by Sierra College Board candidates.

Rocklin City Council Race Update –

Diana Ruslin’s “Mom’s Army” have been out in force. She is the only candidate who has visited my home. According to Ruslin, her people have been walking the “high-propensity” areas of Rocklin for two weeks.

Ruslin and Janda were also in attendance at this morning’s meeting of the Rocklin Chamber of Commerce.

Greg Janda is looking like a confident candidate with his talking points down cold. He is speaking with authority.

Janda and Ruslin offer contrasts in their presentation. It remains to be seen if the Community servant / Mom (Ruslin) or the confident businessman (Janda) will sell better.

Heck, they could both win and that would leave Mayor Scott Yuill out after one term.

(and don’t forget Mark Klang is on the ballot too)

Roseville City Council Candidate Sam Cannon is ramping up his campaign. to the surprise of many – being trapped in the capitol for this years’ legislative shenanigans has not cost Sam Cannon much. So much for the concerns over Cannon being “MIA”.

The general feeling on the street is that the race is between Sam Cannon and Tim Herman for seat number two. (Everyone believes that Susan Rohan will be elected mayor in a runaway)

This means that the fireworks could fly between the Cannon and Herman camp.

What about David Larson? He flunked his Dale Carnegie courses and his attempts to downplay his marriage to Brad have backfired. His Marriage is a hot topic of discussion in Sun City. The Dem Central Committee has endorsed him – but are doing precious little to help him.

Here are the issues – Tim Herman will point out his superior resume and Sam Cannon will point out that Tim Herman is a Liberal. ’nuff said.

Roseville Joint Union High School District Race – Both Linda M Park and Scott Huber have racked up impressive endorsement lists. Both will begin their campaign operations this weekend with volunteers walking precincts.

Expect to see lawn signs popping up all over the place.

Linda scored a major coup when her long time friend – Gina Garbolino endorsed her. On the heels of DA Scott Owens and Assessor Kristen Spears… Assemblymembers Ted Gaines and Dan Logue give Linda credibility and diversity in her support base.

The SD-01 Race is abuzz in this area. Everyone in insider circles is talking about it. Most in Placer are supporting Ted Gaines.

AD-05 Update: The SEIU just spent $75K on an IE to prop up Richard Pan. If you see Richard Pan in person, you’ll understand why the SEIU likes him… he can’t finish a sentence.

  1. Most in Placer are supporting Ted Gaines? Kinda like Ted says he gave “most” of his Per Diem money to charity.
