Please note it is pronounced ME-Shell.

Michelle Vass is this race’s mystery candidate and appears to have filed to be “the only girl” in the race, based on accounts related to me. It is a fairly well-known fact that there are a segment of voters that refuse to vote for any male where there is a female on the ballot. (Unless the female has 99% name ID and 70% of the voters think she is a crook) In 2012, a lone female candidate got 7,000 votes for Rocklin City Council despite doing nothing.

I had made mention earlier that Michelle lives in an apartment and was queried by a commenter about why that is an issue. By itself, it may not be a disqualifier even though all of her opponents have a mortgage.

What makes it more of an issue is when you realize that Michelle only finished college last year and her most recent job was working as an intern for a politician in Sacramento.

Currently, Vass is apparently semi or unemployed and is campaigning full time.

Now it becomes clearer that Michelle is just getting started in life and the apartment thing may well be an indicator of a lack of life experience and thus a lack of credentials to serve on the Rocklin City Council.

A further investigation of Michelle shows that she was President of the Lompoc Association of Realtors. Sources there tell me that Vass was able to obtain that position in her 20’s largely because her mother was an icon in the local business community. This is not unheard of and may not necessarily be a bad thing except…

… her tenure was marred by scandal. The Lompoc Association of Realtors had an embezzlement problem and part of it happened on the watch of Michelle Vass. Ouch.

Now we have multiple issues suggesting that Vass lacks the experience or history needed to be an effective Rocklin City Councilmember.

Police recommended that financial safeguards be put in place to protect the group/s membership dues, but that was never done, said association President Michele Vass.

Soon the association was being embezzled again.

The assistant to the executive had been promoted and was the new financial caretaker. Within two years, she began stealing money. In January 2007, the association discovered that the nightmare had started again. This time, 145,000 had been embezzled, Vass said.

Why didn’t Vass do what was suggested by law enforcement? Was she too unsure of herself in her position? Was it because of a lack of experience?

How could we expect Vass to assert herself if called upon on the Rocklin City Council? The intertia of City Staff, the local business network and that web of control can be suffocating.

It is clear that the embezzlement that occurred under the watch of Michelle Vass could have been prevented. But, she did nothing.

Now the recent college graduate who lives in an apartment has multiple credibility problems as a candidate for Rocklin City Council as what little public history there is of her is not good at all.

Camille Maben is a liberal democrat.

Camille Maben worked for Delaine Eastin, who was a sworn enemy of school choice, and charter schools.

Camille Maben has been antagonistic to said movements as a member of the Rocklin School Board.

Despite her far-left views, which included supporting AB32, the Bathroom Bill and a host of other insanity – she has enjoyed a ton of political cover in Rocklin.

As a subset of the unfolding drama in the Rocklin City Council Race is a three-way race for two seats on the Rocklin School Board.

We here at Right On Daily have endorsed:

Eric Stevens and Kathy Turner for Rocklin Unified School District Board.

Camille Maben wrote in her 2008 Ballot Statement that she was running for her 5th and final term. She broke that promise, and has now done so twice as she is seeking her 7th(!) term on the Rocklin Unified School District Board.

Don’t take my word for it – have a look at this PDF. Turn to page 19 and read it for yourself.

In addition that statement references working for the governor’s office. Which Governor, you may ask? The recalled and scandal-riddled Gray Davis.

Camille Maben needs to be retired as she seems unable to retire herself, or to keep her promises. The part about her extreme left-wing views on Common Core, Charter Schools, Bathroom Bills and the like and the complete buffet of deplorables that are the Camille Maben experience.

Thomas N Hudson sent out an email a few weeks ago referring to Courage Worldwide as a “Bogus Charity”. He lied. Don’t hold your breath waiting for a retraction to be issued to the estimated 1000 people he BCC’ed on the email he sent.

In his zeal to “Be Right” he sent out an email celebrating a hit piece written by an overzealous clearly anti-Christian reporter at the Sacramento Bee.

Once the absurdities of the “Issues” brought by idiot bureaucrats (did I mention that Thomas N Hudson is a $166,000 a year employee of the State of CA?) were day-lighted, guess what happened?

Read for yourself:

STATE DISMISSES NUMEROUS CITATIONS AGAINST COURAGE HOUSE

ROCKLIN – Courage Worldwide said today that after the appeal process and a positive programming conference with state officials, the organization is in good standing with state regulators and plans to rehire and train new staff to reopen Courage House immediately.

The state has dismissed three program citations and the organization has appealed the remaining ones, noting the state’s prior approval of all Courage House programs and policies.

The organization is pleased to announce they will resume accepting girls after staff is rehired and trained, since state officials agreed cell phones can be dangerous to the residents and staff at Courage House. Courage House policies can now deny the use of cell phones and other equipment dangerous to the girls and/or their recovery on a case-by-case basis.

The Courage Worldwide Board of Directors said:

“The population we serve is extremely unique and often existing state regulations regarding the care of minor children do not take into consideration their complex trauma and past association with criminals and the dangerous world of human trafficking.

“We are gratified that the state has granted a number of our appeals and has agreed cell phones pose a real danger to the girls in our care since they link these vulnerable children back to the people who trafficked them. The cell phone is the preferred mechanism of the trafficker to market and sell under-age girls on the internet. Our organization will continue to challenge and appeal any regulations we feel endanger the children we serve or the staff who serve them.

“We are excited to resume serving girls later this year after we rehire and train appropriate staff. All of our fundraising efforts will be focused on recruiting, hiring and training qualified staff. The state agreed that our pause on accepting new residents was wise in light of new licensing that will allow Courage House to now function as a Short Term Residential Treatment Program (STRTP) instead of a Group Home. ”

The organization, which operates 24-hour residential homes in Tanzania and Northern California as well as an extensive program to educate communities about sex trafficking issues, decided to temporarily close its Northern California site in mid-June as it worked to meet new California licensing requirements, hire staff who meet the new requirements while appealing program citations cited by the state that the organization felt endanger residents and staff.

The Northern California 52 acre property currently has beds for 6 girls with a campus plan to build ten cottages for a total of 60 residents. Currently, Courage Worldwide has completed 85% of the county permitting process to begin construction on the first cottage by year end. The Tanzania home is currently serving 6 girls, with a capacity to serve 12. Courage Worldwide anticipates both homes being at capacity by year end since they have had over 350 requests for placement since opening. Courage House Northern California and Tanzania have been fully operational for 5 years, opening in 2011 for girls age 11 to 17, providing round-the-clock treatment services 365 days a year. Its program has received national recognition and to date over 65 girls have called Courage House home.

Though Courage House Nor Cal paused its residential operations for several months, the organization has been fully operational continuing its extensive education, advocacy and outreach programs as well as support for former residents of its home here in the Sacramento region.

I won’t hold my breath waiting for an apology from Thomas N Hudson. He is of a class of political operatives that live in a relative world and his alleged conservative values are but a thinly veneered resume used to make money. Hudson desperately needed to be right as Courage received money from the Placer CRA when it was dissolved. Hudson re-formed a shell in order to assuage his bruised ego and saw the opportunity for a cheap shot as validation.

In the mean time – a fine upstanding Charity, unique in its’ mission was smeared by the Sacramento Bee, using disgruntled former employees and the CRA’s Pol-Pot Bellied Information Minister as delivery vehicles.

Courage Worldwide is not his only recent victim – Hudson wrote a series of deceptive and misleading ballot arguments against a host of measures, regardless of their merits or otherwise. There is no moral inhibition once he thinks he is right on what he does and he got Ken Campbell, Deborah Jackson and others to sign onto his deceptions. Special.

What a headline you may exclaim.

5711841For those of you with short memories, allow your intrepid blogger to remind you about Kevin “Tropical Depression” Hanley. (“Hurricane” Hanley is what he called himself in the AD06 campaign.) Kevin Hanley was deign to tell people that the Chamber of Commerce he was the CEO of was in fact, Auburn.

Auburn is not in AD06. Kevin Hanley had to pull a Gaines and move to run in AD06.

During the ill-fated campaign that saw Mr. Hanley blow through $130k+ of his own money despite having the fundraising machine of Congressman Tom McClintock behind him, he was the glorious crusader for truth and justice against funding much-needed transportation improvements.

This great evil is now known as Measure M. Measure M has been necessitated by the inaction of so many in partisan office as well as the priorities of Sacramento which are welfare payoffs to voters. Don’t bother the Tropical Depression with the facts of life in California.

Enter the CRA’s Pol-Pot Bellied Information Minister Thomas N Hudson. Hudson apparently does not want Baseline Road widened in front of his lair. As I have written before, the information minister likely has a shrine to money in his living room and anything that takes a dime (in this case about $60 a year) from his shrine is apostasy.

In order to save said $60 a year, Hudson fired up the crane and hoisted himself in to his car to attend the 7:30 AM meeting of the Auburn Chamber’s Government Relations Committee. On or about 9/8/2016 Hudson and Hanley argued in vain against the truth of the need in Placer County.

I am sure Thomas N. Hudson spent an extra $15 on gas getting to the chamber meeting as the Prius was won by his soon-to-be ex-wife at the Casino is with her. So I am sure he drove one of his bought-at-auction 20 year old clunkers. (But, I am sure he is trying to steal the Prius from her in his divorce) One should also wonder if Mr. Hudson was able to make it to his taxpayer funded $166,000 a year job in time after the Auburn Chamber set fire to he and the Tropical Depression. (The Capitol Building is an easy hour from Auburn)

For those of you separating the humorous satire of stupidity from the sad reality, you are probably asking yourself why the CEO of a Chamber of Commerce turned himself in to an advocate on a local issue before the Chamber itself acted?

There was a campaign to win and a vainglorious crusade. During the AD06 campaign, a lot of people had their blinders on as did Hanley. The Tropical Depression hired a pro-gay marriage, pro-marijuana legalization, anti capital punishment, soft-on-abortion recently registered Republican as a campaign operative while campaigning as a hard-right Conservative. I’ve also yet to hear about Mr. Hanley offering his support to our nominees Kevin Kiley or Donald Trump for that matter. (ironically, the “hard-right” Hanley supported John Kasich)

Man on FireWill Kevin Hanley resign his position as CEO of the Auburn Chamber? Did he really mean it when he was attacking people for supporting (what is now known as) Measure M? How can he advocate the position of the Auburn Chamber when he took a hostile action and lost unanimously against?

The Tropical Depression can take solace in the fact that the CRA’s Pol-Pot Bellied Information Minister is going to spend his every waking hour (sober or otherwise) trying to keeeeeeeel Measure M. One must avenge the infamy of Measure B.

That is the question everyone should be asking – will Kevin Hanley do the honorable thing and resign his position as CEO of the Auburn Chamber? There is no way anyone can trust him to do his job now that his signature issue has been unanimously endorsed by the Auburn Chamber of Commerce.

Aguilera - you took the Republican DownThey got caught. Perhaps the discovery of this is why Rene Aguilera did not recruit anyone in 2016, in order to save his own tail.

In 2012, Rene Aguilera’s core supporters knew the score, with one bragging – “You took the Republican down!”

The left know there is no such thing as a non-partisan race.

Gary Miller, as documented on this blog, has a long history of far-left activism centered around the fact that he is gay. He also is keen on attempting to spread his brand of cancer to other districts as well as his own.

Rene Aguilera and Gary Miller are known to associate and communicate about said plans to try to take out more Republican officeholders.

Both Aguilera and Miller are aware I have been poking around with Freedom of information act requests. It is also the reason why in my mind that Gary Miller has started the worn out and old He’s a bigot attacks.

Then there is this – an email between Gary Miller and Rene Aguilera which shows their collusion and proof of their attempt to take out Scott Huber (who is LDS) and Linda Park (who is an Evangelical Christian) from the Roseville Joint Union High School District Board in 2014.

Gary Miller Asks, “Can’t we find someone to run against those two right-wing wackos who are running for re-election to your board?”

Whoops. The left knows there is no such thing as a non-partisan office.

It gets better. Because of their solid relationship with the teachers of the district, the teacher’s union endorsed Scott Huber and Linda Park for Re-Election.

As of the date of Miller and Aguilera’s attempt to unseat Huber/Park in 2014, neither Huber nor Park had met Miller. Linda says that she still has not.

Then the next email obtained by your intrepid blogger should be even more disturbing:

(From Gary Miller to Brandon Dell Orto – the President of the Teacher’s Union)

… Scott Huber Gave Money to Prop 8, I have emailed him to see if he has changed his position on this issue.

I am assuming Linda Park is just as homophobic, but I have an email in to her as well…

Then Miller concludes with the following:

The CTA was very strong against Prop 8 and has been very good on Gay Issues, don’t spoil that record by endorsing homophobes.

So there you have it. Gary Miller and Rene Aguilera spreading unity and tolerance in the community.

Why is it that emails and democrats don’t seem to mix very well?
