Let’s see – Tim Herman opposed Prop 8, and supported Charlie Brown over Tom McClintock and than issues this gem in the Roseville Press-Tribune Article:
Herman, registered as “decline-to-state,” said the e-mail involves private voting, assumptions and issues that “aren’t important to how one would function as a City Council member.”
Tim Herman is an excellent dentist. My salute to his professional prowess, or my acknowledgment that he is qualified does not extend to how I feel about his stances on issues or how I’d feel about his governance.
I have never met a social liberal who can govern as a fiscal conservative. Tim publicly supported bond issues and sat on the oversight board on another. His public comments at candidate forums never once referenced him supporting city fee reductions or fee eliminations.
This is the choice Roseville needs to make – Susan Rohan and Sam Cannon are unassailable Fiscal Conservatives.
It is also interesting to see how the Press-Tribune spun the content of the ‘offending’ email. It was a straight-forward attack on the Prop 8 issue – it was not a smear, but rather talked about David Larson’s marriage to Brad and Tim Herman’s social liberalism.
The Email that was forwarded to me by the reporter also included how Larson and Herman supported Charlie Brown over Tom McClintock – and I took due note that was not included in the P-T story.
All in all, voters deserve to know about the actions and patterns of people they may be voting for.
Sam Cannon / Susan Rohan – Republicans, Yes on 8, Tom McClintock
Tim Herman / David Larson – Non Republican Liberals, No on 8, Charlie Brown.
That’s pretty simple.
