Back in 2008, we had a 5 Republican Board of Supervisors in Placer County. By 2012, it was 2.

In 2018, a motion to oppose Sanctuary State died for lack of a second, why did that happen? (note that the local media are celebrating it’s demise)

IN 2010, the Late Rocky Rockholm was up for Re-Election. Jack Duran, a School Board Trustee ran against him and was not found on the campaign trail. Duran in person is combative and was not a good candidate. So, the Democrat operatives running his campaign put him on ice and made the whole campaign about Rocky Rockholm’s taking a plane trip at the cost of $8,000 to return to vote on a project in North Lake Tahoe called the 3-lane hybrid.

They took Highway 28 in North Lake Tahoe and reduced it from a 4 lane expressway with no turn lanes to a 2 lane highway with roundabouts and a center turn lane.

Rockholm lost 100% because people cared more about the Plane Ticket than any other issue.

District 5 Supervisor Bruce Kranz had beaten the far-left Rex Bloomfield in 2004. Kranz went ballistic over the 3 Lane Hybrid Project and a lot of the animosity over that episode carried forward in to 2008. Bloomfield recruited Jennifer Montgomery, herself a Bernie Sanders type of Democrat to run for Supervisor and she won.

In the meantime Jim Holmes, a lifelong Democrat, turned Republican beat Alice Dowdin in 2004 for Supervisor. During 2011. Jim Holmes un-registered as a Republican and went DTS because he was upset with the County Party for consistently opposing Bonds and Parcel Taxes that local government are fond of floating.

So, just like that in 2010, 5 Republicans. In 2013, 2.

Worse, no one opposed Duran for Re-election in 2014. Now, in 2018, Duran was drubbed by 22 points by Bonnie Gore… who will not be sworn in until December 2018.

Holmes has been opposed both times he has run for re-election, but not by anyone serious. In 2016, Montgomery drew no serious opposition as 5 people filed against her.

Robert Weygant is the dean of the Board of Supervisors. He is a moderate / liberal Republican. He knew that the Sanctuary State Resolution did not have 3 votes, so he did not see fit to second Kirk Uhler’s motion to oppose the Sanctuary State. In his mind, there was no upside to taking a position sure to fail.

Robert Weygant is one of the breed of Republicans that Chad Mayes / John Kasich / Arnold are trying to promote. He has been in office since 1994 and on most all county issues has voted with Conservatives.

This leaves us with Kirk Uhler, the son of Lew Uhler, Placer County’s lone Conservative (at least until Bonnie Gore is sworn in) Supervisor.

The sad irony is that several within the Placer GOP’s Central Committee supported a liberal Bay Area transplant against Mr. Uhler in 2016. I’d lay odds they will leave Uhler alone in 2020 and go after Holmes and Montgomery. (One would hope)

Kirk Uhler is the one supervisor pictured without a “hat” on.

It’s Official: Pam Tobin is Owned by the Unions

The headline reads: Pam Tobin will “reduce Worker Furloughs and Increase Staffing in Placer (County)”.

This should be music to local 39’s ears and any other unions that have bought and control the Spendocrat party in California. The budget is out the door all the way.

The big loser here is Jack Duran – the so-called “Moderate” Democrat is outed as being “pro-worker” by Pam Tobin. I guess that $10k from the AFL-CIO really did buy a supervisor (along with the assistance of Ted Gaines).

Read the attached article – it is a doozy and is a very honest look in to the mind of a true liberal, 100% lack of regard for fiscal reality in pursuit of an ideological agenda.

P.S. – Placer County has a surplus because jobs have been left unfilled so that furloughs can be reduced and/or eliminated at the county level all together… So Jennifer Montgomery and her doppleganger Pam Tobin even lie when kissing up to their union masters!

Vote for Mark Wright – His Name is Not Johnson.

Incumbent Jennifer Montgomery is a hypocrite, she is a kool-aid drinking leftie. She has infested Placer’s 5th Sup District for 4 years – she needs to go. (more on that, soon)

Mark Wright decided to step up and run against her when no one else would.

Then, the man who was trying for 3 months to find someone suddenly found someone – Jerry Johnson.

Then another guy, Rich Johnson got in – that a lot of the Auburnites know.

Then at the last minute – Gary Johnson filed for both Central Committee and Supervisor.

Got that?

Mark Wright… makes it easy to remember, doesn’t it?

Rumors are that there is a 4th Candidate.

If I am Jennifer Montgomery, I am not really liking my life very much right now. In fact, I’d be regretting that I was gearing up to take a run at Kirk Uhler.

You see, Monty has a problem – she’s a left-wing nutbag. Who cares if she is a liberal… it is the fact that she abuses people in the way she communicates. Oops.

Secondly, Jennifer Montgomery is an enemy of freedom. I’ll elaborate on that in plenty of detail later.

Third, she is a grandstanding hypocrite.

Mark Wright from the Placer County GOP Central Committee was regarded as “not a serious candidate” by Rob Haswell who arrogantly started calling people telling them to donate to Kirk Uhler’s puppet opponent. Oops.

Now, we have a double-belly-buster – between Montgomery and Haswell there is enough hubris for a debate team.

Apparently Jerry Johnson and Rex Bloomfield don’t like each other very much. Apparently that same hatred has transferred on to Jennifer. I like that.

There is a 4th Candidate – someone else with money. IT basically assures everyone that Jennifer is going to get pounded, which is good for America, but that Jennifer could indeed get smoked out of office – which the Taxpayers of Placer County need, desperately.
