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.

You can’t predict tomorrow – especially if the Unions and their whores in the media come out fangs bared to stop a referendum.

Here are the final Districts in Placer:

SD04 – LaMalfa has Roseville and Western Placer.

SD01 – Ted Gaines is moving and has the rest of Placer all the way up to Siskiyou, Modoc, Shasta. Ted Gaines wins, get over it – even if the unions, RINO’s et. al. come after Gaines.

AD06 – Beth Gaines has Roseville, Granite Bay, Lincoln, Rocklin, Penryn, Loomis, Orangevale, Fair Oaks, Folsom, El Dorado Hills and Cameron Park.

Beth Gaines is in serious debt from her recent race – there is some question with the new districts if the “third house” is going to give much to Republicans since it seems that soon they will be completely irrelevant in state government. Will Beth draw a Republican Opponent in this +20 district?

AD05 – this is the State-Level District that will breed the fireworks in Placer. First off – this district has Newcastle and Auburn in it from Placer. It has ElDorado minus Cameron Park and El Dorado Hills + all of Amador, Calaveras, Alpine, Mono, Toulumne, Mariposa and Madera Counties in it.

The rumored candidates as I understand them are El Dorado County Supervisor Ray Nutting, Auburn City Councilmeber Kevin Hanley and Madera County Supervisor Frank Bigelow.

I know Nutting and Hanley well – I do not know Bigelow at all.

AD-01 – Dan Logue has moved in to Nevada County. This is his race to lose. The RINO’s and the Labor Unions are rumored to be looking over some Shasta County liberals like Stan Statham (who is now a DTS) to run against Logue.

CD-04 – with a recent Bee article, this district that takes in 90% of Placer and stretches down the foothills to rural Fresno County is McClintock Country – but the Bee stated emphatically that Dan Lungren could move in to the district and take on McClintock.

If that happens – it will be Ose V. McClintock on steroids. I predict that should Lungren run against McClintock, it will be national news all the way to the wire.

CD-01 – Herger. This takes in roughly 10% of Placer and goes all the way to Siskiyou. Herger wins.

Situation Normal.

Susan Rohan won Big – she almost doubled second-place finisher Tim Herman. David Larson is the big loser as he was telling local Media he was going to overtake Sam Cannon for third place. Didn’t happen.

There was one huge upsetting of election night results. Vic Markey was beating Miguel Ucovich by 27 votes, after certification, Ucovich won by 3 votes.

Eric Teed-Bose thrashed left-wing moonbat Andy Sheehy by 950+ votes in the final talley. Sheehy spent $8500 vs. Teed-Bose. Considering that Teed-Bose won with 5790 Votes, 900 votes is a whuppin. (I guess Andy’s people should have destroyed more signs)

The Reverend Karen England got 1302 votes for Lt Governor vs the 4K plus she got for Central Committee – an Assembly Campaign is born.

The rest of the upsets held – Suzanne Jones won by nearly 900 votes, the two tea party candidates in Lincoln increased their margins and George Romonsky prevailed by nearly 900 votes over his opponent.

Click here to see the carnage.

Today is the day that McCauley and his crew are supposed to run the outstanding ballots – this according to several sources.

I don’t think any of the results will change – but Ben Mavy ended up beating Otis Wollan on the final count. (Wollan led on election night and when the final talley was made – Mavy won by 55 votes)

Stay Tuned.

The elections office indicated that the counting is done, but will not be certified until later this week. The numbers will be posted then.

Eric Teed-Bose finished First by a healthy margin in the Eureka USD. Despite the Labor Unions getting Sheehy elected. Jerri Davis – who the Placer Dems threw under the bus is going to be inclined to work with the 3 Republicans on the board now.

Kelli Gnile beat Howard Rudd in Placer County – her election night margin is 761 votes or 3%. Howard Rudd is winning over the entire district.
Cari Dawson Bartley won going away.

Sierra College now has a 5-2 rock-solid Conservative Majority.

Placer County Board of Education – Suzanne Jones knocked off Anti Charter-School Incumbent Trevor Sanders. Her election night margin is 711 votes or about 6%.

This one is especially sweet since Lorene Eurele jumped in to the race and was likely the one destroying Suzanne Jones’ signs.

Suzanne gives the Charter School Movement 4 solid votes on the Placer County Board of Education.

Linda M Park and Scott Huber won convincingly on the Roseville Joint Union High School District race.

How sweet it is! Congrats Mom!!!
