Let’s start with Roseville City School Board:
Extreme Left-Wing Activist Liberal Gary Miller survived a challenge, due mostly to Doyle Radford’s ballot title. (He called himself a Labor Union Representative or something similar)
Miller vastly under-performed the winner, Julie Constant. Miller will indeed have another rough election in 2020 as the rightondaily.com blog has elevated him to #1 on our list of South Placer Favorites.
Gary Miller recruited fellow left-winger David Larson to run for another 2-year seat on the same board. Larson in our opinion intended to use that 2 year term as a springboard to run for Roseville City Council. He got shredded by Alisa Fong. The Placer CIR and League of Placer County Taxpayers endorsed Constant and Fong who both won.
If David Larson runs for Roseville City Council in 2018, it won’t end well for him.
Gary Miller is now isolated in the RCSD Board, three Republicans and a Conservative Independent make up that board now.
Roseville Joint Union High School District:
Rene Aggielairuh, the left-wing 2016 Hillary Clinton Delegate to the DNC lost twice on Tuesday. His run in local office has been terminated and the woman who paid his way to the DNC Convention got shellacked 306-232. It has long been our opinion, backed up with evidence that Aguilera is a career welfare recipient who was using local offices to get Health Insurance benefits at all of our expense.
Paige Stauss was re-elected. Although she is a liberal democrat, every conservative on that board respects her and she has been in agreement with them on all the important issues Conservatives care about. Stauss is only the 3rd democrat I have ever voted for in my life.
Julie Hirota finished second. That was an easy one to call, she has a lot of friends and drew the second spot on the ballot. Almost everyone we knew was supporting her. She was also working tirelessly.
Gary T Johnson won outright despite doing little. It is very simple why. When we observed ballots at the county, we saw democrat ballots with votes for Paige, Rene and Gary on them. Johnson drew the last spot on the ballot, which is almost as good as being on top. Most importantly, his ballot designation was Retired Peace Officer – in an election where Hillary Clinton was scapegoating cops and paying for violence at Donald Trump rallies anyone or anything anywhere near Law Enforcement was a winner in this Republican Area.
Gary Johnson will do well as a School Board Member and is a massive upgrade from Rene Aguilera.
Andrew Tagg, a first time candidate who was relatively unknown finished 5th. We are sure that we will hear from him again soon. Tagg also worked very hard, but drew the short straw on the ballot placement.
The author of this blog claims responsibility for the content of the attack mailers that were sent out by the Placer County Impact Republicans against both Aguilera and Miller. People can look forward to seeing more against Mr. Miller in the future – there is a price to pay for being out of touch with the area he live in and for trying to harm a man’s mother.
We are expecting Aguilera to attempt another run for office in 2018. It is 100% certain that he will get hammered again repeatedly until he just goes away.
Roseville City Council:
The Roseville Chamber of Commerce effectively killed the campaign of Tracy Mendonsa (who is now a Planning Commissioner) by refusing to endorse him. They instead endorsed the virulently anti-growth Richard Roccucci. Roccucci lost spectacularly. This marks the first time in a generation no Roccucci will be in office.
The seemingly bizarre choice of the Roseville Chamber of Commerce that appears to have been driven by a fear of Scott Alvord and some other under the surface issues blew up. Their endorsement of a man in contrast to their own stated mission of economic growth was incongruent and played out as such at the ballot box.
Bonnie Gore was elected mayor. No surprise there at all. Like Julie Hirota, everyone likes Bonnie Gore.
John Allard appears to be in 3rd. Either way, he is in as it appears that he did not slide enough for Ozenick to catch him in the final count. Allard’s huge financial advantage over the entire field carried him.
Phil Ozenick finished 4th by a large enough margin to call it. Mr. Ozenick infuriated a lot of people by systematically destroying people’s signs and replacing them with his own and those of Rene Aguilera. It is apparent that Aguilera did it as well. Both men lost their bids for office. It is nice to see that those with poor campaign and personal ethics lost. Like Aguilera, we are sure we have not seen the end of Ozenick until biology does what repeated losses at the ballot box don’t seem to be able to accomplish.

Scott Alvord finished second. He worked his tail off. I saw evidence of him walking precincts in all areas of town. He also did some effective marketing to his fellow democrats, annoying the heck out of some of my Republican friends with targeted marketing that they got by accident!
There was also an independent walk by the labor unions on his behalf that was poorly targeted, ending up on the doorsteps of many local Republicans.
Based on what I know of Scott (and stay tuned as I will be doing a sit-down interview with him and his wife soon), he is a social liberal but a business friendly “fiscally conservative democrat”.
I told Mr. Alvord in person that I was going to vote for him. I am now stating publicly that I did. (Alvord is only the 4th Democrat I have ever voted for in my life) I felt that Alvord was the third candidate for Roseville Council most in-line with my values, and I also keep my promises. Mr Ozenick and Mr Roccucci needed to stay retired in my opinion. I do understand that there will be personal consequences for my decision to support Mr. Alvord, but I hope that anyone upset by that will respect my decision to do so and the reasoning therein. I am outspoken and I lay it out there in an attempt to influence opinion, there is some consequence to that for sure.
I sincerely hope that those that opposed Mr. Alvord will give him a chance to settle in as a Roseville Councilmember. It is possible that the negative things some believe about Mr. Alvord may prove to not be true. This may startle some that know how conservative I am personally to see me write this, but Scott Alvord earned his election to Roseville Council.
