Some people are in a wad because we pointed out that Suzanne Jones is (at least at the time of the writing of this blog) the First Vice-Chair of the Placer GOP.

Kirk Uhler has some friends in the Congressman McClintock staff. They warned us that the “McClintock Haters” and “Uhler Haters” had joined forces and that the democrats were doing some sort of organizing for Suzanne Jones.

It started to become crystal clear when Jones was reading off of a script at the League of Women Voters candidate forum, as if she knew the questions in advance of the event. In that event, she talked about “Carbon Footprints” and “Man Made Climate Change” in addition to using other leftist talking points in her campaign.

So here is the first part of an exchange on Ms. Jones campaign page. Then the second part follows:

Whoopsie.

The problem for anyone on the Placer GOP Central Committee that wants to be upset with Kirk Uhler, is that the above tilt leftward by Ms. Jones was not an isolated incidence. She campaigned on Affordable Housing, Stopping Development and Carbon Footprints. (among other things)

In fact, when we observed ballots at the Placer County Registrar of Voters, Suzanne Jones was winning the samples I saw 70-30 among democrats. She won the very late vote by 12% – suggesting that the move of the Uhler campaign to enlist former Dem Party official Rob Haswell (a long time friend of Uhlers) and former Sheriff Ed Bonner was effective in cutting in to that margin. Based on numbers from the Placer County Registrar -at least 2/3 of the late ballots (turned in on election day or received after election day in the mail) were democrat ballots.

Now contrast Suzanne Jones’ Campaign to this:

 

You never saw Suzanne Jones ever present herself this way. It is because her top supporters are bay area liberals, anti growth liberals and a handful of loudmouths enraged because something they don’t like was built near their Granite Bay Home. One of the worst features of human nature is the I’ve got mine, you can’t have yours mentality. These people were Jones’ campaign – and she met them in 2018 in her ill-fated run for Assembly.

In addition – take a good look at this photo. This is Kirk Uhler’s family. Jones’ campaign people and she herself (Suzanne, people talk and a few people you met with talked to me in graphic detail about what came out of your mouth) attacked Mr. Uhler’s entire family. We will be getting in to everything in graphic detail so that people can understand the character of Suzanne Jones and what they are in for with her as a supervisor.

Note – the Uhler Campaign did not respond to her in-kind during the campaign. We made a strategic decision not to go negative until the very end, and then only to tell Democrat voters she is a “Republican”. As my Republican readers are going to learn – party affiliation is quite negotiable in the world of Ms. Jones.

One of our mail pieces to Republicans. Democrats out-voted Republicans by 4% in Placer County Sup D4 and Suzanne Jones Won Democrats by at least 60% in the final tally, as our observations showed it to be 70-30 two weeks out from election day.

I was Kirk Uhler’s Campaign Manager and this campaign had a lot of similar patterns I had seen in past campaigns. However, there was a key first. Suzanne Jones called the cops on me. (At least that is what the Deputy Sheriff told me) For that, she is going to receive the Beth Gaines treatment from Right on Daily for the life of her tenure as a Placer County Supervisor.

This is the young man that showed up at my house after Suzanne Jones called the Sheriff’s Office

It is also going to be important for people in Placer County Government – who are reading this blog in record numbers to understand who just won election. She is a chameleon and will say anything to get what she thinks she wants.

This is the business card that was left on my door on 2-14-2020. That was my 49th Birthday and apparently Mrs. Jones felt it was a good idea to call the Placer County Sheriff’s Office and accuse me of stealing her signs. (Mind you, about 100 of Kirk’s signs disappeared with no calls to the police)

Also note, someone else called the police on 2-19-2020 on Jones’ behalf in an attempt to abuse the local police for political gain as I had a police blotter forwarded to me.

Well, it turns out that a developer that Suzanne Jones tried to screw out of developing his land was the culprit. Jones and crew illegally placed signs on a few parcels of the man’s land. Then they compounded their actions by calling the cops on your intrepid blogger. Mrs. Jones is going to regret having done that for a variety of reasons.

To Suzanne Jones and/or the campaign staff:

Your campaign signs have been placed without permission on two of my clients’ properties and this email is 24 hour notice to remove those signs or they will be removed for you. These two properties are located in Granite Bay:

South side of Douglas at Seeno (1 large sign)

NW corner of East Roseville Parkway and Barton Road (3 small signs)

Additionally, at least 1 sign has been placed in the median at Golf Club Drive and East Roseville Parkway. These are unsafe and I understand that they are also in conflict with Placer County campaign rules. I removed one of these already, but it was replaced the following day, presumably by one of your volunteers.

Thank you in advance for your prompt attention to this.

Note: Suzanne Jones ignored this email. Mr. Cook picked up the signs himself – leading to Suzanne Jones calling the cops on both myself and Mr. Cook.

Mr. Cook is going to have worse problems than Suzanne Jones violating his private property rights. He is going to have a MAC full of NIMBY’s and enviro nut democrats, appointed by Suzanne Jones. Oh wait, you didn’t know that Suzanne Jones’ top supporters were leftist liberal democrats? You thought she was he first vice chair of the Placer GOP? While the second statement is true, so is the first. And, wait until you see what she campaigned on and what issues mattered to her…

Buckle Up as there is a lot to unpack as we tell the story of the 8 time candidate Suzanne Jones who was in the right place at the right time finally.

With the dust settled on last night’s Placer GOP Meeting, allow your intrepid blogger to lay out some facts and tell some of the back story behind Thomas N Hudson’s attempted lynching of Kirk Uhler last night.

Tami Uhler is Kirk’s wife. One of the more disgusting attacks from the classless pseudo-conservative Suzanne Jones and the crazed deluded Thomas N Hudson has been surrounding Tami’s employment. Tami Uhler is an assistant DA for Placer County. She prosecutes White Collar Crime and has some others that she supervises. This is who Hudson and Jones are attacking. Note: both Jones and Hudson are attorneys, perhaps they are jealous of the fact that Mrs. Uhler actually makes a real impact in her law practice. Note that the recent pay raise was given to all employees in that department and the vote was 4-0. Why was it 4-0? Because Kirk did not vote on it. Those facts were avoided by Mr. Hudson and Mrs. Jones.

Their dishonesty alone should disqualify both of them from further service on the Placer GOP Central Committee, but wait there’s more from their nearly 10 minutes of base personal attacks on the character of Uhler in their coordinated, clearly pre-planned stunt they pulled last night. I will continue after we go through just the facts…

Here’s the recap on the Tour-de-Uhler vs Suzanne Jones.

Kirk Uhler’s record:

Stopped numerous proposed county fee increases – including dump fees and car assessments
Pro-Growth Vote
Pro-Law Enforcement Vote
Helped get CA-65 Improvements Funded
Has been addressing homelessness for a decade or more
Has dealt with shortages during the recession and maintained solvency for the county
Opposed runaway spending, built strong reserve
Lone vote against Sanctuary State at board of supervisors
Recruited Bonnie Gore to run for Supervisor against Jack Duran
Led Fight Against 27% Pioneer Energy Rate Increase, getting it slashed by more than half
Provided material aid and support to the Informed Parents of Rocklin

Kirk Uhler also raised money used to take out Rene Aguilera, David Larson and Jack Duran from local office – three activist liberal democrats

And the Tour-De-Suzanne:

2008 – Ran for Congress (Then CA-01) Against McClintock and Ose, finishing 3rd ahead of only Theodore Terbolizard in the GOP Primary (Lost)
2010 – Ran for Assembly (AD-05) Against Andy Pugno in the GOP Primary. (Lost)
2010 – Elected to Placer County Office of Education
2012 – only regular election in last 12 years Suzanne Jones was not on the ballot
2014 – Re-Elected to Placer County Office of Education (briefly ran for US Senate earlier in the year)
2016 – Ran for AD-06 against Kevin Kiley and Bill Halldin (Lost)
2018 – Re-Elected to Placer County Office of Education
2020 – Running against Kirk Uhler for Supervisor

Bonus: 2017 – applied for vacancy on San Juan Water Board. Does this count as another lost election?

While Suzanne Jones has spent over a decade shopping various offices, Kirk Uhler has been making a difference in Placer County.

Everyone in Local Government will verify that Kirk Uhler was the prime mover behind Bonnie Gore challenging Jack Duran. He helped her raise a ton of money as well as raising the money I spent attacking Jack Duran in 2018.

Thomas N Hudson’s divorce has been going on for 7 years. This is my opinion based on What I know of the situation and because I believe Thomas N Hudson is truly insane. The only thing that matters to him is trying to keep Carlene, his soon to be ex from getting half of the marital estate. He appears to be making more and more filings specifically to delay the court process until he bankrupts Carlene and her family in an attempt to “win”. I do believe that the only thing Hudson likes more than the Box Wine in his refrigerator is money. What a sad, empty life.

That was on display last night as I sat through what I believed to be some pretty raw hatred.

Having had my wife attacked several times by political cowards because they know they can’t get to me – seeing Thomas N Hudson accuse Uhler and the County of Placer of Sleaze and Corruption was rather pointed. Having watched Thomas N Hudson spiral in to alcoholic delusion in the last 7-10 years and having been there at one point in my life made watching the flame out last night a stark reminder of what I left behind more than 17 years ago. I feel very little sympathy for Thomas N Hudson’s life because he knows better than to live and behave like he is behaving.

Kirk had nothing to do with his wife’s job. He has had nothing to do with her pay raise (she’s only gotten one in the last ten years by the way).

Hudson also brought up the machinations of a campaign for assembly from 24 years ago. That campaign was so long ago that I still lived in Scottsdale Arizona when it happened. I was not even a registered voter then as well. That’s correct, Hudson was venting a grudge from a generation ago and at that – his recollection of the events was grossly inaccurate.

He brought up some internal CRA fights from 2015 and invoked the name of a former member of the Cent Com and former candidate for Roseville City Council in an outright lie over the course of events.

The only two things Hudson was semi-accurate about was the full time supervisor initiative and the Measure E 1/2-cent Transportation Sales Tax. Again, however Hudson’s paranoid fantasies of conspiracies overtook the handful of legitimate criticisms one may have of the two items.

Suzanne Jones for her measure must have been quite rattled after I spoke. (I spoke for a few minutes on Kirk’s behalf after Hudson’s 10 minute character attack) I did not need to bring notes with me like Hudson and Jones did. I spoke off the cuff about everything I remembered that Kirk has done in recent years (see the above list). It must have been devastating because Suzanne Jones’ response was to read two anonymous emails that were sent to Mark Wright the chairman of the placer GOP.

Apparently the authors of the emails did not exist in the voter registration database – but Suzanne Jones seemed to know who they both were. She identified two well-known anti-growth NIMBY groups that they were affiliated with. Apparently, they could not handle being dressed down for their BANANA or NIMBY – based stupidity and decided a semi-anonymous attack would assuage their bruised egos.

All Suzanne Jones did was look like a jerk by reading the letters.

She is the sitting 1st Vice Chair of the Placer GOP and should be resign from that position. She could not even get her own committee to endorse her campaign. If you are the second in command of a group and you can’t gain the trust and confidence of that group for a run for office that’s the ballgame.

As one member put it to me, she is not a conservative, does not inspire and said nothing about why to vote for her.

It is clear that Hudson and Jones orchestrated a sneak attack and took advantage of Mark Wright by violating parliamentary procedure and decorum in what they did last night.

Thomas N Hudson solicited a motion to Reconsider. It needed 2/3 to pass. It barely got 1/3. Kirk Uhler was basically endorsed a second time after the vile smears of Thomas N Hudson.

If any of you want to know what Hudson’s ex-Wife is going through – multiply last night by the 15ish years they were married and together and the 7 years of the divorce being dragged out.

I was proud to defend my friend and political ally of many years Kirk Uhler. Anyone reading this blog – especially people on the Placer GOP Cent Com should really evaluate what you saw last night and ask yourself if you can trust Thomas N Hudson as parliamentarian or Suzanne Jones as First Vice Chair. (Let alone Jones anywhere near office)

Here’s the recap on the Tour-de-Uhler vs Suzanne Jones.

Kirk Uhler’s record:

Has been addressing homelessness for a decade or more
Has dealt with shortages during the recession and maintained solvency for the county

Kirk Uhler also raised money used to take out Rene Aguilera, David Larson and Jack Duran from local office – three activist liberal democrats

Apparently, Suzanne Jones does not like this sort of leadership from Kirk Uhler

Here’s the Tour-De-Suzanne:

2008 – Ran for Congress (Then CA-01) Against McClintock and Ose, finishing 3rd ahead of only Theodore Terbolizard in the GOP Primary (Lost)
2010 – Ran for Assembly (AD-05) Against Andy Pugno in the GOP Primary. (Lost)

2016 – Ran for AD-06 against Kevin Kiley and Bill Halldin (Lost)
2018 – Re-Elected to Placer County Office of Education
2020 – Running against Kirk Uhler for Supervisor

Bonus: 2017 – applied for vacancy on San Juan Water Board.

While Suzanne Jones has spent over a decade shopping various offices, Kirk Uhler has been making a difference in Placer County.

Everyone in Local Government will verify that Kirk Uhler was the prime mover behind Bonnie Gore challenging Jack Duran. He helped her raise a ton of money as well.

It seems nonsensical that Suzanne Jones would challenge Kirk Uhler unless she wants to usher in a dem majority on the board of supervisors.

During the 2016 Assembly campaign I observed that Suzanne Jones would change her stripes to suit her audience if she believed it would help her get votes. Perhaps this is why her in lieu petitions for her current effort were circulated by some of the most notorious anti-growth democrats in Granite Bay. Perhaps this is also why she was happy to do an event with Viktor Behket and several local democrat activists.

Note: all four donors showing publicly are democrats

Just note – Suzanne Jones told Dennis Revell she was going to resign as First Vice Chair of the Placer GOP if he was ousted as Chairman, yet here she still is. Can you rely on her to be true to anything she says? It is a fair question and one I have asked watching her run for damn near anything she can file for in the 12 years she has been politically active.

Some people I know are upset that Kirk Uhler endorsed Jim Holmes – who also endorsed Kirk. The record of Uhler is unassailable. So, let’s tell a Kirk and Jim Story.

Did you know that when the final, fateful vote was to occur on Pioneer Energy’s proposed massive rate hike came down the pipe – Jim Holmes called Kirk Uhler to ask him how he was supposed to vote on the issue. With Holmes opposing the 27% rate hike, that ended the debate forever. It is because of Uhler’s relationship with his colleague that this happened. Would Suzanne Jones be able to pull this off?

Placer County has seen far less of a homeless problem than surrounding counties – Kirk Uhler’s leadership on the issue, empowering law enforcement and making sure there is extra homeless shelter space are in part the reasons why.

Placer County has lower crime than most surrounding counties – It is because of a well-managed County budget enabling solid numbers of Sheriff Deputies this has happened.

Placer County is one of few counties in California that would not be in fiscal jeopardy if there was a recession. Why? Kirk Uhler’s leadership on matters of budget and spending.

Suzanne Jones has run for major office 3 times and lost. Yet for some reason she is taking issue with Mr. Uhler’s record as a supervisor and his leadership in dealing with democrats in local office.

She has been making base personal attacks against Mr. Uhler and against his wife. Between her repeated failure, cavorting with liberal democrats and her lack of character demonstrated by bringing a candidate’s family in to the field of fire, she has proven she does not deserve serious consideration.

If you’re a resident of Placer County’s 4th Supervisory District and you like where you live and your quality of life, you value integrity in leadership and you value leadership period your choice is Kirk Uhler.

To be continued…

I’ve been called crazy. I’ve been called a squish. But in 2016, I got called a racist on Fox 40 by Viktor Bekhet who went berserk over a website I made about him. I was helping Kirk Uhler get re-elected (Kirk smashed Bekhet by 20% in 2016). The TV story, if it is still up, is hysterically funny as the soundbites that Fox 40 used from me just made Bekhet sound like a moron.

When Viktor – a democrat turned DTS when he moved from the Bay Area to Granite Bay just three years earlier – was running for Supervisor against Kirk Uhler, Suzanne Jones (running for Assembly… again) and Viktor were walking each other’s stuff. I saw it with my own eyes as I was working for Bill Halldin’s Assembly campaign and keeping a watchful eye on Kirk’s re-election.

I’ve still never figured out what her assembly campaign slogan meant.

Mik Mikaluco – one of the most bizarre and entertaining candidates ever

Some people on the Placer GOP Cent Com were trying to defeat Kirk Uhler, even though Kirk was the endorsed candidate of the Placer Cent Com.  I think several of them did not know Kirk and may well have been following Tom Hudson and Suzanne Jones’ lead. Deborah Jackson and Ken Campbell, both former officers in the Placer GOP, actually showed up as a donor to Viktor Bekhet against the Republican Kirk Uhler, writing checks to Bekhet while sitting members of the Placer GOP.

I worked for pay for Bill Halldin in 2016 and again in 2018 when I helped elect him to Rocklin Council. Halldin in 2010 was an opponent to the Placer CRA, siding with the electeds and the moderates in Cent Com disagreements. Over time, however after getting to know the players and situations, he changed his positions on a lot of the internal party stuff. We also became good friends as well. When he told me he was going to run for Assembly, I did not care who else was running. I also donated $1000 of the pay I was getting from his Assembly campaign back to his campaign. Uhler also gave Halldin a large check despite, having opposition from his own party for his re-election.

Suzanne was part of the chorus of candidates attacking Mr. Halldin because it was believed that Halldin was performing well despite the presence of Kiley, Pugno, Hanley, Jones, Cristi Nelson (where the hell is she now?), Mik, Nutty Bo and two Democrats in the race. It is my opinion that in her desperation to gain traction, Suzanne Jones aligned herself with all of the Granite Bay NIMBY Uhler-haters supporting Viktor Bekhet. I saw little presence from Jones outside of Granite Bay.

Similar to 2012, Charles Munger and Crew poured $2 Million in to attacking Andy Pugno 9(!) times in the mail. Even so, Pugno barely missed the runoff against Kevin Kiley. All totaled, based on my research, Luis Buhler directed over $3 Million of Charles Munger’s money in to attacking the author of Proposition 8. While $250K of Munger’s money went towards Bill Halldin, Bay Area liberals poured over $1Million in to Kevin Kiley, including a furious $400K rampage in the last 10 days of the election.

That fall, Kirk Uhler and I would work on a major project in Placer County using separate PACS. We were not coordinated as we had separate PACs, but Kirk sent the Placer CIR (that I had become President of) $40K+ and we used the money to target 4 Democrats for elimination:

RJUHSD Trustee Rene Aggielairuh
RCSD Trustee Gary Miller
RUSD Trustee Camille Maben
RCSD Candidate and Planning Commissioner David Larson

We smoked Rene Aggielairuh, running him off the RJUHSD Board. Gary Johnson, Julie Hirota and Paige Stauss won. Andrew Tagg, who got endorsed by the Placer CRA and GOP, would ultimately get appointed to fill my mother’s vacancy months later as my family moved back to Reno, where my brother and I had been born.

We smoked David Larson so bad that he left the County.

Maben, who was used to being the top vote-getter, was re-elected only because the third place finisher was a first time candidate with no help. Someone (I suspect Wendy Lang) filed an FPPC Complaint against the Placer CIR PAC over the mailer, and almost four years later it is still ongoing.  Rumor has it Newsom has ordered the FPPC to retaliate against anyone that took money from the charter schools (the Placer CIR took $4400 from them in 2016).

Gary Miller was re-elected because our friend Doyle Radford put “Labor Organizer” (or something similar) as his ballot title. DOH! Radford is a Construction Worker and Supervisor whose shop is Unionized.

Put that in perspective – while several GOP Cent Comm members, led by Suzanne Jones,  were helping a non-Republican attempt to unseat Kirk Uhler, Uhler was laying the foundation to take out several bad Democrats from local office, as I had no idea he’d give the Placer CIR PAC $40K+ to use.

The result? The RCSD is a 3-2 Republican Board, the RJUHSD is a 4-1 Republican Board which just voted along those same party lines to renew the charter of the John Adams Academy. I also believe 100% that the money that the Placer CIR spent is why Andrew Tagg was appointed and then re-elected without opposition in 2018.

Those of you that are part of the Informed Parents of Rocklin take a look at this: The money that Kirk raised and then gave to the Placer CIR PAC was used to produce this mailer as well:

When you think of the informed parents of Rocklin – remember that Kirk Uhler gave the Placer CIR the money that we used to nuke Camille Maben. Without Kirk Uhler donating to the Placer CIR PAC, we would have not taken out the two dems and shone light on Camille Maben.

P.S. Kirk Uhler supported Ted Cruz before honoring the will of the GOP Primary voters and supporting candidate Trump.

Then there is the small matter of 2018, as Kirk Uhler would continue to assert himself as a political leader in Placer County.
