The June 5 Open Primary Election is coming up quickly. As is my custom, I like to present my personal election picks – with my comments of course. We’ll start with the U.S. Congress:
U.S. Senate – I have never been a fan of Senator Dianne Feinsten, but the GOP has never been able to displace her. I suspect they will fail again this year, but I am going to endorse Elizabeth Emken and hope for the best. I like her focus on cutting government waste. And she is a parent of a child with autism – a subject she speaks about with authority. She is also a UCLA grad which I can appreciate as my oldest son is a freshman at UCLA this year.
39th Congressional District – There is no way I could ever support the useless Ed Royce. Consider how many awful local candidates he has supported over the years – including the three Fullerton City Council Members who are facing a recall. Royce is opposed by D’Marie Mulattieri, who is running with “no party preference.” You may recall that she played a big role in the Orange County Occupy movement, which went nowhere but kudos to her for trying. I do love her campaign slogan, “Socially Progressive, Fiscally Conservative.” I agree! She is my pick for the 39th Congressional District.
