King dropped out yesterday (Jan. 31) and there are three other challengers - Jay Cabrera, Barry Chang, and Kris Wang.
I hope someone beats Simitian.
I agree with Henry. Anyone is better than Old Joe.
Rather then having a contest for "there ought to be a law", he should make one that says "what laws should be removed".
I will not be voting for Smitian. I generally agree with his positions, but I don't like career politicians. They should go back to private life and let someone else have a chance.
In his "There ought to be a law" competition, Simitian also asks people for laws that should be taken off the books -- and I think several have been over the years.
Career politicians like Joe are bought and paid for by developers, business and unions.
No one represents the taxpaying middle class.
Now Mountain View has a new apartment developer on the scene, Prometheus, and has political "friends" that will be beholden to its contributions.
Democracy is dead
