Go Paul Fong!!!
Dominic outshined everyone at that debate Monday evening, his fresh ideas and ability to get things done is why we need him in Sacramento. Dominic will bring a fresh voice to Mountain View in our state's capitol.
Dominic Caserta is the candidate who has activel reached out to residents in Mtn. View. He has had 7 coffee chats in our community, that responsive leadership is what we deserve in Mountain View. I am enthusiastically supporting Dominic Caserta, he is a Democrat for Silicon Valley.
Paul Fong is the strongest candidate of them all. His experience and leadership at the state level will be far more superior than Dominic, Kris, or Anna. We need an official that can made things happen in Sacramento, and Paul Fong is just that guy! Go Paul Fong!!
Can't beat 35 years of dedicated community service. Paul Fong's got this one.
35 years?? What is Dominic Caserta's age? He looks young. Does this mean Mr. Fong has been active in this community longer than some of the canidates have been alive? Mr. Fong seems to be the most qualified candidate for the job.
I've been to one of the debates and seen them all in action. It's obvious that Dominic Caserta is the most qualified of all four candidates. He mentioned what he has already accomplished in his city and what his goals are for the district. It's unfortunate that all the other candidates can only agree with Caserta's ideas. Fong mentioned that he has been involved for 30+ years but failed time and time again to mention exactly what he's accomplished during that time. We need someone who will get the job done and Dominic Caserta is BY FAR the best qualified. Attend a debate and see for yourself!
I was at the debate. The is one clear choice in this race, one candidate who has a record of progressive leadership and a vision that truly reflects Silicon Valley at the core, and that candidate is Dominic Caserta.
Sincerity and trustworthiness trumps slick talk and charisma anyday.
Thus, mu support of Paul.
I'm glad that Mr. Caserta is spreading his energies and attention in other communities for awhile. He is one of the reasons why Santa Clara is being run into the ground and we sure could use the break from him. I shudder to think of the damage he could do if he gets more power.
I wasn't impressed with any of the choices, but was least trusting of him. Please VOTE, but I encourage you to vote for anyone except him.
Dominic Caserta: a whiff of corruption, or at least a lack of common sense (see Herhold's article about him in the Merc).
Paul Fong: about as articulate as George W. Bush (yes, I was at the debate). Plus, do we really need another candidate that everyone in the establishment loves?
What a choice...
Anna Song is the one candidate who has both strong electoral experience and the freedom not to owe allegiance to any group of high-value donors. She stood up for justice at the Santa Clara County Board of Education and demonstrates the most consistent integrity of all the candidates.
Vote Anna Song for Assembly. We'll get good government, a focus on families and consistent Democratic values.
I'm not sure which one I'm going to vote for yet, but feel pretty certain it won't be someone who is a former Republican.
I think Kris Wang is easily the most qualified. If you look at her resume, it includes service on Parks & Recreation, VTA, and education committees, and not to mention her stint as Councilmember and Mayor. She also has experience as an computer engineer and entrepreneur which I think best defines the Silicon Valley.
But Kris Wang really separates herself from the pack because of her integrity. I cannot say the same about Caserta or Fong.
It is unfortunate Kris was unable to attend, but the statement read was absolutely correct - "Kris is a true public servant with no ties to special interests." I am voting for Kris.
Caserta is someone that has shown his constituents that his vote is for sale. He has burned the citizens in Santa Clara many times and continues to do so. Vote for ANYONE but Caserta. He is bad politics. Visit: www.NotCaserta.org to see the many reasons why he is a BAD choice.
I've watched Anna Song serve on the County Board of Education and she is a leader who blends support for teachers and parents with accountability and innovation. What you see with Anna is what you get. No hidden agendas.
We're voting to send a representative to Sacramento who can get things accomplished. By oneself, a single Assemblymember has little influence and even less authority. But, in partnership with the rest of the Legislature, one can make progress.
I'm voting for Anna Song since she is approachable. She demonstrates the most important skill needed to build coalitions across the state.
I agree with all the comments concerning the debates: Dominic has run circles around the other candidates with his knowledge of the issues and vision for what he would do about them. And unlike everyone else in the race, his time on the Santa Clara City Council shows a clear record of solid service. He is the obvious choice for State Assembly.
Now I am overrun with multiple pieces of junk mail with people endorsing him (and he endorsing himself) every bloody day. I'm glad he supports green causes - my recycle bin overruneth.
