If dedication, integrity and experience are important in your choice for State Assembly, choose Paul Fong. There is a reason why Paul has been endorsed by outgoing Assembly member Sally Lieber, the CA Democratic Party, the Sierra Club, California Federation of Teachers, SEIU, Congress members Honda, Lofgren, and Eshoo and our State Lieutenant Governor John Garamendi, the Mayors of Mountain View, Cupertino, Saratoga, Sunnyvale and Palo Alto. This is only the beginning of a very long list of public and private endorsements. Choose Paul Fong, a lifelong Democrat for District 22 State Assembly.

Actions, not words. That is, you should go by the past actions of the candidates, not what they say. Remember all the good things that *Republican* George W. Bush said before he was elected in 2000 and how much BS it all turned out to be? Don't elect a former Bush supporter to represent Mountain View.

The Voice decided not to interview any of the candidates, but Anna Song posts a lot of policy specifics on her website www.annasong.org.
As for the editorial, I'm very disappointed the Voice provides no insight into the top priorities of either Song or Wang. I presume they both submitted questionnaires as well as Caserta and Fong. How about posting all candidates' actual answers to your questionnaire for the public to read? It's distressing that you provide no substantive comments about the female candidates, both of whom are elected (are re-elected) public officials? C'mon Voice! If Anna Song and Kris Wang submitted questionnaire responses that were substantive, then share that. If their questionnaires provided nothing of interest, then step up and say that too
To say nothing about two of the candidates insults them and your readers and casts a nasty shadow on the Voice's integrity.
