City of Imperial Beach Mayor race is Tied!

Saturday, November 8, 2014
posted by Jerome Stocks

This is a first for me, I don’t remember seeing an actual exactly tied ballot count before, but I’m certain the candidates are glad there’s (despite what the AP says) 74,000 provisional / AB ballots yet to be counted.

Question: What happens if the I.B. Mayoral election results in an actual tie when all is said and done?


Precincts: 11
Counted: 11
Percentage: 100.0%

Vote for: 1


Thank you for your support

After a long and very personal campaign, I am so happy and humbled to have been elected to the District 2 seat on the City Council.

Thank you for your support, and a special thanks to everyone who volunteered and helped out on the campaign. We knew it would be difficult to win in June with four people on the ballot, and each and every one of you helped make last night’s victory possible.

I will miss serving the people of District 6, but I am excited for the new challenges and opportunities of representing the “Beach and Bay” district when I am sworn in this December.


It is time for real voter reform to ensure honest elections

I, along with what I hope is many others, want honest elections. The appearance of fraud and corruption in our voting process make us appear like just a second rate country. Is it just a “pipedream” to want and to demand reform in the voting process?

Why do we as a society, as Americans, allow such deception to occur? We used to pride ourselves on our elections and had the belief the process is part of what makes America great. Aside, of course, from what used to be certain areas of the country — Chicago, New York, Boston — where the local “machine” would ensure victory by almost any means, which was something we would joke about. But it is no longer a joke.


Prayers Do Get Answered!

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

Lots of prayers from all across the country were answered last night with the victory in Mass. of Scott Brown to the Senate.   Prayers that have been lifted for several months during the obamacare debates can now be turned into thanksgiving.

While Brown is not the end-all, be-all of Republicanism, the victory is important and ironic because it was Teddy’s death, leaving the seat that helped put the death-nell on communistic healthcare which was Kennedy’s dream come true.

We don’t know where Brown will fall on all the issues we will face, but this one is a critical point in our nation’s future as a Republic.
