This is a bit lengthy, but worth it…
Let’s start with the biggest, and perhaps least exciting, races for the county (state races to follow tomorrow). In the 50th Dem Primary Francine Busby was selected as the Democrat nominee to lose to Brian Bilbray once more. I don’t think Busby was celebrating her victory, I searched for police reports and couldn’t find any so I guess she called it an early night.
A few days ago I raised some questions about interesting ballot titles and over the past few days I have received some answers, some more hysterical than others.
It looks like I do have my answer about Toni Atkins being a “small businesswoman”. She backs up her claim by listing herself as a Senior Principle at LeSar Development Consultants. My questions now become did she take a salary for this while on the City Council and if so does she list it in her economic interests as influencing her votes on the City Council? Is she a registered lobbyist with the City now? Did she exchange votes on the Council for a position? We’ll just have to wait and see…

It was the population putting pressure on government in the Woman’s Suffrage Movement, Civil Rights struggles, and the Anti-War Movement that brought about change. It is the American Way; it is the way of self-governed people.
