Original post made on Aug 2, 2009

The race to replace U.S. Rep. Ellen Tauscher in the 10th Congressional District is heavily under way, with the special election Sept. 1 barely a month away. Fourteen candidates are vying to represent the district, which spreads from Dixon in the north, to El Cerrito in the east, down to Alamo, then loops around to take in Livermore.

Good Luck to the 10th District ....
Here in the 11th District we have a Congressman (McNerney) that has had the same message on his website about upcoming events for some time:

District Events
As your representative in Congress, it's important to me to hear about what's on your mind and any questions or concerns you may have. Please check back soon for upcoming events.

We want to meet with him & talk about some of the issues he is considering, including health care changes. NOTHING SCHEDULED.

Send them E-Mails for information or schedule and never hear back. Where is McNerney hiding?

We hope the 10th District is more open and accessible.

The real winner of this race will be Gerry Mander. This means that the real losers will be the voting public.
