Express endorsements: Experience matters

Original post made on May 19, 2012

As the county deals with pension reform, economic development and budget concerns, the newest supervisor will need to bring innovative solutions, strong priorities and experience to the table. Although two of the three candidates have experience working on boards, committees and commissions, the Danville Express believes Candace Andersen is the right choice for District 2 supervisor.

Danville Express has been running for weeks a large, paid, ad for Candace Andersen. Of course you endorse your paid advertising client. You are hardly a neutral, unbiased source.

Many of my neighbors here in Danville are so upset with Candace Andersen allowing the illegal Magee Ranch development that there is no way we would ever vote for someone who is a pawn of rich developers.

I think the Danville Express is a highly ethical and unbiased publication shimmering with journalistic integrity.

Pawn of rich developers? Show me proof. Cite the location on the web so we can all take a look at it.

Look at March 20,2012, town forum section, re "No on Summerhill Homes", and follow up articles, and can google "No on Summerhill Homes". She spent all her time putting up campaign signs and no time listening to us in Danville affected by illegal development.

It would take only a rudimentary knowledge of semantics to discern that Wise Owl is NOT Mr. Bailey. However, such assessment is obviously beyond the ability of a smattering of people.

And by the way, I'm still waiting for proof that Candace is a Pawn of rich developers.

Good work Express Editorial Board. Well reasoned endorsement. The position of Supervisor is bigger than a single issue. I'll vote for Ms. Anderson.

I just received in the mail from Candace Andersen an extremely negative, hit piece attack on her opponent in this election. The entire mailer slams her opponent, but mentions nothing about Ms. Andersen.

Ms. Andersen must be desperate, to drop to this level of mudslinging. Instead of discussing why we should vote for her,it is full of partisan attacks on her opponent.

Reality is Ms. Andersen is a pawn of the wealthy developers, as witnessed by her support of the illegal development by Summerhill Homes of the Magree Ranch property in Danville.

I do not care that she is a Mormon, do not care that she is anti-choice, and anti-gay marriage. I do care that she abandoned us homeowners near Green Valley Elementary School and Los Cerros Middle School to let the rich developer ruin our neighborhood. She spent all her time putting up campaign signs, and no time trying to help her actual constituents.

If you care about greenspaces, the environment, traffic problems, and stopping the rich developers from paving over our community, do not vote for Candace Andersen.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
