  •  Second this. Come to Coachella and Palm Springs (5+ / 0-)

    I was part of the 2006 campaign for Roth.  IIRC, the guy who leaked the email would likely have lost his/her job at the station if the campaign had run with it, and the consensus at the time was that Coachella already knew that Mary Bono held everyone east of Indian Wells in contempt.  I wanted the Palm Desert/Rancho Mirage folks to know what she was really like, it could have been the Meg Whitman-throws-housekeeper-under the bus moment for Mary.  But if it had to wait, how lovely that it works out well for Dr. Ruiz.

    The City of Coachella is a model for progressives, Eddie Garcia, the young mayor elected in 2006, has been reelected twice now with overwhelming margins - his campaign slogan was "Getting the Job Done."   The local paper just endorsed his reelection.   Manuel Perez was elected to the CA Assembly in 2008, and he's been diligently and effectively bringing green jobs and overdue constituent services to the Coachella and Imperial Valleys.  

    They (and now Dr. Raul Ruiz) are the best known of Coachella's stellar group of young leaders whose UFW farmworker parents sent them to college, and who returned home to enter public service, and who kick ass on a daily basis.    We, the people of Coachella, Indio, and Duroville (the trailer park she tried to shift the focus to - which by the way, Ruiz and Perez and Garcia have actually worked to help, unlike Bono-Mack) work harder in one day then Ms. Bono Mack does in a month.  

    I'm union staff, but not a spokesperson for my union - all posts represent my views solely.
