    Here in Amador County I had a choice of two Republicans for State Assembly because of that change. And, prior to the change, we had a Democratic member of the State Assembly. So, I'm not sure I like the top-two business.

      For if there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life. - Albert Camus

      force Richard Pan and Alyson Huber into the same District?  I was happy when both first won office so I'm sorry that they both couldn't stay in office.  Glad to see Andy Pugno lose again even if to a Republican.

        Frank Bigelow verses Rico Oller for state assembly in district 5. I voted for Bigelow and it looks like he won, but it would have been good to have a Democrat on the ballot.

          I had no Republican on my Congressional ballot (well I did but he was pretending to not be a Republican.....long story......) but I did on my Assembly ballot.  He got 16% of the vote I think.
