Doesn't the Irish family also endorse Borean? They were pouring at Mikes meet and greet in Arnold.

      AGREE!! Either one would be better than the ultra-political Callaway who operates corruptly and has for years. We deserve so much better. Only concern is one opposer would not split votes against her, concerned about having two options. People are sick and tired of Callaway, she just keeps taking our tax dollars and padding her purse while this District crumbles. Put her out to pasture!

          I am a Michael Oliveira supporter. He has done more for the local business to try and promote us than anybody has ever done. Thank you Michael for being an important part of our community and promoting the cash mobs as well as serving the public as a Deputy Sheriff.

            Correction, Mr. Oliveira is NOT a Calaveras County Deputy Sheriff.

            Mike's hand and body language told the story, he is emotional and does not understand both sides of a conversation. This is NOT the type of person we need making important decisions effecting our community. Those that cannot create intelligent comments tend to wave their hands and bounce around in order to try to make a point. Anyone with the most common knowledge of sociology/psychology can notice this right away. Sure he has passion, but it is misguided passion.

      Merita will easily win reelection. There are not enough bloggers on the Pine Tree to defeat her. Her base in Forest Meadows and now Murphys will deliver the 50% plus one vote. Merita's challengers will collectively not even get 45% of the vote. Merita is a perfect example of why over 90% of incumbents win reelection. She learned from the best politician in Calaveras County.

        Not this time! If you are from Murphy's. You better take the time to drive through her district! She has destroyed us! All you have to do is drive through her district of 20 years and see what she has done for us! We are very concerned about Murphy's and want to continue to see them thrive! This is the first time Murphy's has had to vote for her! Choose your vote wisely! The only thing she will do is attend events, smile and hug you! Your lucky if she stays for the whole event! But, it looks good! She will not go to battle for you! But, she will pass the buck onto staff and let them take the fall for her decisions!

          As I pour through yet another litany of insulting and rude remarks about candidates, I have to wonder.....is there any fact in any of them. Of course the mud slinging, name calling comments I just pass over, but keep going back to the ONE comment that is fact. Although somewhat long winded, it appears as though ONE of your readers has at least done their homework, and I did a check of fact. YES FINALLY........... Mike Borean although a very nice young man, seems to "HAVE A PLAN" that no one can figure out. Being Local does not ensure good representation for our District so that is a moot point. Merita's EXPERIENCE that counts.....well....I am still not sure what it counts for other than debt, no jobs, and no new business. Michael Oliveira is seen everywhere in this district making a difference with LOCAL business's. He is making himself available to ANYONE who would like to find out just what he is about. He has no fear in speaking one on one about your concerns.........and HE IS spot on with facts, ideas, and his vision for our District. I have been on the fence for months.......I have attended almost EVERY event that these 3 have hosted. MY VOTE will be for Michael Oliveira. HE HAS A PLAN (and is already making a difference with his Cash Mob idea) His experience goes well beyond being a retired cop. Just ask him. You will surely be as impressed as I was. And as his campaign slogan states...........he is in fact "Strengthening Our Communities" and he has not even won the election. When was the last time you actually saw a candidate making good on promises BEFORE THE ELECTION. I believe I have made my point with out any name calling or mud slinging. FACT!!!

                Here's the voting history in District 3: Traditional low turnout in the Primary--advantage Callaway. Older/retired voters who do not want change are a big voting block--advantage Callaway. Incumbents win over 90% of elections--advantage Callaway. Minimal press coverage of pending District 3 elections--advantage Callaway. Merita avoiding "hot button" issues the last four years--advantage Callaway. Both Callaway opponents have only average credentials--advantage Callaway. Do you really think Merita will be challenged this time?????

                  You are right on all counts. Merita has become a Master at dodging important issues and keeping a low profile during re-election times. One can only hope that the voters see through this and look beyond their comfort zones. Please people...........get out and talk to these candidates. Be aware of the issues, and WHO can answer the questions. April 16th is a candidates night in Murphys.........go listen to what they all have to say. And watch how well Merita skates by with minimal input. She is a sly one............ but batting eyelashes and using that sugary sweet smile does NOTHING for our District. Get informed !!!!! Vote smart!

            supervisor in district 2 brought in over $7 million to restore the forest-based economy in West Point area.

            Merita? Approved a cruddy bakery that failed immediately.

            Done.
