      who is in control of the Ballot box??? How do we know there is nothing fishy there??? All it is, is a volunteer with a key until it gets to the county... no one should have the key to unlock it...

        On absentee ballots from Calaveras county. They had an advisory with the ballot but left out a major political party, the Republican party. There was peace and freedom party with their candidates, and the greens party with candidates, but no Republican party. Even had the democratic party. I wont say voter fraud, but anyone who was on sure who to vote for were in the blind on any of the
        Republican party candidates.

      Did you just move here or did you just start paying attention?The new jail project was started while Downum was in office. Kuntz inherited it. With that said, Downum did the right thing as the old jail was severely undersized and antiquated.

      The new Jail was built with a bond that was approved by the voters. The Sheriff wasn't in office at the time.

      Hopefully he'll have his staff fill it up with all the local tweaker scum. Then all the day time drunks and perpetually stoned heads can walk the streets and drive intoxicated without the threat of being assaulted and mugged.

              I understand the dislike of Downum and Walker....but what did Busby do? I think that the fact that a sergeant, someone with a decent amount of time on, left our county's department for another agency speaks volumes.

                    The County didn't want another crooked Sheriff from Oakland. In other words a carpetbagger.

                      Busby was a lousy sgt for Calaveras, and came in dead last on the Lt.test. So he went to Ione to be their cheif. What a bunch of dummies they are over there. I'm glad he's gone. He's a trader another one of Downum's puppets.

                          Busby is a wannabe big shot. He has a bad temper,crappy politician, and is dumber than a box of rocks. He should of been fired years ago for an onduty stupid stunt he pulled. But stupid down and Walker saved his butt. Now he is their hip pocket. We all glad he is gone he's Ione's problem now. Thank our Lucky stars.

                            I agree that Borean split the vote. Not sure why he would decide to run KNOWING he would pull votes away from Micheal O. He comes in late, then slits votes. Like many of us up here, we like Borean but feel this was his ego making him run, not the love of the county, or the willingness to make it a better place.
                            If he truly believed he was helping, he would have sat down with Michael O, and decided who would drop out to rid of us Meritta.
                            Fact is, she knows how to schmooz the rich, retired, and ultra liberal voters.
                            Without Boreans debacle, she would have lost.
                            Michael O has the momentum and hopefully we pull it off.
                            Its not about left or right, its just the fact that someone needs to pull this county out of the toilet, and merritta has not even come close to doing it, or even seems to care about trying.

                              Mike O had more signs, but honestly, thats it. Once the public saw his antics and how quickly he jumps to conclusions without knowing all sides of the debate. He has become a joke to many in District 3.

                                  Mike B and Garrahan were together that's what cost him the race. Mike took side with a carpetbagger. When he realized the carpetbagger was dragging him down he dumped the moron but it was too late.. Mike B should of stood alone from the beginning and he would of been fine. When you hang with Downum's pupetts you will loose. Hey Downum that make candidate number four you backed that lost. Sure way to loose a election get Downum behind you. Hey prune face Downum go underground where you belong.

                                    Mike Borean local man, with a plan.
                                    Except he isn't local, and he has no plan.
                                    Speaking with him you get that pretty much right off the bat.
