Another illegal immigrant and criminal, democrats love.

Hey good people, here's a story you don't see here.
It's about our illegal immigrant problem. Some people say it's not a problem and
let them stay in our country, others say illegals don't obey our laws
and to obey the laws of the country you want to come to.

"An undocumented Mexican, who pleaded guilty to the murder of two policemen, was sentenced to death by a California court in the western United States on Tuesday, a sentence he received with a smile." .....A smile? These two Sacramento police officers were murdered, and he smiles. All of you who support sanctuary status in this state, in America, have a little hand in these murders. Maybe you should support the wives and children of these officers with a monthly donation for taking part and approving sanctuary for criminals who you want to live here among us.

    Placer County officers actually.
    Illegal is illegal, that's the problem, democrats don't mind criminals, they look in the mirror, they see one looking back

      Supervisor Clapp has stayed the course and should be retained. He is a man of principles.

        Clapper only spoke of his investments and living off rental income for 30 years. What qualifications represent an interest in being elected? None. He is being sued for elder abuse. He only votes with Mills and has no interest in anything but cannabis so he can lease his properties and make a profit

        He is a man completely without principals other than feathering his own nest. Stay the course, you really need to get more prose, reveals your anonymity every time, matey.

Public Speaking
Posted on: 2018-04-26 08:42:20   By: Anonymous
All want the job that requires a large amount of public speaking. None, have basic public speaking skills. It is a struggle to listen to them when just about every sentence is full of uhh/umm/and.

All in county government who speak before the public need to be required to take a public speaking class. The very poor communication skills can be seen at every board of supervisors meeting. This reflects upon each and everyone of us living here.

Rankings for the interview:
1. Stopper
2. Clapp
3. Guidici
4. Gustafson

Stopper was well versed in all the subjects discussed and seemed confident that he could lead his district and this county with or without cannabis

Clapp laid out the achievements of the current board and made a case that they would be able to finish the general plan very soon, but some of his answers didn't have facts to back them up

Guidici was well prepared and showed his expertise in financials but seemed very focused on cannabis and used it in every answer when there are definitely more issues at hand

Gustafson just looked unprepared and was far too vague with his answers, I really don't know what his stances are after this interview

This should be an interesting primary!

    Amazing that Clapp was elected in the first place. It's obvious that he isn't qualified to make decisions for the rest of us... Complete ignorance to the most basic of government functions and community needs. Unless you are wealthy and want our county to be a retirement community and don't care about the children vote for Clapp.
    Stopper and Guidici seem to be intelligent enough to handle such a demanding position and looks like they will spend the time and actually participate. Time will tell... Anyone would be better than Clapp in my opinion regardless of the cannabis topic everyone is so blinded by. Too bad he's the only anti cannabis candidate... Please people, when voting consider the scope of the job, who is qualified and who will represent us as citizens properly.
