Today I got a call from Assembly speaker John Pérez’ campaign. He’s running for State Controller and wants my vote for the Democratic endorsement.
My plan, at this point, is to vote to endorse Betty Yee. Yee is currently a member of the State Board of Equalization. I have heard her speak and she’s definitely a budget wonk. She’s had a number of budget-related jobs in the past, and she strikes me as someone who is careful and by the book. Still, I don’t know her very well.
Speaker Perez, OTOH, strikes me mostly as a political animal for what should really be a non-political job.
Still, I was elected to represent all Democrats in AD 18 to the Democratic Party and I’d like to hear from you whom you’d like me to vote to endorse and why. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, tweet me at @SanLeandroTalk or comment on my Facebook page.
