I have never openly divulged my preference for an incumbent or candidate prior to an election. But this year I’ve decided to do just that. Reason being: Recently when conversations came up I have been told by some people that they wait for recommendations from some propaganda fliers and some newspapers.

As voting is a privilege and not a right, I firmly believe voters should take the time and trouble to find out for themselves which individual is right for the job and which one isn’t.

Same with propositions: Read and then decide which is right and which is wrong. If you can’t decide or don’t know, leave that space blank. A good example is to listen to the untruths the unions spew all morning on a.m. 580 radio opposing proposition 32.

My choices in this November election are:

President, Mitt Romney; U.S. senator, Elizabeth Emken; U.S. representative, Brian Whelan; state assemblyman, Rico Oller; county supervisor, Rick Farinelli.

Proposition 30, no; Prop. 31. Yes; Prop. 32, yes; prop. 33, yes; Prop. 34, no; Prop. 35, yes; Prop. 36, no; Prop 37, no; Prop 38, no; Prop 39, no; Prop 40, could go either way as long as they do it in the best interests of the people and not a particular party.
