As the 2012 election is getting closer I am aware that the campaign for District 3 supervisor is all the more important. The person elected will be responsible to make decisions that will affect the entire county government. I have paid attention to both candidates during this important campaign and I believe there is a clear choice on the candidate who is presenting a positive plan for the future of Madera County.
Rick Farinelli, has clearly outlined his plans to reduce government influence, reduce spending and provide for the safety of our citizens. He has stressed his past experience as a Madera businessman and has involved himself in efforts to reduce crime and Rick has a plan to open the doors of the county government, reduce business fees, and curb impact fees and taxes in order to attract new jobs, which we so badly need. Rick additionally, has been working with local law enforcement and community agencies to reduce gang activity that is becoming a serious problem to our community. I note that he does this as a concerned citizen.
Mr. Svanda on the other hand has presented no such plan. I have waited patiently for him to publish some sort of information on how he will work to reduce the unemployment rate, crime rate, and gang activity. I see only campaign advertisements with pictures of established city dignitaries who support the status quo. If Mr. Svanda has a plan I would like to see it.
This election is of such importance to our community, and the persons we elect will drive our economy for the next four years. The citizens of District 3 have a clear choice in the position of County Supervisor. Rick Farinelli is a man of action who is the only candidate with a viable plan to serve the citizens of Madera County. Please vote for Rick on Election Day.
