It had to happen eventually … as though the attractive nuisance of campaign sign litter isn’t enough?

I’m talking about the invasion of your personal space and domestic tranquility by computer generated Robo-Calls for candidates running for office.

For the most part these are from state or county-wide campaign committees. You know, the “Big Dogs” with the fat war chests and shotgun approach.

There it was on our home answering machine when we walked in the door after a wonderful day at the Golden Valley Chamber’s Flatlanders Day Parade.

A personal and skillfully composed digital voice message from our governor’s own appointed interim District 1 supervisor extolling the virtues of his hand-picked replacement.

The interim supervisor’s pledge of candidate support was reminiscent in its sincerity of another pledge he took upon his appointment regarding his sincere and unwavering support of the High Speed Rail scam.

He says in his message that he has chosen to not run for the elected office of Madera County Supervisor. Really?

Ray Krause, candidate
Supervisor, District 1
