I write this note to share my enthusiasm for the election of Rick Farinelli for Madera County Supervisor of District No. 3.

My family has grown up with Rick and has always known him as an extremely hard-working, dependable professional, and a dedicated family person and concerned citizen. His aim is to improve the representation of the citizens of District 3 in the County of Madera. 

He wants to assure that Madera County’s direction reflects the needs of its citizens and not the whims of the certain special interests or the progressive big government proponents. He wants to minimize the massive “foot-print” of intrusive government and provide effective services, and only the ones that are truly needed by the local citizens. 

This also includes keeping the costs in line, when so many other government units are going bankrupt.

He is the only candidate running for any open seat in Madera County as a supervisor that is being recommended and endorsed by the Taxpayers Association of Central California, Congressman Tom McClintock, and Charlie Waters, PHD Veterans Affairs Activist, and many other prominent leaders (Please go to: 

We need to take advantage of his conservative perspective and make sure Madera County does not get swept up in the progressive movement.

He is aggressively fighting the so-called “bullet train” or what is promoted as a “High Speed Rail.” He is also aggressively fighting the YARTS and the new Water District issues, too.

He knows that all of these boondoggles are a payoff to governmental unions by certain politicians, while all of these future problems are funded by the hard-working middle class taxpaying citizens of California and our Madera County. Rick is concerned that the UN’s progressive Agenda 21 is seductive in its appeal and will be presented in many forms both nationally and locally, and he will be quick to sound the alarm so all of Madera County citizens are aware of its effect and are able to help fight it before it spreads into Madera County.

Rick is extremely concerned with the gang problems in Madera County, and is constantly working with community efforts to reduce the impact on the community by working with and also learning from cities like Richmond and counties like Contra Costa to greatly improve Madera County’s gang intervention.

Please give Rick a strong look, Madera is lucky to have this dedicated conservative community activist and we need him representing us as the District 3 supervisor of Madera County.
