Now that Joe Baca Sr. is going to be out of a job, someone suggested to me he would be a great replacement for Josie Gonzales. I don’t even know if he lives in the Fifth District or not since the congressional districts cover multiple areas.
I am not a Baca fan but I would take some semblance of intelligence over the babbling village idiot we have now. Certainly, he would be an effective supervisor even if us Reps. disagree with him. It’s not like the Fifth District will ever elect a Rep again, so might as well go with a known entity.
The problem is that Gonzales still has four years left. So that means a recall. If I am reading the rules correctly (and I am not going to guarantee that), it would take 14,900 valid signatures (meaning in reality 20-25,000) to start a recall.
You simply cannot depend on volunteers. Cost of paid signature gatherers would likely be in the $4 per signature area.
Anyway, food for thought.
PS: Ditto on Rutherford/Dutton. Of course, I have my own choice for the second district, but I’m not sure he will go along. Dutton needs a job and would make a much better supervisor than Rutherford.This entry was posted in Local Government and tagged Janice Rutherford, Josie Gonzales by Administrator
