Keeps you running

A Wigderson Library & Pub 97th Assembly District Update:

Perhaps Ruth Page Jones is not as organizationally ready as previously thought. Only 237 signatures, one of them Mayor Larry Nelson's. Her nomination signatures were almost low enough to get her petitions challenged. She better hope her teacher supporters are not all on extended summer vacations.

Incumbent Bill Kramer turned in the maximum number needed. Not surprising since he is already knocking on doors at a faster pace than two years ago.

Also interesting is attorney Steve Schmuki's intention to seek public financing for his campaign.

Campaign finance reports are due 7/21. Should be interesting.

Meanwhile, independent Thomas Russ will not be on the ballot, as predicted.
