The supes are supposed to be nonpartisan. Not around here.
In the latest example of bald political partisanship, Republican Deborah Wilder — who has been active as a GOP state and local officer for a long, long time— is running for District 1 Supervisor. “The State of the State of the California GOP” was one of her speeches. You get the point.
The Union — often criticized as a mouthpiece for the right — got to break the news of this dyed-in-the-wool partisan running for the nonpartisan seat. “Wilder has been a labor and employment attorney representing management for more than 30 years. She was formerly the mayor of Foster City, was previously the secretary of the California Republican Party and is currently California Republican Party North Region vice chair,” it dutifully reported.
At some point, it would good to hear what makes Deborah qualified for the post of being a supe in a rural area within the blue state of California. (And that requires building —not burning — bridges with Sacramento).
Along with District 1, Districts 2 and 5 will also be up for grabs in the March 2020 elections.
