State Rep. Chuck DeVore has thrown his hate into the ring for the 70th assembly district. He made the announcement at the CRP meeting, er SNAFU, this week. Chuck was the group’s legislator of the year on a record of Hemp reform and an withdrawn proposal to build more Nukes (what are the standards for this award gentlemen of the CRP?).
Chuck was rumored to be a candidate for the State Senate, but is instead going to run for this third term and will be termed out unless Prop 93 passes. I have seen no public statements from the Assemblyman on Prop 93, which does not include resdistricting reform, because he’d likely hold his assembly seat for the Maximum allowable time if it passes.
A reminder to those who gave to Chuck’s campaign last time around; he spent very limit of your contributions on his own race choosing instead to fund other political campaigns. It’s legal and its also up for you to decide whether or not its right. Frankly, if I’m writing a check to a candidate and he spends in on another campaign I might not agree with, why write the check in the first place?
