    I would like to than Chris for providing the entire list of what not to vote for. Knowing what years of Democratic control has done for California it is good to know what will cause us more problems than we already have.

    Democrats love the ones that say fund or funding…..

    Stop the crazy spending and vote anything else…..

      yeah right, those bush years were fabulous. what people need to do is scrutinize every issue and candidate and vote independently of any party recommendations. for example, 33 sounds like it benefits almost everyone, but ask yourself why an insurance company would spend that much money to help save you money. it makes no sense. same with 37, monsanto doesn’t care whether a prop is poorly written or illogical. they’re afraid that if people have the facts, they will lose customers.

    on the topic of school board and who to vote for…why would you support Cyril Yu? on what grounds? Lauren Brooks and Paul Bokota would be the candidates of choice. Having been involved in the schools as a volunteer, on PTA, and as a parent, I have seen how strong Paul and Lauren are in their knowledge of what works and what doe not in IUSD. They are the only ones who are educated in the way of Sacramento, will keep our schools fiscally responsible and will ensure that what is best for our children will be maintained. It is also important to understand that yes, it is wonderful that the City of Irvine support of our schools, the City should not be involved in any way in the running of the district.
    Paul Bokota, Lauren Brooks and Mike Parham have no other “political”agenda. They are there heart and soul for our children and are the strongest candidates running!
