We’re going to more-than-occasionally update readers on the 97th Assembly race. Obviously there’s a special interest on my part as I live in the district, but given the personalities involved I also think the race could be pretty entertaining to watch. Besides, if the Democrats make this race competitive, then we’ll know the Assembly Republicans […]

Fox Head takes on Roger Danielsen’s defense of the school board’s pension investment scheme. Danielsen, of course, is the disgraced former schoolboard member who was forced to resign before he was recalled who is now seeking the Democratic nomination for assembly in the 97th Assembly District.
