The primary is coming up -

I am surprised to receive my pamphlet on the June primary so early, but then, I see it is nearing time to apply for absentee ballots and soon we will be voting. I note that Arnold Schwarzenegger is too busy and self-important to write a candidates' statement. Also, he does not accept voluntary spending limits. Imagine the number of commercials with which we will be bombarded. Of course, no Republican is running against him. Why then, won't he accept spending limits? He continues to amaze.

Jackie Speier is running for Lieutenant Governor. Remember when she was shot and left for dead by the People's Temple fanatics in 1978? She pledged herself, then, to public service, and has continued in that form. Good for her! She is an easy vote for me. I definitely will not vote for anyone who does not accept the voluntary spending limits. That is the first weeding, and it goes from there.

Jerry Brown is running for attorney general. I do not find a candidate's statement for him, and he,also, will not accept voluntary spending limits. Hmmmmmm! I will be interested to see if those who limit their spending can win. I hope so. I think if we make that the first criterion for our voting, we may see a real change. I encourage that. The list of who is accepting spending limits is on page 28 and 29 of your California voting pamphlet.
