Political Potpourri: McClintock book donations, Coffee with Curtis Sat.

Local schools are about to get surplus books from the Library of Congress.

Congressman Tom McClintock’s chief of staff and the Congressional district director will be distributing books at both high schools and Alta Sierra Elementary School today.

Talk politics over coffee with Democratic Congressional candidate Clint Curtis this week.

Curtis will be at Sierra Mountain Coffee Roasters, 671 Maltman Dr. in Grass Valley, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

The Roseville resident is currently running for 4th District U.S. Congress against incumbent Tom McClintock and Green party candidate Ben Emery.

He is focused on bringing more funding and more jobs to the district, protecting water and the environment, ending political bickering, and promoting an all-inclusive method to governance in Congress, according to his campaign.

The 81,000-member California Farm Bureau Federation has endorsed Republican Doug LaMalfa for the 4th state Senate District.

A fourth-generation rice farmer from Richvale, LaMalfa served three terms in the state Assembly, where he compiled a strong voting record on behalf of family farmers and ranchers, the federation said.

“Anyone who has ever met Doug LaMalfa will know right away that he makes the future of agriculture a top priority,” California Farm Bureau President Paul Wenger said. “As a family farmer who has had to cope with the layer upon layer of regulation that farms, ranches and other businesses face, he recognizes the urgent need to improve the state’s business climate and protect its rural communities.”

The federation also took a stance on California ballot initiatives:

Proposition 19: NO

Proposition 20: YES

Proposition 21: NO

Proposition 22: YES

Proposition 23: YES

Proposition 24: NO

Proposition 25: NO

Proposition 26: YES

Proposition 27: NO
