Don’t elect Gov. Moonbeam

I just finished reading an opinion from an obvious Brown supporter who asked questions from the Brown camp and the Whitman camp. Maybe I can add a little to the discussion.

I have lived in California since 1981. I actually witnessed what happened in California under then Gov. Brown.

In his own wisdom, he diverted funds targeted to updating our freeways because he thought that “if we don’t build more freeways, they won’t come.” Hey Jerry, “they” came anyway but now we have massive traffic jams.

What did he do with the money? He spent it on heartwarming welfare programs. No wonder the state is broke today. What has he showed us as state attorney general? A total disregard for the will of the voter by opposing Proposition 8, the marriage protection act.

His job was to enforce it, but he allowed his personal opinion to override his responsibilities. We now have a President who is doing the same thing. So think twice before you elect “Gov. Moonbeam” who supports President Obama.
