What a blunder

For all you undecided voters, you know who you are. Anyone on the fence, still debating who is most qualified, fell off the fence this weekend.

Robin Sutherland’s lack of knowledge in her own district was obvious at her kickoff rally this weekend in LWW. While answering a question about an upcoming event in her campaign, she was unable to name our local park, where she plans to hold a hot dog fund-raiser.

Robin, can you explain to us how on Aug. 24 your answer to the preceding question was, “Oh, is that what it’s called?” Yes, Robin, our park in Penn Valley is called Western Gateway. Robin, regarding your comment at the Republican picnic, “We need roads; we don’t need new parks.” Roads to where? What parks are you talking about? Oh, the park in Penn Valley, the one you could not name? One suggestion, Robin: When they hand you your talking points, you should read them first.
