John McDonald

Posted: Saturday, May 12, 2012 12:00 am | Updated: 9:31 am, Sat May 12, 2012.

John McDonald is arguably the least known among the three candidates on the June primary ballot for the 9th Congressional District seat. He lives in the south end of the district, Mountain House, and hasn't received the financial backing of either Democrat Jerry McNerney or Republican Ricky Gill.

McDonald, also a Republican, is focusing his campaign against Gill, while Gill focuses more on defeating McNerney.

    I think you are very very wrong, Mr. Singh. He and Jerry McNereny could not be more apart on issues. I have heard John McDonald speak on numerous occasions and I think your comment could not be farther from the truth. He has not offered any negative comments about Ricky Gill, but does answer when asked about Ricky, and Ricky's experience. John McDonald is the first candidate in quite some time that I can say I am actually excited about. I will vote for him with enthusiasm, not just because I feel he is the lesser of 2 evils. He has a business background, which is so needed in our government. I hope that if he does not get the nomination this time around, that he will continue to pursue some position in our government whether it be state or federal. I have found Ricky Gill to be evasive on issues, and John McDonald will answer your questions rapidly and with conviction. He does not stick his finger up in the air to see which way the wind is blowing. I have real concerns also about Gill's "globalist" approach to our country.

    This man actually working with McNerney's team to take votes away from Gill. He does not care to win, only to support McNerney. Devious.
