A third Republican candidate for Jerry McNerney's Congressional seat announced his candidacy Thursday morning.

Tony Amador, a patrol officer for the Los Angeles Police Department for 13 years and U.S. Marshal the past seven years until his retirement in July, announced he is running for the 11th Congressional District seat held by McNerney, D-Pleasanton, who is serving his second term. It's the first time he's run for public office since his bid for the Orange County Republican Central Committee several years ago.

    Good Point Mrs. S. Isn`t that called a Conflict of Interest. Same tune different lyrics, unless they can reinvent the wheel, I think we have all heard what they will speak about and promise before. Wind Power my azz.As I posted yesterday, nuclear power and desalination are on the top of my list to ask the canidates, if I get the chance. San Louis Obispo and Oceanside have working desalination plants in operation at the present time. SoCal should follow since they are the ones in need of fresh water the most.

    In addition to honesty (or maybe as a part of honesty), it would be nice if legislators didn't write laws to benefit their own personal financial situations and businesses, or those of their friends. Cap and trade will be very good for McNerney's windfarm business. And he gets to vote on it. Isn't that special?

    Okay...is it only me or why would a candidate mention that his "achilles heel" is his honesty. If "achilles heel" used in a sentence normally means 'a seemingly small but crucial weakness'...and then uses it in the same sentence as Washington liars...does that mean if elected he is going to be just the same as those he is trying to replace? Is he weak in honesty? Why would anyone think honesty is a weakness?

    These old coots will just try and turn back the clock to less regulation and oversight and more taxes and hypocrisy. What we really need is someone who is HONEST! Is anyone out there with thick enough skin to be an honest politician?
