    You bet the UNIONS want their "pet" in office. He helps them and in turn they help him. All of this at the expense of the taxpayer. Unions do nothing more than drive up the cost of everything they are involved in and line the pockets of politicians that support them. McNerney didn't get my vote.

    Anyone supported by the Unions in this state will not get my vote... down with the teet suckling dems!!!!!!! It's interesting that public service unions spend the vast majority of their member's dues on individual campaign efforts. Classic example of a broken system.

    Unfortunately, begin endorsed by public safety employees (police or fire) has nothing to do with safety. It's all about the money. How much and how long. It's really as simple as that.

    Ms. Parigoris, stay on the issue. Where is Mr. Harmer and his good old boy endorsements even mentioned in this snippet? He's had his listed already? Please look over the fence and note that the grass is just as green on the other side. If you vote for either of these spinners, that's your own personal choice.

    Well its not suprising that many of the public service employees support this faux guy...like all the unions who are behind such Democratic support. Vallejo for example has bascially three police forces...one full time (bahahahalolol) and two that receive full pensions that the city of Vallejo can not afford. Jerry (Brown nose) I'm a union puppet along with many others long ago negotiated such contracts years ago and now in order to pay for such unreal retirement pakages we the public must yearly shore up these contracts to the tune of 6 billion are year...anyone who does not understand that California needs to go back to these union thugs and cut them off and re-negotiate this small problem that is basically stealing from the basic lively hoods of the average California worker who's not on the goverment you know what? Well our awesome Fire fighters and I mean no disrespect have lived off the fat of the beautiful landscape of what once was a beautiful state and now must buck up along with the rest of us and vote these elites out...now! But that won't happen...the re-negotiation not the vote!

    And David Harmer has been endorsed by Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, Club For Growth PAC, Associated Builders and Contractors, San Joaquin Farm Bureau Association, National Federation of Independent Business, Tom McLintock, Lew Uhler- National Tax Limitation Commitee President. I have the utmost respect for our civil servants, but David Harmer has been endorsed by strong private business entities- and this is where we need growth in this country- private industry. Also Mr McNerney is boasting of the Electric car plant that is aupposedly going up in Stockton- here is an article about JD Powers and their opinion of success for the electric car through the next decade. http://detnews.com/article/20101027/AUTO01/10270392/1148/rss25
