Although the 13th Assembly District doesn't cover a large population of the Lodi area, voters in Morada and rural areas west of Lodi will find the four candidates on their ballot in the June primary election.

There were five candidates, but Democrat Xochitl Paderes dropped out of the race last week due to personal reasons. That leaves two Democrats and two Republicans competing in next Tuesday's primary election.

    Dolores: Thank you for bringing your website address to my attention. I must have missed it. I just corrected it and inserted the address.

    I am still working part time for the California Department of Corrections as an RN. I do have a website for review at www.DoloresCooper.com, and I am running for AD 13 because the decisions made in Sacramento have been harmful to the citizens of this state for over 30 years. Sanity in voting must be restored. Most liberals have never had a real job or owned a business. Their career has been in sucking off the state and they are destroying it. I will read every bill, and I will vote NO on any measure that hurts business, farmers, citizens, and I will vote NO on any tax or fee increase. I will look for taxes and fees to eliminate!!

    We need some fresh faces in our government. I am sure Jafri is a very nice person, but if I see one person running that is from a government agency, I'm running away FAST! And we see what Eggman has helped do to the city of Stockton, with all of thier Green consultant waste (even in this very turbulent time, they just signed on ANOTHER Green persona for $165,000.00!) So let Eggman go up to Sacramento and join the other loonies at the Capitol? ANd help drive the nail in the coffin of this state? We have seen nothing yet, as to the ramifications of AB32 and SB375. No thank you, Cooper has my vote.

    I agree, Kim, get the government out of business! All it does is mess it up, offer money with strings attached....and green = shutting business down. More regulation, more fines, more control by government telling these farmers how much dirt they can move on their own land...

    The writer of this article doesn't seem to be current with Dolores' information...her website is www.dolorescooper.com, and she talks about many other issues as she addresses groups locally. She is against CARB (CA Air Resources Board) shutting down trucking and farming through insane regulations; she is against higher taxes for more government programs. She is for a prosperous California. She has seen the massive waste of state taxpayer dollars in the prison system, paying for hormone shots for inmates who think they should have been born women...we are paying 500-800 per month, per inmate. There are 33 prisons. She is not a politician, this is her first time running, to get more sane people in the CA government.

    Red flag- Jafri "Attract federally funded programs for economic development to San Joaquin County" More tax dollars trying to prop up private enterprise..

    Double Red Flag- Eggman- Jobs through "green" energy; (RUN, DON'T WALK!) work with businesses and public agencies to make regulation work for the economy, not against it - THAT is an oxymoron- not possible..
