I attended the Candidates Forum sponsored by the California Republican Assembly of San Joaquin County at the Harvest Church on March 27. The Lodi News-Sentinel's reporting as it relates to the 9th Assembly District would lead the reader to a different conclusion about the three candidates than what should have been reported.

One candidate emphasized unfunded mandates imposed on local government by the state. He discussed "zero-based budgeting," and a state that has a spending problem, not a revenue problem. He stated the importance of "sunset" clauses on government programs that take on a life of their own, once created by law. The candidate with well-thought-out answers and a breadth of knowledge beyond the other two candidates in this race is retired U.S. Marshal Tony Amador.

He stated that he was not a career politician, but possessed various government experiences from the local, state and federal levels.

Being a resident of Elk Grove for 18 or 40 years is not as important to the voter as where the candidate stands on issues, and their experience as a representative of the electorate. From the amount of square inches afforded to one of the other candidates versus that afforded Mr. Nemeth and retired U.S. Marshal Amador, you can quickly surmise that the Lodi News-Sentinel is sold on Sophia Scherman. This is not objective reporting.
