Hey, I recognize one of those names -- Bret Daniels, who ran unsuccessfully for Sacramento County Sheriff. He previously served on the city council; I'm curious why he's running to return.

Cody - he resigned from City Council some years ago on the hopes of being hired on by Citrus Heights PD. I think he's run again for Council since. I guess this is becoming a regular thing.

I just met Charles Stone and it looks like he's coming out swinging! Here is a link to his Facebook page... https://www.facebook.com/CharlesStoneforCityCouncil

Hey Cody, I decided to run again after watching council put a utility tax increase on the ballot for November despite having a $33,000,000 surplus in the bank. That's morally offensive. With th resignation of Councilmember Karpinski-Costa, the voice of the people has been lost. I will return that voice. Oh and Laura, sort of but not exactly. I see you have decided not to pursue your earlier desire to be on the council. That's unfortunate. Bret

Well Bret - as usual - you're a bit off the mark. Good to see that you oppose measure K. Keep an eye on Patch for my next blog entry. As for not running this year - believe me, I've been asked, and asked (with funding to back it up). My priorities right now are in the right place. If I run again, it'll be when I have time to commit to the level of work the job requires.

Sorry for being a little bit off the mark. Can't be perfect like other people......
Laura Taylor August 27, 2012 at 06:43 PM
Tsk, tsk. I haven't met any perfect people - especially not in politics. Accuracy, honesty, and transparency are about all we can hope for.

There are two public forums to hear the candidate's positions. The CHASE forum is Oct. 4 at the CH Council Chambers (free event) and the Citrus Heights Regional Chamber of Commerce forum is Oct. 9 at the monthly luncheon at Crosswood Oaks (lunch purchase necessary.) I, too, am a candidate for City Council. I invite you to see www.dawsonch.com for further information on my campaign. Hope you can make it to one of the forums.
