I was very pleased to see the Scotts Valley Press-Banner on the John Laird for Senate brochure endorsing his candidacy.
Even though I’m not a resident of Scotts Valley, I would like to urge Scotts Valleyans who care to cast their vote in the Aug. 17 special election for the 15th District Senate seat.
As a former assemblyman representing the folks in Santa Cruz County, we know he will care about offshore oil drilling, our children’s education, jobs for California workers and other important issues. We need a local Bay Area senator with first-hand knowledge about our Central California problems, and John Laird is our man.
Please, Scotts Valley voters, put a big red X on your calendars on Aug. 17 and get yourself and your friends, relatives and neighbors down to the polls. It’s important!
