Here are Sargord's mid-term election endorsements for the great state of California:
Governor: Jerry Brown
After the 2009 election in Iran, an Iranian-American rally was held at the San Francisco Civic Center, where Jerry attended and gave a speech pledging his support for the Iranian-American community. Jerry's a good man. I had the good fortune of meeting him in person backstage at a Elton John/Billy Joel concert in the early '00s. There, I thanked him for his granting of asylum for one of the greatest NA leaders of the 20th century; someone I met while attending university during the 1970s.
Lieutenant Governor: Gavin Newsom
I first met Gavin Newsom during his first campaign for mayor of San Francisco, during a luncheon held by a business association I was involved with at the time. He is a personable, likable guy in person. His personal sweep across town after being elected, to show his thanks to all his "little guy" supporters, was particularly memorable for those of us that saw it firsthand.
Attorney General: Kamala Harris
During the early/mid '00s I attended a social attended by Harris, select members of the DA staff, private attorneys and members of the liberal SF establishment. I support Kamala Harris' courageous position against capital punishment. I am in support of this position even though I am a victim of violent crime where a loved one was murdered many years ago in San Francisco.
U.S. Senator: Duane Roberts
Barbara Boxer is pro-Israel, anti-Iran; advocating economic warfare (sanctions) against the people of Iran. As such, a vote for Boxer is a vote against the ordinary people of Iran. Fiorina would be expected to vote for even worse measures against the people of Iran, including outright war. Thus, Duane Roberts and the advocacy of peace espoused by the Green Party is endorsed.
U.S. Representaive: Green Party candidates
U.S. Representative candidates are numerous, but one thing stands out among them: Green party candidate advocate peace, and for this reason they are endorsed. Congresswoman Eshoo, who is up for reelection in her district, is vehemently anti-Iran and should not be voted for by anyone from the Iranian-American community.
Don't forget to vote Tuesday, Nov. 2, 2010!
