We have new major

So, according to an article in Tracy Press, Brent Ives is new major of Tracy. Dave Parker observed [post is removed now]: "... developer money wins, the voice of the people ignored." I don't quite understand how he figured that. After all, people voted. If that is not the voice of the people, what is?

The Tracy Press article notices that "... up to $100,000 being spent on attack advertisements against his [Ives'] opponent, sponsored by developers, a supermarket chain and the political action committee of Rep. Richard Pombo, R-Tracy." It's funny they say it, because I have not seen any ads until the last day, when someone dropped two cards, for Ives and Garamedi respectively, on my doorstep. The Garamedi's one had some pretty unrealistic promises printed on it, by the way. So, as far as I am concerned, the "up to $100,000" were wasted on me. Poor Pombo, he should've spent them on his own campaign.
