So I’m off this week. Just got back from a short camping trip — don’t much care for publicly announcing when I won’t be home, so I didn’t. But I’m back in town now yet still not actively at work, although I’ll be attending tomorrow night’s forum to gather more thread for the school board candidate story. But I’m officially off until Monday.

Here’s the info on this week’s candidate forums, which ran as a brief in the Review:

CANDIDATE FORUMS: There will be a forum for Hayward Unified school board candidates from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday in room 804 at Chabot College, 25555 Hesperian Blvd.

The event is sponsored by the college’s political science department and Chabot College Foundation.

Organizers said all candidates are expected to attend.

There will be another forum at 7 p.m. Friday at the Westminster Hills Presbyterian Church, 27287 Patrick Ave. That event, sponsored by the Hayward Demos Democratic Club, the Greater Hayward Democratic Club and GLOBE, will be followed by a forum for candidates running for the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District board.

    I have gandered through the ballot sent to me in the mail, and it contains a long list of judges for approval. If anyone has any knowledge of these persons, I would appreciate them sharing their opinions here. Goodness!

    The judges for the State Supreme Court and Court of Appeal, First District, Divisions 1-5 are all standing judges. They have lots of experience as judges and are generally thought of well by their peers. They have all put in their time. They will continue the traditions of the California federal courts, meaning that they are highly respected by SCOTUS and are an anathema to conservatives and those who believe that the court is too far to the left. In reality, you and I have very little choice. We can only vote no.

    Victoria Kolakowski is more liberal than John Creighton.

    Monica,

    Are you supporting Ms. Walker? If so, would you please let us know why do you think she is a good candidate?

    I’m thinking about it. I’ll let you know when I decide.
