I was waiting to see which way Clean Water Action would swing their support. God only knows we want clean water coming out of our taps.
Now, do you think Clean Water Action could influence Pete Stark to actually make a public appearance where he can actually be asked
about his views on various subjects.
For example has his campaign decided they are willing to participate in any campaign forums or debates. You know, like the League of Women Voter puts on.
Where you stand up and let the voters see if you're still capable of speaking to the issues.
Thus far, from what I read, Pete has said he will refuse to engage in any such public events.
The says the media just asks "stupid questions".. to which he is apparently fearful he will give stupid sounding answers.
Look, if the only exposure the Stark campaign is willing to allow is via a pile of 15 or 25 mailers in our stuffed boxes, then it hardly speaks well of Pete's current abilities to hold office for another 2 years.
Pete, why won't you make public appearances during this campaig?
Please reconsider if you want our votes. Don't (no pun intended) "mail it in".

"The organization said it only endorses candidates "who have demonstrated a long-standing commitment
to protecting the environment and solving environmental issues that many communities face.""
How about a commitnent to be honest? The guy is collecting social security for his children! He is playing the system. My father could have collected social security too but did not because he was still working and well off, why do people like Stark feel entitled to abuse a system that is going broke?
I am NOT voting for Stark, and I hope others do the same.
We need someone who will think about others, and about solutions to problems like the social security fund which is going broke! We do not need dishonest people who milk the system just because they can.
Shame on you Stark, for collecting social security, and shame on all who endorse dishonest Stark!

", Pete has said he will refuse to engage in any such public events. "
I am not surprised, he probably wants to avoid ansering questions about why he is collecting social security for his kids, knowing that he is still working and does not need the money, and knowing that the social security fund is in trouble.
Shame on Stark! Do not vote for him! I won't
It was, in fact, the PW which reported the story about Stark collecting social security benefits for his children:
