Does anyone know if Tim is a (D) or (R)?

He is being endorsed by Joan Buchanan, so I am assuming he is a Democrat.

He's middle of the road. Pro-business, fiscal conservative. He reaches out to the people. We would do good to have him on board.

Sbranti is approachable and even tempered. I'm guessing this is the seat Cheryl Cook-Kallio so desperately wanted to run for.

If Sbranti wins this seat, hopefully he will finally resign his position as a high school teacher at Dublin High School. Right now he is drawing a full salary and is only their part time; and when he is there he is THE perveyor of fluff and rah-rah -- little to do with academics.
He is a Democrat and the only good thing that would be good about him getting elected is if he blocked uber-left-wing-loon Cook-Kalio from the seat.

Cheryl Cook-Kallio had no desire to run for this assembly seat. How ironic, some people on this blog say Cook-Kallio is developer friendly, beholden to the Chamber and others that she is a left-wing loon. Hmmm. Does this mean independent, centrist? Nevermind the facts people, carry on with your silly statements.

Fact Checker,
Here is a fact for you. Cook-Kallio had union firefighters parking cars at her fund raisers. Does that give you clue?
