Speaking of Realtor money, today I received a costly, large, 4-page mailer, paid for by Cal Realtors, supporting Annie Oliva.

I wonder what she promised them to get their support?
Her official campaign filings also show much local Realtor money to her as well.

I don't know the other two candidates, but Ms. Lieber shone brightly on an issue that concerned my family years ago.

My parents were part of a group advocating for clients at the now-closed Agnews Developmental Center in the South Bay. These were the most helpless people, some of whom got 24/7 care. Ms. Lieber was in the legislature, advocating for more state funding to ease clients "transitioning" into the community when the institution was to be closed.

She did a fine job.

Sally Lieber will not accept contributions from realtor organizations or the fossil fuels industry. Both of these prohibitions are close to my heart.

Sally is the only candidate with statewide experience, having served as State Assembly Speaker Pro Tem, and she is the most progressive.

California is by default the American leader in the fight against climate change. Sally represents a rare opportunity to elect someone who is all in to reduce CO2 emissions, both locally, but more important, statewide and beyond.

I've endorsed Sally Lieber for State Senate (Jerry Hill's termed out), and have contributed as well. The primary election is March 3. Don't miss it!

The Pacifica Progressive Alliance endorsed Sally Lieber, Democrat for State Senate. She said she won't take real estate money. https://votesally.org/endorse/

I look at as many factors as I can when evaluating candidates, but my top one for many years has been: Do they take the money? Big money "buys" elections, corrupts the election process, and corrupts candidates--and, eventually, officeholders--no matter how strong their resolve or pure their intentions when they start out. This approach winnows fields rapidly, and I seldom have regrets.

What will each candidate do to prevent the dangerous effects of global warming on Peninsula residents? Will they support building over disappearing wetlands, on eroding coastlines, on a highway projected to be inundated over the next 100 years? How will they address the county's contribution to global warming, where we are at tipping points today?
How we know that global warming is real:
