Vote for Kou

PACs, the DNC and RNC have essentially disenfranchised individual voters by pre-ordaining select candidates and buying their election with ads and flyeres that assure name recognition, but disregard critical information like policy positions. We need Assembly Members who will think, act, and vote independently. And work hard for what is best for the state. The incumbents are not doing that and as a result, critical problems are worsening. Voting Lydia Kou in is an opportunity to start to change that. She has a track record of working hard, listening to her constituents, and voting for what is best. Vote for Kou!

Annette Ross, Palo Alto

Lydia puts principle above personal gain

There are far too few people in politics today who put principle above personal gain.  Lydia is one these.  She recognizes that only by advocating for common good can our society flourish.  Thriving relies on science and fairness.  When a politician kowtows to narrow interests for personal gain, he or she sacrifices both of these, and all of us suffer.  My vote is for Lydia, because she represents all of us, including future generations.
