As 2021 gets underway, West Sacramento has new leadership in its mayor for the first time in over two decades. In the November 3rd general election West Sacramentans decided to go with councilwoman Martha Guerrero for mayor over incumbent Christopher Cabaldon, who held the seat for 22 years. Along with Guerrero, voters also went with her ally Norma Alcala for city council.
With two open seats for city council, Alcala took the second city council seat while Quirina Orozco was re-elected to the city council seat she’s held since 2016. Finishing third and failing to qualify for the two open council seats was Dr. Dawnte Early, who was endorsed by Mayor Cabaldon. The election of Martha Guerrero to mayor also left her council seat vacant and needing to be filled.
While Martha Guerrero is ready to lead West Sacramento in a new direction, council members Christopher Ledesma and Quirina Orozco, who are considered allies to former mayor Christopher Cabaldon, were playing politics as usual and not cooperating with the new mayor’s agenda. Mayor Guerrero’s attempts to fill commissioner appointments were met with objections from councilmember Ledesma.
When asked about councilmember Ledesma’s objections, Mayor Guerrero said, “I want to appoint fresh new faces, people with experience and expertise who can connect with the community. The council members had the opportunity to interview any of the 90 applicants that applied for these commissions and the two councilmembers (Ledesma and Orozco) recommended many applicants who would be reappointed for another term. I did select a few of Councilman Ledesma’s and Orozco's commission recommendations and it appeared Ledesma was not happy I didn’t select all of his recommendations.”.Read more

Are you happy with our state's COVID-19 response?
By any measure, Gavin Newsom's COVID-19 response has been appalling. His arbitrary restrictions and unconstitutional lockdowns have destroyed the lives and businesses of millions of Californians.
You can make a difference - by signing a petition to Recall Newsom.

The deliberate misleading of voters with deceptive titles and language... promoting some insignificant benefit... or just saying whatever it takes to get the proposition passed... has become a new art form....

The Failed Promises of the Socialist Utopia
Big, Centralized Government doesn't solve problems; it creates large unintended consequences.
California state government is a perfect example of socialism gone amuck, the failures include: the huge Health and Human Services budget, underperforming schools, the state's role in the Student Loan Crisis, businesses (employers) leaving the state, ridiculous infrastructure spending, the demise of agricultural production, and the wildfire crisis. This list is not all inclusive, there many more programs in which centralized control has failed the citizens of California.

Ballot Collection Background
In its simplest form, Third Party Return of Voted Ballots, a.k.a ballot collection, is the collection of absentee and mail-in ballots by another individual, not a member of the voter's household. The collector is then responsible to deliver the collected ballots to county election offices or voting centers before the close of voting on Election Day.
