Archived: EDITORIAL: June 8 Primary Election Endorsements


State Controller – John Chiang. We admire Chiang’s willingness to say no when he believes the actions of the governor and legislature are out of line.

We do not know of any other official with the nerve to issue IOU’s to the public when issuing checks would have made the state’s precarious economic situation even worse. Chiang has been willing to sound the warning bell on more than one occasion, and to challenge his fellow state legislators to “prove their numbers” and to base their budget figures on the reality of the state’s finances rather then on their overly hopeful pipe dreams.

Though we don’t always agree with him, we admire his stand up attitude.
