    Be sure to ask him:
    1. Why he can call himself a Christian, yet engage in such sleazy attacks in his work as a campaign consultant.
    2. How he can work for the Economic Freedom Fund, a front group that was funded by the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth founder, Robert Perry. Since EFF was implicated in some of those robo-calls that are being investigated, how does he see his former client?
    3. How’s the FBI investigation going?
    4. Why didn’t he speak a word of changing to a ‘CEO-type’ of County government after election, when he based so much of his campaign on this promise?
    5. Why hasn’t he worked at all on the Woodland flood control issue? Yes, he got a position funded, but seriously, he hasn’t done squat to lower our flood insurance. And blaming it on Wild and Scenic is a cop-out.
    6. What does he think about Westlands buying a large Yolo County ranch? Does his love of conservatism and the free market run up against a desire for us to control our water, or is their purchase fine with him? Does he feel their private property rights include doing whatever they want with their water, even if it is exported out of County?
    7. Did he back Cathy Kennedy for District 4, just because she’s a conservative? After all, she’s the only Republican (despite what her voter registration NOW says) running. And she has less experience than the others. ‘Fresh’ doesn’t count as an answer.
    8. He loves Jim Nielsen, but does he agree that AIDS is God’s punishment against gays, like Jim has said?
    9. Why did he post on his blog, during the 2004 election cycle, that Osama Bin Laden was a Democrat?
    10. He says he only represents Woodland. So does he represent the other District 3 constituents, and if their desire conflicts with Woodland’s, does he choose rural or urban?
    11. His business partner said that all elections are partisan, including local races. Does he believe this? Would he be willing to tell his clients this?

    Enjoyed the show. However, I don’t think Rexroad fully gets what Davis is going through – especially when he assumes UCD provides sufficient jobs for the city. I don’t think so. We need more business, to prevent leakage in sales tax going to Woodland. The part about tax leakage Rexroad did recognize. Lively discussion.

    Your statement is a false rebuttal. You immediately poison the well by inferring that lack of courage is what led to me not calling in, thus attempting to shift debate from your actions, as stated above, to one of my not calling in and that the lack of courage was the reason.
    Your Republican playbook appears well worn.
    In fact, I was busy caring for my children, and thus could not call in.
    This, of course, does not change the relevance of my above questions, nor your lack of answering them.
    Nice try, though.
