Ortiz has now been endorsed by four of the five West Sacramento Trustees. All cited Ortiz’s extensive educational and professional background as the reason to become the next Yolo County Superintendent of Schools. The number of Yolo County elected and former elected officials who have endorsed Ortiz is now fifty. His support continues to grow countywide.

    I had the good fortune to meet Judicial Candidate Larenda Delaini on Sunday and I came away very favorably impressed. She was articulate, clearly had a solid understanding of the law and its myriad nuances, but most of all was fully conversant with how the many changes that are happening to the California Penal System are affecting the Courts. It was both impressive and fascinating to listen to Larenda talk with Gloria Pardida about that subject.

    Larenda is a Yolo County (Davis) resident, which distinguishes her from two of the other candidates (Rick Cohen and Janene Beronio) who have live in Sacramento. Having our Yolo County Superior Court Judges live in the same community where they preside is a desirable quality.

    I encourage everyone to go to the Farmers Market this Saturday and meet Larenda at her booth.

          One interesting fact about the U.S. House of Representatives: You do not have to have a seat in the House in order to be elected Speaker of the House. It’s never happened; and it never will. But in theory, a majority of the members of the House today could elect me as their Speaker. I would accept; and appoint Julie Crawford as the official volleyball coach of the House of Representatives.
