ABOUT ROBYN'S RECOMMENDATIONS
Robyn consulted numerous sources/advisors in the process of making her recommendations. Some of the candidates on her recommendation list are excellent. Some, however, are simply listed as the best of the available options in a given race. Her recommendations do not imply support for every position, statement or behavior of a candidate.
Prop 41: NO
Prop 42: YES

STATE EXECUTIVE OFFICES
TIM DONNELLY - Website
Of the three viable candidates in this race, Tim Donnelly, Neel Kashkari, and Jerry Brown, I believe that conservative/ libertarian-leaning Donnelly is the best choice.
The other viable “Republican,” Neel Kashkari, has been called the “Bank Bailout Czar” and the “700 Billion Dollar Man” for his role as the Treasury official who oversaw the big bank bailout – TARP (Troubled Asset Relief Program). Kashkari voted for Obama in 2008, is pro-abortion, and supports same-sex marriage. There are some other minor candidates in this race who have good values. Unfortunately, a vote for them will most likely end up helping Kashkari.
RON NEHRING - Website
SECRETARY OF STATE
PETE PETERSON - best option
ASHLEY SWEARENGIN - Website
Unfortunately, she supports high speed rail. Having said that, she is still the best among the viable options.
GREG CONLON as the best option in the race. (Conlon is liberal on social issues.)
PHIL WYMAN - Website
TED GAINES - Website
Good guy; pretty solid voting record!
BOARD OF EQUALIZATION
District 1: GEORGE RUNNER - Website
District 2: James E. Theis as the best option in the race

I always check out these two excellent conservative voter guides from my friend, Craig Huey. Although we don't always see eye-to-eye on every single race, we agree on most.

State Board of Equalization, 2nd District:
Republican James E Theis is the best option.
US REPRESENTATIVE; DISTRICT 24:
Robyn Highly Recommends DALE FRANCISCO
Dale Francisco's Endorsements Include: the California Republican Assembly (CRA) and the Santa Barbara Republican Club.
Santa Barbara Councilman Dale Francisco is a solid conservative on both social and fiscal issues. Dale has had experience in the private sector as well as in government. In his successful 2011 campaign for re-election to the Santa Barbara City Council, Dale earned the most votes of any candidate in a field of ten candidates vying for three seats. (This is very impressive in city in which Democrats have such an edge in registration.) Dale Francisco for Congress
MEMBER of the STATE ASSEMBLY, DISTRICT 35
While not a solid conservative, Republican Katcho Achadjian is certainly the better of the two candidates in the race. Achadijian is endorsed by the CA ProLife Council.
(Note: Liberal Climate Change activist, Heidi Harmon, is running against Achadjian.
2 of Harmon's 3 Top State Priorities have to do with Climate Change:
Comprehensive climate change/sustainable energy policy; and infrastructure creation and support including climate adaptation infrastructure.)
There are no uncontested judge races in San Luis Obispo County.

STOP "COMMON CORE!"
Common Core can only be stopped if citizens in every state demand that their representatives block the standards.
"Common Core proponents offer upbeat descriptions of utopian educational goals along with detailed practical lists of what students should know and be able to do in grades K–12 in mathematics and English language arts. But those goals and standards are just two facets of the conglomeration of federal funding, preschool–workforce invasive student tracking, and one-size-fits-all computer-based learning that has become the Common Core."
