there were a couple of threads re. the SC sheriff's race but, for being the most populous county in NorCal, there wasn't much interest.

Good luck, you'll need it.

Dear Friend,

Just a few weeks until Election Day and Joe is surging in the polls. According to the Mercury News, he is in a statistical tie for second place to Laurie Smith and IS running second among Independents, Santa Clara County's second-largest voter bloc.

We need to raise $10,000 right away to pay for signs, robo-calls, and other voter contact materials to ensure Joe gets into the runoff.

Will you help today?

Please donate $25, $50, $100, $250, $500 or a maximum of $1,000 today!

Remember, Joe is the ONLY candidate for Sheriff who opposes SB 54 and sanctuary cities and WILL issue CCWs for legitimate self-defense.

Please contribute your maximum amount today!

Thanks!

So, I take current events isn't good news based on the zero posts here since yesterday's election (primary)?

More plop-plop-fizz-fizz?

I read somewhere that Smith will be in a runoff in Nov against the guy with the Japanese last name. Since he's attacking Smith for being too conservative/Trump, I doubt he'll issue more CCWs than Smith.

Since her job is at risk, this might be the time to approach her to loosen issuance, to shore up and energize her Right (since her challenger is taking the Left).

June 5 primary results for Santa Clara County Sheriff:

LAURIE SMITH 43.98% 78,828
JOHN HIROKAWA 31.08% 55,702
JOE LA JEUNESSE 11.91% 21,342
JOSE SALCIDO 8.63% 15,466
MARTIN J. MONICA 4.40% 7,895


I'll vote against Hirokawa in the general since some of the crazies in my neighborhood are supporting him.

Sheesh... being labeled a conservative is the new "racist" of the lefty.

If those are the two choices for Santa Clara county... it's time for y'all to seriously consider finding a new CCW friendly county.

For the record, a buddy of mine in the department (who one could not call "liberal" in any sense) says Hirokawa is the best option of the group.

Best option from the standpoint of CCW issuance?

What "group"? The primary is over. There's only going to be Smith and Hirokawa on the ballot in November. Hirokawa used to be a Repub, but switched to Dem and has been attacking Smith from the Left, describing her as a Trump/conservative. I'd need a link to a news source to believe Hirokawa will be more pro CCW than Smith. (Actually, that should be "to believe Hirokawa will be less anti CCW than Smith.")

[UPDATE 2018-06-12: I'm rethinking my position about voting "against" Mr. Hirokawa. See locomike's post further down.]

These are the political organizations that endorse Mr. Hirokawa (from his campaign page). I think I'm still going to vote against him, despite my dislike of Sheriff Smith.

Santa Clara County Democratic Party
Democratic Activists for Women Now (DAWN)
City of Santa Clara Democratic Club
Democratic Club of Sunnyvale
Silicon Valley Asian Pacific American Democratic Club
Silicon Valley Young Democrats

Of the 2, Hirokawa is our guy. Hes smart enough not to publicly say much on CCW. I can pretty much guarantee you the CCW situation will improve under Hirokawa though. I know someone in his campaign. Im not going to say any more on the public post here. And Smith, I dont think, will budge on CCW till hell freezes over.

Hmm ... interesting. I may need to rethink my current position. Thanks for the tidbit.

CCW issuance could not get any worse than it is under Smith. I'd vote for any steaming pile of dog crap before I ever vote for her. The odds of getting a CCW would improve! For this reason alone, Hirokawa has my vote.

The guy who's attacking Smith as a Trump conservative will issue more CCWs than Smith.... Color me skeptical.

If that's not true, you just got a new, younger anti as sheriff who will be there longer, until Hirokawa decides to retire.

What I do know is that Smith (b. 1952) is a lot older than Hirokawa, so she'll probably be replaced/retire sooner than Hirokawa.
