MAILERGATE? Who is trying to manipulate our local election?

It seems powerful and influential people from outside our county are attempting to manipulate our local election.

Last week, some voters in District 5 received a particularly offensive and inaccurate color mailer -- a direct hit piece on me. (Brian Oneto disavowed that mailer, and assured me that he had no knowledge of it.)

Apparently District 3 also received a mailer from the same organization. Since I originally posted about this, quite a few people have asked for more information about the sender. I did some research, as reported below. You can trace the links if you want to learn more for yourself.

The return address on both mailers is Taxpayers for Good Government (TGG), 5802 Robertson Ave, Carmichael, CA 95608. A search returned information on both that entity and Environmental Safety Alliance (ESA) although both are actually listed at 5804 Robertson Avenue (see links below for the incorporation papers and more details on who they are).
The Directors of these two organizations are:

Steve Nicolaou – 445 W 11th St, Suite C Tracy, CA 95376
John Stoos – 2117 48th St. Sacramento, CA 95817
Scott Winn – 2319 Otto Drive, Stockton, CA 95209
https://businesssearch.sos.ca.gov/Document/RetrievePDF…
Dr. Robert Johnson – 3407 Arden Way, Sacramento, CA 95825 (old address)
Andre Feliz, MD – 1840 Westminster Court, Carmichael, CA 95608
Pastor John Stoos – 4246 2nd Avenue, Sacramento, CA 95825
https://businesssearch.sos.ca.gov/Document/RetrievePDF…

There is quite a bit of interesting information online regarding all of these Directors. Of note, John Stoos worked for Tom McClintock. John Feliz was McClintock’s campaign manager.
http://www.churchofthekingsacramento.org/…/john-stoos-elder/

Note the Feliz last name. An address search reveals that John Feliz and Andre Feliz have shared the same address in Carmichael.

There are so many overlapping organizations, addresses and people in this mess, that it would be a long journey down the rabbit hole to track it all down. However, what I did find interesting is that John Stoos and John Feliz also appear to be linked to an organization called Citizens for the California Republic which was originally incorporated by Tom McClintock.

I hope you will ignore the outsiders who want to control our local government and vote your conscience on June 5. Thank you.

Andrea Macon Urges Community Donations to Common Ground

Common Ground, which runs the Amador County Meals on Wheels program as well as transportation services for seniors and veterans, delivers meals to about 300 seniors in Amador County. They are desperately in need of funding.

According to Bailey McKeehan, Senior Nutrition Coordinator at Common Ground, due to federal budget cuts, the slow down in donations, and the rise in rent at their offices, Common Ground has had to cut a number of programs in the last year. Starting July 1st, they are eliminating hot meal and fresh meal delivery and going to all frozen food deliveries in Amador County. They've chosen to go to frozen foods rather than eliminate clients.

More details are available in this video presentation at the Board of Supervisor's meeting from March. (Issue starts at about 50:00).

The delivery of daily meals is certainly about ensuring that homebound seniors are not hungry, but it is also about daily contact and company with other people. It is about someone checking in every day to make sure our seniors are healthy and well.

I will be donating to the Common Ground program via this link: https://commongroundseniorservices.org. Please join me in supporting this valuable resource to our seniors and our community, and donating to Common Ground.

Thank you.
Andrea Macon

Oneto's harsh stance on senior hunger

Andrea Macon’s opponent often states he is an advocate for the seniors in our community.

Yet in March 2018, when Amador County’s Common Ground Senior Services asked the Board of Supervisors for funding to bridge a budget gap so that our impoverished and isolated seniors could count on fresh, nourishing meals and daily, caring contact, Brian Oneto questioned whether they were really hungry enough.

Listen for yourself...

Are You Being Truly Represented? Incumbent's Recused Himself 185 Times

District 5 deserves a supervisor who is actively engaged in all district issues.

Due to conflicts of interest, the incumbent has recused himself from 185 discussions and votes during 161 meetings over a period of 10 years. The next highest recusal rate for a supervisor during the same time frame was 15 recusals.

Review the data for yourself.

Andrea Macon will have few -- if any -- such conflicts of interest.
