You’re kidding me, Bruce McPherson. Moving to “decline to state” as a voter? Republicans should be offended. This is the party that supported you in the Assembly, the state Senate, even as California Secretary of State. Now you turn your back on them so you can run for local office? Really?
Democrats should also be offended at this obvious political ploy to hide your conservative side. It isn’t your party registration, it’s your voting record that really matters.
Even independents should be offended. They eschew the parties because of the dysfunction in the state carved by party polarization. You are still a party person, though. Why else would you have helped Sam Blakeslee against our own John Laird two years ago? You didn’t need to be a part of that nasty, negative campaign, but you were. Why else did you endorse Byrl Smith in Monterey County against Jane Parker? Because he is so qualified? Clearly not. That was only a month ago. Yet you want us to believe this political move was not about election in November. We know better. Shame on you, Bruce.
