The following is the second article in a series for the Election 2014, where we provide a copy of Mayor Swanson’s ballot statement, as follows, with my commentary interspersed, (in blue):
“I am asking to be reelected, because I do not see myself as a politician, but as a Community Member.
( See below for Swanson’s voluminous depiction of a “politician’s resume.” )
I will work for the good Wildomar Residents.
This deplorable distinction of working for the “good” Wildomar residents cannot be a simple typographical error. If it were a typo, then she’s not very bright since a ballot statement must be carefully crafted , with each word carefully considered and counted.
And it begs the question, what is a “good ” Wildomar resident?
And who are the “less than good ” residents?
Is there another category of “bad” residents for whom Mayor Swanson is unwilling to work?
Wildomar has been my home for 40 years.
I am a Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Business Woman.
I care about where we are now and about the future of Wildomar
I have been a member of the Wildomar City Council since incorporation in 2008; I have served as Mayor, Mayor Pro Tem and as a Council member. I currently serve on the Parks Committee, Economic Development Committee, and on the Riverside League of Cities Executive committee. I serve as an alternate on PARSAC, RTA, and WRCOG. In the past I served the community on the MAC.
Only a “politician” would extensively cite, and value, such an exhaustive list of acronyms on their political resume.
Over my life I have held many leadership positions; President of our local Board of Realtors, a Director for the State Association, served on the States Local Government Relations Committee and the Land Use Committee, member of our Chamber of Commerce, a Rotarian and a lifetime member of The Friends of the Library. I managed a large office and have owned my own business.
Thank you for your consideration.
Remember your vote counts,
Even if you are a “bad” resident
VOTE Marsha Swanson.”
