June 2010 post-election haikus ...

Alas, I did not post my recommendations in time for the June 8, 2010 elections. I hope my negligence didn't leave both of my readers mentally paralyzed & unable to vote, thereby skewing the results of this sparsely-attended election.

Hopefully, the unique and valuable perspectives so briefly & concisely stated in my post-election haiku poems will at least partially make up for the damage caused by my brief inattention.

MEASURE F:
Voters increase funding for
Russian River Fire Protection District


Measure F, F-Yes!
So Fire Dept. can save our homes
(which are STILL worthless).

PROPOSITION 16:
Voters reject PG&E's thinly veiled attempt
to prevent communities from establishing public utilities.


You can "offer" us
the "right to vote," but you can't
make us vote your way.

DISTRICT ATTORNEY:
Jill Ravitch ejects incumbent Stephan Passalacqua

Too few convictions,
Too many injustices,
un-spellable name.

4th DISTRICT SUPERVISOR:
How Mike McGuire crushed Debra Fudge

Pound lots of pavement;
Make thousands of facebook friends;
Add lots of money.
