OPINION: Rancho Santa Fe Republican Women Federation’s ballot recommendations


rsfrwlogo2The RSF Republican Women Federation board has taken the following positions on some of the nonpartisan candidates and propositions:

  • Chief Justice of the CA Supreme Court, Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye, NO
  • Assoc. Justice of the SC, Ming W. Chin, NO; Carlos R. Moreno, NO, definitely NO.
  • Judith D. McConnell: NO;
  • Manuel A Ramirez: YES;
  • Carol D. Corrington: YES;
  • David G. Sills: NO;
  • William W. Bedsworth: YES;
  • Eileen C. Moore: NO;
  • Judge of the Superior Court, Office No. 20, Jim Miller, YES, definitely.

State Superintendent of Public Instruction, this is VERY important, write in, DIANE LENNING. As this race is “non-partisan,” the June Primary resulted the top two vote-getters for November— both Democrats. DIANE LENNING is the far more qualified candidate. Write her in and be sure to spell her name correctly, DIANE LENNING.
State Propositions: #19, NO, NO, NO; #20, YES; #21, NO; #22, WOW! Been both ways on this, Yes, seemed the obvious answer, however after thoroughly studying the language, pros and cons, believe that NO is the best choice. #23, YES; #24, NO; #25, NO, NO, #26, YES,YES; #27, NO. In summary, NO: 19, 21, 22, 24, 25, 27. YES: 20, 23 and 26. Also, local Prop A: YES.

We have not included the more obvious partisan choices and in some non-partisan races, we would be promoting our RSFRWF members. For additional information and questions, please call: Brett or Nick Dieterich, 858-756-4501 or
