Dear Friends,

Earlier this month, I announced my campaign for the 5th Assembly District.  You can read the full release here. Since then I have been humbled by the amount of support I have received including the endorsements of Senator Jim Nielsen, Assemblymember James Gallagher and many other local leaders and small-business owners.

All of this support makes me feel confident about winning this election, but I know that I won’t be able to do it without your support. On Thursday, February 17th from 5-6:30 PM we will be having our campaign kickoff event at the Pink Martini in Rocklin. You can download the flyer and RSVP by clicking the image below.

I hope you will be able to attend! However, if you can’t and you would still like to support you can mail in a contribution to the address on the form or you can donate HERE.

You can also share this event on Facebook and have your friends sign up for campaign updates at www.JoePatterson.com.

Thank you for your support! I look forward to a successful campaign and representing you and our communities in the Assembly!

Thanks,

Joe

Campaign 101. Usually endorsements are not worth more than the one vote they represent. Others, signify some power and access to groups of stakeholders.

James Gallagher is a conservative that has campaigned with Kevin Kiley all over California – and has sued Gavin Newsom successfully a few times. Gallagher matters.

Up next is Gentleman Jim. My guess is that Patterson is going to scoop up the influential endorsements and those will contribute to a prohibitive money and support advantage (that 15,000 Facebook Likes just can’t buy).

Senator Jim Nielsen Endorses Councilman Joe Patterson For Assembly
Rocklin, Calif.– Today, Republican small-business owner Joe Patterson announced receiving the endorsement of California State Senator Jim Nielsen in his campaign for State Assembly.

The endorsement is especially notable because in the State Senate, Senator Nielsen represents the City of Roseville, the largest city in the newly drawn 5th Assembly District.

“Joe is a strong conservative who understands the key issues facing our community. Joe understands the importance of building more water storage, improving fire protection and keeping criminals behind bars,” said Senator Jim Nielsen. “We need more leaders like Joe Patterson to take on the key issues to get our state back on track. That’s why I support Joe for State Assembly.”

Joe Patterson has quickly established himself as the leading candidate to replace Assemblyman Kevin Kiley who recently announced his campaign for Congress. Patterson most recently announced major endorsements from the Mayor of the City of Rocklin, the Mayor of the City of Lincoln as well as neighboring State Assemblyman James Gallagher.

The newly drawn 5th Assembly District is split between Placer and El Dorado Counties and includes the incorporated cities of Cameron Park, El Dorado Hills, Lincoln, Placerville, Rocklin, and Roseville.

Yesterday, I got an article sent to me.

It was the announcement for a guy who got some notoriety for starting a re-open schools group. I did not know who he was as in the time I spent helping clear out the Teacher’s Union Moonbats from three School Boards in Placer County, I never heard his name.

Therein lies the rub. For so many years, I have seen people come out of nowhere and break in to the political scene.

One signature belongs to Jonathan Zachreson, a parent of three near Sacramento, who would often find his children asleep during their online school classes.

He said he voted for Newsom in 2018, but he’s since launched a 12,000-member Facebook group advocating for the return of schools and is an active member in the original 4,000-member Let Them Play group on Facebook, both of which have evolved into pro-recall groups.

Red Flag Number one. A democrat as of 2018. Unless he has a lifetime A Rating from California Pro-Life and a lifetime A+ rating from the NRA as a democrat (or NPP) while registered in another party, I have a rule that it takes at least 10 years to be credible as a Republican for a major office.

So often these boutique candidates overshoot the target. My guess is this guy thinks he is going to abuse the recall gavin lists and the lists he created from his facebook group with which to mount a campaign for Assembly.

Anyone that participated with this guy should have a bad taste in their mouth as it is clear that he always had an agenda the whole time he was engaged in the reopen schools effort.

Did he walk precincts for the Roseville High School Board Members? No.

Rocklin? No.

Roseville City School District? No.

Western Placer Unified? No.

Has he ever held office? No.

Has he ever done anything to advance the GOP? Help elect others? No.

Central Committee? Member of a GOP Club? No.

So now the fact that he voted for Newsom in 2018 becomes a much bigger deal. It is also made worse that if elected, he will be serving with Newsom (for whom he voted).

My guess is that as I look in to this guy, I am going to discover a stalking horse candidate. We shall see. AD05 looks like just another Republican Primary where 15 candidates will jump in as always.

CA AD-05 Update: Frank Bigelow, Country Club Liberal?

 5th Assembly District Race, CA AD-05 Race, Frank Bigelow, Rico Oller  Comments Off on CA AD-05 Update: Frank Bigelow, Country Club Liberal?

Frank Bigelow. Have you heard of him?

He is a moderate Republican supervisor from the very conservative county of Madera. Madera is one of the top 5 most Republican Counties in California.

Bigelow is a tax-and-spend liberal who is in love with High Speed Rail. Public records show that love affair lasted for several years and numerous votes – now that the whole world knows that High Speed Rail is a train wreck, Bigelow now stands courageously opposed to it.

Bigelow’s morally flexible stands on taxation also include his very public opposition to Prop 26. Prop 26 was put on the ballot to prevent the loopholes the money-addicted leaders in the state legislature were using to raise taxes under other names. Prop 26 prevents “Fees” aka taxes by other names from being raised without a 2/3 vote of the State Legislature.

Maybe it is more appropriate to call Frank Bigelow a liberal?

It doesn’t stop there. Bigelow has a bizarre notion of history and some special comments on illegal immigration. In October at Mt. Brow Vineyard (in Sonora), in the presence of some 100 guests, a newspaper and a radio reporter – Bigelow asked “Who will pick these grapes?” in response to a question about illegal immigration.

Bigelow’s moral flexibility continued as he boldly stated, “You can’t build a fence to keep people out. Remember what Reagan said to Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”

I’ve never heard Ronald Reagan invoked to rationalize illegal immigration, ever.

Frank Bigelow has distinguished himself in the annals of candidates I have seen over the 15 years I have been in this game… as a service to Bigelow, I’d like to remind him that the Berlin wall was built by communists to entrap the people of East Germany. A border fence is built to ensure that people enter the USA legally versus the Berlin Wall which was built to imprison the people of East Germany.

Frank Bigelow is just not ready for Prime-Time – let’s put him on a train to nowhere.
