Remember Jim Holmes? He is the two-faced backstabber that plays nice in public and goes back behind people to get what he wants. Remember when he called Leonard Moty in Shasta County bad mouthing Kirk Uhler in an attempt to get Shasta to not follow suit with Placer against the Newsolini Lockdowns? At RightonDaily, we sure do.
IT is the opinion of this author that Jim Holmes is a lazy coward. Lazy in that he does not want to actually have to work for re-election and a coward because he is afraid to face a colleague Cindy Gustafson in a potential faceoff. We know Holmes is a terrible candidate, when despite being entrenched in office, upstart and lightly funded candidate Mike Murray was able to come within 4% of forcing a runoff – the closest margin Holmes has ever had.
I will bet the Placer County establishment wishes they took a second look at Murray given what Holmes has been doing since.
It has gotten back to me that Scott Alvord has been promoting conspiracy theories that could only have come from Jim Holmes. It is a well-known fact that Jim Holmes spends ton of time at the county offices and seems to busy himself with lots of events and meetings that keep him away from home most hours of the day. It may be simply unethical for Holmes to meddle in the Placer County Staff driven re-districting process or it could be downright illegal. It is the opinion of many that Holmes is leaking information from the process, which is infuriating county staff.
Any good conspiracy requires lackeys (aka flying monkeys) to give it life – this is where Scott Alvord and Suzanne Jones come in.
Alvord is claiming to people that all three Placer Maps that show the same two flourescent green sections of far-west Roseville in the lincoln-centric District 2 were done at the behest of D1 Supervisor Bonnie Gore. Alvord, a left-wing democrat who masquerades as a moderate, was salivating at the possibility of being the Placer County Sheriff’s Union guy to help them exact revenge against Gore because she dared to take a hard line on the negotiations with the Placer County Sheriff’s Union. The union has sent and is sending false attack ads mischaracterizing budget negotiations as “defunding the police” – aka anything that Gore did not want to give them constituted defunding the police.
The same dynamic exists in Placer SUP D2 as we have written previously. Except that with Alvord in D2, he is separated from all the people in Roseville he deceived about who he is. (Scott supports masks, vaccine mandates, gay marriage, abortion on demand, is soft on guns, taxes and spending – yet claims to be a moderate) In Sup D2 – Paul Joiner (A friend of many years) is positioning himself as the Sheriff’s Union Candidate against Shanti Landon. (Note: Right On Daily has not officially endorsed yet)
Alvord is now telling people “Many People have asked him to run in Sup D2 despite what Bonnie Did”. I am assuming the many people are the voices in Scott’s head and your intrepid blogger has confirmed that the only supervisor meddling in the process is the crazed Jim Holmes.
If Scott Alvord runs in Sup D2, it will be party time once again for Right on Daily. There may even be a two for one Christmas special.
Further, D4 supervisor Suzanne Jones who hired family members in to her district office while supporting ethics complaints against former Supervisor Kirk Uhler regarding his wife, appears to lack the mental acuity to discern what Jim Holmes is telling her. Jones appears to have bought a Holmes-fueled lie that Carol Garcia, the popular, well-respected and intelligent former Mayor of Roseville was drawn in to Sup D4 in an attempt by Uhler(!) to take her out in 2024!
Ummmm, Suzy – Carol Garcia has lived in Placer Sup D4 since your intrepid blogger moved to Roseville in 1997. And, Don’t worry Suzy – your intrepid blogger will be coming for you in 2024 regardless of who your opponent is. #therapy
It has to really suck to be Jim Holmes. He is burning people by the dozen as his sad personal world is shrinking around him. Tick Tock Jimbo, you ought to just shut up and go away while you still have some sort of legacy, but I digress…
