Nice Hat.

With the El Dorado County Republican Party meeting specifically to render an endorsement in AD05, you’d think that Jason Paletta, hat and all, would have been there? Nope.

Your intrepid blogger received several calls that Paletta was at a local School Board Meeting. I get that Paletta is trying to lay claim to the groups allegedly backing Jonathan Zachreson (who has endorsed Joe Patterson for AD05, thank you for doing that, Jonathan).

Paletta was bloviating at a local school board meeting instead of attempting to make his case to the El Dorado County Republican Party. The lapse in judgment is #EPICFAIL worthy. Perhaps Paletta did not understand the stakes? Once again, allow your intrepid blogger to school yet another unprepared marginal candidate:

Now that the El Dorado GOP has endorsed Joe Patterson, the path is now clear for the CAGOP Board to endorse Joe Patterson.

What does this mean? Patterson will be on the ballot pamphlet as the endorsed GOP Candidate. Patterson will get “member communication” mail for pennies on the dollar, and Patterson will get access to all of the information the CAGOP has. While the CAGOP does not have much to offer in direct support – the bulk mail permit and the ballot pamphlet are worth tens of thousands of dollars in equivalent impact. (This is why David Stafford Reade is pulling out all the stops to try and screw the grassroots and Kevin Kiley as well)

By making a felony stupid decision to skip the El Dorado GOP meeting, Paletta just handed the above to Joe Patterson on a silver platter. Perhaps he should shred his candidate paperwork instead.

The old Jesse Unruh Rule: You will never talk a man out of running for office or getting married. To tell you that this sort of occurrence is exceptionally rare is an understatement.

AS you may recall, your intrepid blogger was involved in all of the school board races and I know who helped and who did not. Few did more than Joe Patterson. If you sit on a school board in AD05, it is time to Join up with Joe Patterson. You have a choice, someone who actually spent money and rallied support to elect school board members or 15,000 Facebook Likes. Choose wisely.

Joe Patterson Releases Strong Local Education Coalition in Campaign for State Assembly
Rocklin, CA – – Today, Joe Patterson announced a strong coalition of local education leaders in his campaign for State Assembly. Placer County was one of the first areas in the state to reopen in-person instruction after Gov. Gavin Newsom directed schools to close in March 2020. Joe took immediate action locally to help ensure kids returned to school as early as possible.

“The broad coalition of education leaders supporting Joe shows he has been a strong local advocate for our students. We support Joe so strongly because he has a clear history of taking action to support our community’s children and schools. As a father with children in local schools, Joe understands that the challenges our schools are facing include keeping them open to in-person learning,” said Rocklin School Board Member Tiffany Saathoff. “Joe was a leader in efforts to reshape the school board in a way that puts students over politics. That’s why we need him at the State Capitol.”

Patterson’s education coalition includes leaders from Roseville and Rocklin two of the largest cities in the newly drawn 5th Assembly District including:

Tiffany Saathoff, Rocklin School Board Member
Rachelle Price, Rocklin School Board Member
Julie Hupp, Rocklin School Board Member

The past 24 months have been hard for students and parents and we need someone who will take action against special interests at the Capitol. The individuals who understand education know there will be no better advocate for our students than Joe Patterson and that’s why education leaders like me are supporting Joe for State Assembly. I will be going door to door encouraging voters to vote for Joe because I know he did that for our community’s children when they needed him.”

The newly drawn 5th Assembly District’s population is split between Placer and El Dorado Counties. For more information about Joe’s campaign, including the latest news please visit

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).

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.

That’s why I support Joe for State Assembly.”
