Modesto Bee Kinda Sorta Makes Dual Endorsement in Stanislaus Supe Race

Why choose just one? The Modesto Bee sorta threw its weight behind both incumbent Jim DeMartini and Patterson mayor Luis Molina in an oped for Stanislaus County's Distrct 5 race.

"Normally, we recommend only one candidate for any seat – after all, only one person can fill the District 5 seat on the Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors. But in the June 7 election, voters can elect both." 

Well, sorta. The top two finishers square off again in November and the Bee seems to think these are the two that ought to compete. So when pressed the Bee concludes "If we must choose one now, it’s DeMartini. He puts enormous effort into his job, works hard for constituents and frequently makes good policy decisions. He’s been a good supervisor and has earned the right to continue."

Ok then.
