Many more problems with Madueño

I find it interesting that The Bee's endorsement of Virginia Madueño for Riverbank mayor listed several concerns about her performance and only one concern about her challenger, Richard O'Brien.

She has led this town into financial demise, helped a major businesses move 200-plus jobs to Modesto and began a survey to seek a possible seat on the county Board of Supervisors.

When our community's international festival failed to materialize, we suddenly had a Mexican Independence Day event with Virginia's campaign signs front and center.

Does anyone but me wonder who provided the last-minute funding for that event? Typically, all council members are invited to a community event. The only one at this one was Virginia. Very interesting.

She says that she is for business. I am in business and I don't see it. Loyal? No. Conflict of interest? Yes. Self-serving? Absolutely!
