Thoughts on our delegation

December 3, 2012 

Under redistricting, the Modesto-Merced area has six representatives in Sacramento, and we think it is a pretty well-balanced delegation, with two Democrats, Sen. Cathleen Galgiani of Stockton and Assemblyman Adam Gray of Merced, and five Republicans: Sens. Anthony Cannella of Ceres and Tom Berryhill of Modesto and Assembly members Kristin Olsen of Modesto and Frank Bigelow of Madera. Bigelow’s 5th District stetches all along the Mother Lode and Sierra; part of it formerly was in Olsen’s old district. We anticipate these six will work collaboratively on agriculture and other shared priorities.

Modesto Bee is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
