Gordon Chan: Nonpartisan races are partisan

November 15, 2013 

I thought that votes for the Modesto Irrigation District, Modesto City Council, Modesto school board, Ceres City Council, Waterford City Council, Oakdale school board, Turlock school board, Turlock Irrigation District, Valley Home school board, and Measure X are nonpolitical. Why did the Republican Party of Stanislaus County send me an official voter guide? Have we politicized our local elections?
