Our Views: Politicians are talking, and we’re listening

Our elected representatives have opinions on just about everything, frequently sharing them with The Bee’s editorial board via press releases. Some of those releases are serious, such as Assemblywoman Kristin Olsen’s impassioned plea for all parties to begin “working diligently over the next five days to negotiate a final (water) bond” that actually does something. Others are a bit fluffier. All of them include talking points, and we’re happy to pass them along ... with a talking point or two of our own.
