Pat Paul, who lost the election as supervisor, is running for the second time for mayor of Oakdale. Do not forget what she did as a supervisor — the scandal over using a county credit card and accepting a free gift from a developer, which resulted in a $6,500 fine by the Fair Political Practices Commission.
As a councilwoman and supervisor for Oakdale, Paul has no accomplishments, no projects that left a mark. Paul has never stated how she would balance the budget. Is it going to be more tax? Paul also stated she was asked to run. Was it the same group of people who are dissatisfied with the layoffs in the police department?
The main issue now is that the city maintain a balanced budget.
