    Please explain

    From the vernacular of the "Old West," I'm calling out Susan Rowe, chair of the Madera County Democratic Party, and William Fjellbo, district five officer of the Madera County Democratic Party, to give us their official opinion, based upon the Democratic party platform, to explain the following ...
