Sally Moreno has my vote for DA

Election season is upon us. The position of Madera County District Attorney is critically important to the safety and security of all Madera County residents.

It is clear to me there is only one real option – Sally Moreno.

Sally is an involved member of her church and our community, seeking to make Madera County better. She is a proven prosecutor and leader.

Sally was born and raised in the San Joaquin Valley. She has worked as a police officer for the Los Angeles Police Department and is a decorated Desert Storm Army Military Police veteran.

This background gives her an understanding of law enforcement, leadership, and management that no other candidate possesses.

Sally graduated from San Joaquin College of Law, and has been a prosecutor for more than 20 years. Sally’s values are just like yours and mine – she is honest, she has integrity, and she is hard-working.

Sally Moreno has my vote.

Gary Gilbert, retired Madera County District 5 Supervisor, North Fork

Campaign funds issue in race

A great deal has been said by Tom Wheeler’s opponent for the District 5 seat on the Madera County Board of Supervisors about where Tom raises his campaign funds.

His opponent says that he himself is funding his own campaign. I suppose that would be very nice to be able to do that, but I prefer a man like Tom who has spent most of his life actually working for his money in Madera County rather than a man who has brought his money to the county so that he can buy a seat on the Board of Supervisors.
