Time is right for John Allard

As someone that represented the Placer County area for more than 20 years, I am very aware of the community leaders in the region. There is not a single person who resides in the 4th Assembly District better-qualified to represent this area than John Allard. John was my Chief of Staff for 11 years so he knows how the building works. John has served on the Roseville City Council since 2003 and has won election twice. Since 2005 he and his wife, Lisa, have run a small service-oriented business in Placer County. All of these things combine to make John the best-qualified candidate to serve in the Assembly. While I can’t comment on the way it will be viewed in other parts of the state, I can tell you that the conservative voters of Placer, El Dorado, Alpine and Sacramento counties will not respond well to the idea of a single household receiving two legislative paychecks. This is what people are talking about. It has been the subject of consistent media attention and it will be a major factor in the upcoming election. I encourage you to join me in supporting John Allard for the Assembly. He is the right candidate at the right time to step right in and fight for the values that we share.
