Deb Fudge gets Jared Huffman endorsement


Windsor Council member Deb Fudge, a candidate for the northern Sonoma County board of supervisor’s seat, has received the endorsement of U.S. Congressman Jared Huffman.

Fudge announced the backing from Huffman, who cited her experience, passion for community projects and “track record of success in Sonoma County.”

Deb Fudge.

Deb Fudge.

Huffman, D-San Rafael, represents the 2nd Congressional District of California, which takes in Windsor and almost all the supervisorial district Fudge is hoping to represent.

Huffman pointed to Fudge’s near 20 years of public service, including serving five times as mayor of Windsor; her role in developing the Windsor Town Green; and her past chairmanship of the Sonoma Marin Area Rail Transit board.

Fudge is running for the third time for supervisor of the Fourth District, which includes parts of north Santa Rosa, along with Wikiup-Larkfield, Windsor, Healdsburg and Cloverdale.

Incumbent Mike McGuire has decided not to seek re-election. Instead, he is vying for the seat held by state Sen. Noreen Evans D-Santa Rosa, who is not running for office.

Evans also has endorsed Fudge.

Also in the North County supervisorial race are James Gore, a former assistant chief in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service; Healdsburg Councilman Tom Chambers; former Healdsburg Councilman Pete Foppiano; and Keith Rhinehart, a former UPS supervisor and part-time teacher.

    Fudge is a failed politician is so many ways. It is difficult to see how she has the nerve to characterize her track record as a success. It has been a total failure.

    Elephant states ” So sad because she once had promise to be a politician that actually worked for the people.”

    I wish to point out that ALL politicians here in Sonoma County promise that. And then after then get elected, they abandon that idea and go with the one that gets them the most money.

    Just look at the recent debacle about guaranteeing that the union honcho’s keep getting paid.

    The Fudge motto: “Never save for tomorrow what you can spend today”
    Or “when short on cash for a worthless project – Borrow”. “It is only money”!

    Deb, the socialist is the ideal candidate for the extreme left who want more and more and give less and less.

    The Windsor Town Green has turned out to be an economic disaster with vacancies and empty buildings. The unsmart train is no where in sight and billions have been spent on a little train going nowhere and serving nobody.

    With her record its a wonder Winer from New York hasn’t enforced.

  5. James Bennett says:

    I often wonder.

    Is it a selfish thing?

    A not very smart thing?

    A lack of discernment thing?

    A brain washed thing?

    I know it’s a treasonous thing.

    I know it’s not a good thing for our well being…

    this ‘Progressive’ thing.

    Lets find out where she stands on the union issue that is controlling every decision that is being made by the supervisors.

    Also if the people that she works directly with do not support her…….enough said!

    “Anybody but Fudge!!!”

  8. Elephant says:

    An endorsement from do-nothing Huffman is reason enough for many to support anybody else. But then, Fudge’s part in the white elephant that is the DUMB train already cost her a lot of support. So sad because she once had promise to be a politician that actually worked for the people.
