I remember listening on my crystal (boy scout) radio as Harry Truman campaigned in the the 1948 Presidential race. From the back someone shouted, "Give 'em Hell, Harry!"

Truman paused and shouted back, "I don't give them Hell. I just tell the truth about them and they think it's Hell".

So we tell the truth about Efren Carrillo.

But Carrillo has no record at all, and is backed by the Russian River gravel miners, the "Preservation" Ranch loggers and developers, and the industrial vineyards (just look where the big signs are).

And until Carrillo decided to run for Supervisor, he was a member of the Advisory Board of the Friends of the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria, the casino front group.

And because of these nefarious backers and no positive record, when one knows the truth about Carrillo, it does hurt like Hell.

But imagine how awful it would feel if Carrillo were rewarding his supporters as our Supervisor. So we are again left with the question, "Who will Carrillo turn his back on, his developer, logger, gravel-mining supporters, or us, the West County voters?"

Thatís why we should vote for Rue Furch, who has an environmental record and is supported by Sonoma County Conservation Action, the Sierra Club, the United Farm Workers, and the Latino Democratic Club.
