Here are the endorsements from his website.

Neither Polcan nor Risser are listed, but I just got a campaign flyer in the mail and both of them are pictured with Quieto.


Yes, I received the same flier. Interesting.

FWIW, which is likely $0.02, I'm supporting Mike Quieto. I like Scott McDonnell a lot, but the clerk's position is not about politics, where I agree with almost all of what Scott does. It is about clerical and administrative ability. Mike has shown me that he can do that in his work for the City, and I like that about him.

Plus, Mike did the first rule in elections: He asked me for my support. Scott did not. So it goes.

Hermann-Brown is my choice, mostly because she seems the most professional and least political. I don't like political hacks overseeing elections. This should really be a non-political office.

I think early voting is bad. Sure, if you are ill or will be out of town on election day, then early voting or absentee voting is fine, butthose are the only people who should vote early.

I think most early voting now is driven by top of the ticket, high money races and the political hacks. Early voting hurts the undercard races and candidates who only have enough money to get their message out late in the campaign. Many of these races don't get covered by media until the week before the election.

Quito is taking heat for that photo.

Doing shit like will almost definitely take my vote away. I don't really care much for endorsements, but I really think tricking the voters is a shady thing to do. I would be curious to hear his response.

I was voting for Quito based solely on meeting him on my street one day. I got a good vibe from him then but the photo thing is a little slicksterish.

Hermann-Brown complaining about some weekend work for a 90K job is a little hard to listen to.

Rosas is just an unpleasant person all around.
