Monday Midday Briefs

Matt Rexroad to keep his job as head of Meridian Pacific

Matt Rexroad got sworn in today as County Supervisor for the 3rd District. Reporter Josh Fernandez in this morning’s Woodland Daily Democrat writes:

 

Rexroad, who heads the political consulting firm Meridian Pacific out of Sacramento, said he will juggle both duties as supervisor and CEO of the company, without sacrificing his effectiveness as a representative of the 3rd District.

“I will never give up my business,” Rexroad said. “That’s not gonna happen.”

 

This brings up an interesting question, obviously Rexroad’s company can continue to survive with Rexroad dealing the bulk of his time to his duties for his 3rd District Constituents. On the other hand, does being a political consultant and operating a political consulting firm while at the same time being an elected official strike more than just me as being a bit unseemly?

Congratulations to Joel Butler, Yolo County’s New Assessor

Matt Rexroad wrote in his blog this morning, “It has been a long time since the campaign began. I am happy it is over.”

Joel Butler has to be thinking it has been a long time since the campaign was over, I am happy to begin. Butler gets sworn in as the new county assessor replacing Dick Fisher after 8 years working in the office as the chief deputy. Butler won a resounding victory last June over Bob Milbrodt, a margin that belied the bitterness of the charges thrown about by Mr. Milbrodt during the campaign.

Dixon Downs to the Ballot?

The Davis Enterprise and the Daily Republic are reporting this afternoon:

The [Dixon] City Council here will take a second look this week at its decision to allow a controversial state-of-the-art horse racing track and entertainment complex in town, and either will rescind that approval or send the issue to the voters.

This comes amid a petition effort by citizens groups that produced over 1,000 signatures to place the issue on the ballot. This effort has now forced the Dixon council to reconsider their earlier 4-1 vote to approve the controversial race track.

  5. What’s interesting is that I’ve never liked the initiative system at the state level, but it seems to work at the local level a lot better.

  9. Rexroad should resign from his polical consultant group. What he does in this business as a private citizen is border line unethical. The fact that an elected leader is the head of such a business is just plain wrong. Follow the money.
