I'd vote for her if someone can only tell me what she's done to earn that spot. She was mayor just before I left for college and when I came back for my parents. The only thing I've seen change is how much more violent the city has gotten. Someone was found dead next to Alvarez High. Minutes away from my niece's house and Caballero's. Has anyone called her out on why nothing is being done to help curb the violence?

she will probably be elected by the same idiot's that have kept her in office thus far. the picture of the american flag with the story about her in the californian today was sickening. the flag color's she's true too is red, white and GREEN! alas, no matter whether her son is in prison as a convicted gang member/felon or the worst mayor in the history of this barrio and has a personal agenda for fame and fortune, her 'homie's' care not. if she herself went to prison, they would still vote for her because she's a mexican and for no other sane reason--

9/24/2009 8:33:09 AM THE FOLLOWING IS TAKEN FROM DOROTHY/SALINAS ON POSTING TO TOPIX ON THE MONTEREY HERALD: However, in one way you have to give credit where credit is due. Caballero has progressed from less than mediocre and ineffective lawyer to worthless City Council member to publicity seeking ineffective Mayor to a completely worthless representative in Sacramento. Where was she during the latest State budget crisis? Where was she when State employees were laid off? Did you see her giving back her fat state paycheck? Or her remuneration for all her legislative "perks" like a fancy State paid for car? She is the precise reason why no one has any respect for the State legislature. And now she wants to advance further? Pleeeeze, give me a break!

Jeff Denham is one of the responsible leaders who has tried to keep CA State spending under control. What has Anna done? He has been a thron in the side of tax and wasteful spenders. We need to keep him.

Salinas has turned into a paradise in the last decade or so. It's safe to walk the streets. We can leave our doors open at night. No one is mugging the push cart vendors. East Las Casitas is a great developmental community. There are more jobs than people who can fill them. The community is united. Yes, I was wrong. I have seen the error of my ways. Thank you, Joaquin and Black Power for opening my eyes to the glory that is Anna "Mayor" Caballero. Send her up to the Senate where she can be with the blessed people who have made this wonderful state such an affordable place to life. Where companies are breaking down the doors to come here because of the wonderful incentives. Meanwhile, I'll be cruising Acosta Plaza for retirement property to invest in.

Questions/concerns regarding California issues:

Responses from Denham's office -Always (email & phone)-- even when we disagree on a bill/issue.

Responses from Caballero's office -Never, ever, ever.
(hello--hello---is anybody there???)

Sorry Anna, you and your staff blew it.
I'm giving my vote to someone who cares about their constituents.

Anna Caballero is one of the worst in California. She wasn't making it as a lawyer so someone found her a nice $100,000 a year job running Partners for Peace whose total revenue per year was about $300,000 per year. Caballero sucked out 1/3 of the revenue to pay herself. Add that to her Salinas compensation and "other" revenue.

She did such a horrible job raising her son he ended up robbing a Verizon Wireless store at gunpoint and got 5 years in prison. Some may argue the child of politicians are not their problem but did YOU read the probation report and read what kind of house that kid now young adult in prison grew up within?

Of course the probation report was hard to get a hold of and the media didn't bother reading it, copying it and writing about it and the courts "lost" it for a while. Unless he reoffends the probation report by law is no longer a public record. It is a public record for 90 days post sentencing then that is all. But who knew where is was unless you were persistent.

That report tells a very telling story that the media was uninterested in telling. How little politicians care about their children.

Since when did Caballero start caring about water in the Valley? Oh since she found out it was the key issue.

Its true, Sen. Denham not the best, but his office was responsive to questions. Caballero's office does not have that reputation. She is more of a let them eat cake politician.

Dear Black Power and Joaquin,
Before you speak about things like intelligence and idiots, you first might want to learn proper grammar.

Joaquin - I notice that you also are anonymous.
Why the "racist punk" remark? Is that really necessary?(hopefully we are more mature than that)
Please elaborate on Ms. Caballero's integrity in performing her duties as our "elected" Assembly person. What legislative items has she championed for her constituents?
Sorry, but I cant find anything that she has done to earn her salary. Perhaps you can enlighten us.
