First of all, does the author of this editorial even live in Seaside? If not, b-u-t-t out. Seceondly, Rubio was also inexperienced at one time. Experience does not necessarily make for the best candidate. Look at all of the 'experienced' incumbents, whom voters can't wait to get rid of. Let's give Felix Bachofner a chance.

I'm disappointed that the Herald blew off Felix Bachofner without addressing the two big problems I have with the current Seaside leadership. The first is the matter of Ray Corpuz and his mysterious firing of the police chief Steve Cercone, who, according to city hall, did nothing wrong. The second is Seaside's poor handling of land use issues, which continue to stifle our economy and fail to improve the city's appearance. In addition the city was entertaining the threat of eminent domain to sell people's homes to a hotel developer. NO WAY am I voting for Rubio.

RUBIO IS WITHOUT A DOUBT the worst mayor on the peninsula, even with his so-called "extensive" experience. His buddy Ray Corpuz has a ton of government experience and is without a doubt the worst city manager in Seaside history.

Experience doesnt mean youre better, just look at do-nothing Tom Mancini. In the weekly when asked about his plan for seaside, his response was to ensure that blues in the park stays around. WTF is that? no idea about Seasides needs, just like Alexander. Reserve officer = weekend warrior, and for shopliftland sand city LOL its not like he is even keeping Seaside safe, he is patrolling those oh so hard streets of sand city , population 200.

The Herald just proved why they are the worst paper in the county. They have no clue about what Seaside needs.

VOTE FOR FELIX, EDWARDS AND MITCHELL ON NOVEMBER 2ND

What a shame that the Herald came out for Rubio. He is one of the slickest politicians on the peninsula and experience doesn't trump everything else. It's time for the winds to blow in a new direction. Let some fresh air into Seaside City Hall and with it some new faces.

Vote Bachofner and Edwards for sure. Bring transparency back to City Hall. A change in Mayor most likely would bring about ridding City Hall of the inept Corpuz and the hiring of a new and more capable City Manager.

I agree...... What is the Herald talking about? After reading that article, I am not sorry that I cancelled the Hearld paper. Seaside is so ready for some new leadership. I have been watching a lot of the old Seaside Council meetings online and the meetings are just laughable at best. Seaside deserves better and I hope that Felix gets an opportunity to lead Seaside in a new direction. If he doesn't, then we can vote him out in the next election. If you don't vote for change then you should not complain when nothing better happens to our city.

There ARE times when the Herald disappoints me, and this IS sadly one of those times. It is shameful that Mr. Bachofner is so easily dismissed by the Herald.

WHAT THE HELL DID THE HERALD AND THE WEEKLY ENDORSE RUBIO FOR? for the gangs and drugs running rampant in our city? for wasting tons of money on the auto mall which has no customers? for no transparency in government and public mistrust? for being a sanctuary city for illegals?

im mexican, i was born and raised in seaside, and yes the city is a sanctuary for illegals and yes i can back that up. alot of the gangsters in seaside are illegals or children of illegals, either way its a product of illegal immigration and seaside is a sanctuary city just like salinas.

This site lists Salinas as a sanctuary city. http://www.sanctuarycities.info/sanctuary_sta...

This one does not. http://www.ojjpac.org/sanctuary.asp

Neither one lists Seaside. So again, please cite your sources!

After having lived in Seaside for the last 12 years and watched the long line of idiots parade through the city: L. McClair, T. Brown, D. Jordan, D.Choate', etc. Does anyone remember that Carmel's own Rich Gullien was assistant city manager?
Seaside needs new leadership more than we a mayor and city manager who can't even try to tell the truth.
Vote all incumbents out!

All you have to do is ask the mailman... I know it sounds kind of odd, but they see things in the neighborhood that other people don't even notice. Why are there so many storage sheds in so many back yards in Seaside? Many of these are built just to house the illegals. On the street that my Dad lives on, there are at least three places that are housing illegals. If you call the Seaside City Hall about it, their answer is that it is not a priority at this time because they are understaffed. What? I agree... vote them all out this election. It is time for this city to stand up and do the right thing and follow all the same rules, city codes, and laws they expect us to. In other words, "Do your damn job!"

oh my. youre one of those government brainwashed people who doesnt believe anything unless its an "official" WEBSITE OR BUREAUCRAT that says so.
as a mexican in the community, who happens to know family after family of illegals whom myself, my cousins, sisters and friends associate with, and with whom i have personally asked the question of why out of all the places to come they chose seaside, they have basically all said that its because other family and friends who were already here told them they can live in seaside with no problems from local police or government, seaside is a latino town and theres jobs. they are welcomed in seaside where they can recieve healthcare at the clinic (who speak mainly in spanish even though its run by the county), shop at numerous latino stores and markets in town and can go for weeks in seaside and never have to speak english, if thats not sanctuary, where a city opens its arms and welcomes you, then what is?
let me guess your definition. government officially declares it.
i dont need a bureaucrat to tell me what i already know. cite my sources? the illegal residents of the city of seaside.

OK, let's get something straight. I never said there are no illegals in Seaside. They're everywhere. But a Sanctuary City is one that officially protects illegals, and Seaside has no such official policy.
