Johnson withdraws from Congressional race

From page A1 | February 14, 2014 | 19 Comments

In a surprise announcement, Granite Bay resident Kris Johnson announced that she was withdrawing from the race to represent District 4 in Congress after announcing her candidacy only a week earlier.

Johnson, a Democrat, said she sustained an injury on Feb. 2 that, while not life threatening, would require a long rehabilitation period that precludes her from campaigning.

Johnson had hoped to unseat U.S. Rep. Tom McClintock.

Her announcement leaves McClintock with only one other challenger to date — Jason Mallory, a writer/journalist from South Lake Tahoe.

The candidate field also includes a correction. Auburn resident Bogdan “Bo” Ambrozewicz, is running for Governor, not Lieutenant Governor.

The list of candidates in the other races is unchanged.

    So "Diamond Joe" Harn has taken an ad out in the Mt. Destorter to launch his hoped for attempt to fleece the taxpayers, play grabby-feely with his staff and drag the county into lawsuits for his corruption and harrasment. What a deal for almost $1,000,000 for the next four years. While the list of his endorsements coma as no surprise, I am shocked that Brian Veerkamp is now come out of the closet as one of Joes bootlickers. I will reevaluate my vote the next time Brian runs for office. JOE MUST GO

    . . . Apparently it's not to be found online? Though not normally opening the PAPER paper, today I'll make an exception. Thanks.

    5:30 -5:30,much to long to be in the same room with Harn. I would still have to take a shower afterwards to remove the stench.

    Sorry if I offend any honest taxpayers. Joe' s vendettas against political " challenges" is hurting this county and especially the rural communities that buy him off for his favors.....ie:Pioneer Fire District. Highest bidder? You decide, I'm done. Kookie 65, get help soon, you are on the edge, stay away from public places, you scare me. Look in your own backyard and try to see the local corruption. Before you submit your drivel to a small town birdcage diaper , OMG, that's what I am doing! See ya all
