Marysville Appeal-Democrat - - LOCAL -

State Sen. Jim Nielsen, 4th Dis­trict Repub­li­can in­cum­bent, took a strong lead over his chal­lenger, Demo­crat Phillip Kim as of late Tues­day evening.

Nielsen said that de­spite what things may have looked like through­out the elec­tion, it was a good day.

“It’s been a good day for Amer­ica, it’s a good day even for Cal­i­for­nia,” Nielsen said.

He said he was de­lighted to see John Cox “run such a good race” for gov­er­nor, show­ing that Cal­i­for­nia isn’t ex­actly what peo­ple thought it to be.

He said he is hope­ful his con­stituents will bet­ter un­der­stand what has come of the bud­get and what needs to be done in the fu­ture. He also said that safety in the com­mu­nity is key and he will con­tinue to work to­ward re­form­ing pub­lic wel­fare.

He felt op­ti­mistic the re­sult would hold.

“I feel that I did ev­ery­thing I pos­si­bly could to let peo­ple know where I stand on al­most ev­ery is­sue and what I thought about the fu­ture of Yuba County,” Vasquez said. “I still feel we have the bright­est fu­ture of any county in Cal­i­for­nia. All we have to do is stay the course.”

Saun­ders said she also felt op­ti­mistic about her chances, be­ing that the two can­di­dates were neck and neck through­out the night.

“I want to thank ev­ery­one who lis­tened to me while I was go­ing door to door and thank ev­ery­one for go­ing out and vot­ing for both of us. That’s the main part of be­ing a good cit­i­zen, it’s part of our re­spon­si­bil­ity to
