Ap­pre­ci­ate all the votes you cast

Merced Sun-Star (Saturday) - - Opinion -

I have con­grat­u­lated Sen. Ted Gaines on his vic­tory in our race for a seat on the state Board of Equal­iza­tion (BOE). We both ran clean cam­paigns across the 30 coun­ties which com­prise Dis­trict 1. Our cam­paign came up a lit­tle short (51.4 per­cent to 48.6), but I am grate­ful to the 1,355,782 peo­ple who voted for me. I am par­tic­u­larly proud of be­ing the first Demo­cratic BOE can­di­date to win Merced County since 1998. Thank you to all who sup­ported my com­mon-sense, Cen­tral Val­ley mes­sage. – Tom Hal­li­nan, Ceres
