Please note--these are the only candidates and ballot measures that we have taken a position on and you are likely to receive bogus slate mailers in your mail box or in your e-mail box. Those are paid political ads and usually do NOT reflect the opinions of the Madera County Democratic Party or the California Democratic Party. Please disregard them.
