Who is "swift boating" Carlos?

That would be Citizens for Fair and Responsible Pension Reform who initially supported him and gave him money. They felt betrayed.

Dear Editor: I have been living in San Mateo County for over 35 years and I have seen changes and improvements all over the county especially with growth, population and political leadership at many and all levels. There is no better example of positive political leadership that has helped San Mateo County grow then Memo Morantes, who is currently running for San Mateo County Board of Supervisors. Memo Morantes has been essential in the growth of education as a member of the San Mateo County Board of Education and has been a member in many committees in the community that help us grow and flourish for the future. Just in East Palo Alto and Redwood City alone he has helped with many functions and is a strong and vital member of the Latino Leadership Council and the Redwood City/San Mateo County Chamber of Commerce. Mr. Morantes has shown what leadership, love and devotion can do when we all work together and our hearts are achieving the same goal, that is why I am supporting Memo Morantes for San Mateo County Board of Supervisors and I encourage everyone to do the same to help San Mateo County to continue to flourish and grow for our future as well as for our children’s and grandchildren’s future.

I know. The Republican Party (San Mateo GOP) is totally OUT TO LUNCH. Although most political parties are confused about Mail in Ballots. After listenning to a talk from the voting people at Crystal Springs. Absontee ballots are no longer called that it's just "Mail in Ballots". And becoming more popular every election. It saves money for the County and gives you 30 days to vote. Meaning more time to get to the voters for the political parities before one votes. And they screw it up by note sending out the Recomendations in time. At least thats how I see it..
