We must be on every list, because we are getting inundated with telephone calls from all sorts of political groups. But a bit unusual today, I got a solicitation call out of the blue from Rep. Jerry McNerney, D-Stockton, himself, and then an hour later Santa Monica Mayor Richard Bloom and his wife knocked on our front door because he’s campaigning for State Assembly. Turns out McNerney was a math major, which makes me like him. Bloom I knew and liked already, so I let him put a sign on our front lawn. Not every day we get face and phone time with some good politicians.
