IT'S OFFICIAL: Patterson wins final vote, margin of victory 184

Elizabeth responds to the last-minute hit-pieces mailed by her opponent: "We are for clean campaigns. We are disappointed in the 'hit pieces.'  When Patterson is Mayor, we will get clean campaign ordinances."

Election day special: see Elizabeth's recent e-alerts:


Thank you Benicia

Check out the new poem by Benicia's
Poet Laureate, Joel Fallon
"A Different Kind of Mayor -
Plan the Work - Work the Plan"

Recent comment from a supporter:
"Bill Whitney voted to move the Seeno project forward. Elizabeth voted NO. What are all these mailers saying that Whitney wants to slow the project down?"
Elizabeth's response: Bill voted against my ordinance which would have restricted big box stores in Benicia. Bill voted for the Seeno project to move forward (vote was 3-2 - Messina, Whitney, Hughes). Just the facts, folks, just the facts..

I BELIEVE it is time for a new kind of Mayor, time for a different kind of politics. Benicia needs a Mayor who is independent of special interests, someone who is a leader in embracing open and clean government policies, someone who keeps the public's interest first, and appoints commissioners based on expertise and no conflict of interest.
