Assemblyman Paul Cook placed second in the June Primary with Gregg Imus placing first. It is no surprise that Imus received the most Republican votes in the Barstow community. He participated in the Congressional Debate in March and has confirmed his attendance at the Meet the Candidates Forum slated for Oct. 12, 2012 at the Hi Desert Word Center on Soapmine Road.
Gregg Imus has travelled to Barstow and met with the people no fewer than 15 times. His signs were everywhere during the primary and again for the General Election on Nov. 6. Imus has visited with our senior citizens at the Senior Center, attended Barstow College’s scholarship event, knocked on doors in Skyline East, attended various club meetings, walked door to door to meet with local businesses, and discussed important issues with guests at numerous private home meet and greets.
So where in the world is Imus’ opponent, Paul Cook? He did not participate in the Congressional debate, nor has he even responded to a registered letter invitation for Meet the Candidates. Before the primary, one-fourth of Cook’s campaign funds came from special interest groups, including several Indian gaming tribes outside the district. Cook had lots of money to spend, yet had no presence in Barstow. I believe this is exactly what Barstow can expect from Paul Cook after the election as well.
Gregg Imus cares about the people of Barstow. Let’s vote for the person who has clearly demonstrated an interest in our community.
