Santa Clara Sheriff candidate

Government-unions are scrambling to maintain their hold on the taxpayer's wallet. This has come to a head in San Jose, where unions have sued and prevailed against the overwhelming vote of the taxpayers.

"The case stemmed from the unions' lawsuit filed a day after 70 percent of San Jose voters approved Measure B in June 2012.

The measure comes at a time when cities throughout California and around
the country are grappling with soaring costs for guaranteed pensions
that have been disappearing in private employment. Several cities, such
as Stockton, San Bernardino and Detroit, have filed for bankruptcy in
part because of growing pension costs and have been unable to legally
roll back pension promises they can no longer afford."

This give pause to consider the candidacy of Kevin Jensen, running for Santa Clara County sheriff, as the government-union's chosen candidate.
