Issue: May 24, 2018

Morning, readers!

Are you prepared for this June's primary election? It's just around the corner ... So, for those who need a little, uh, primer on the primary, we've done some of the homework for you. This week's Primary Issue breaks down some of the hotly contested local races—supervisor seats, assessor, auditor-controller—plus we take a look at the Congressional candidates' positions on a variety of important issues. We also offer our take on those races and a few others in our endorsements.

In other news: If you've received a PACE loan to install a solar array on your house, you may have been sold lies; an Oroville group has plans for a mobile hygiene unit to provide showers and laundry services for the homeless community; and CN&R Editor Melissa Daugherty takes the mayor to task for silencing public speech.

Till next time,

Meredith J. Cooper, managing editor
