Today's date 11-03-2010, The polls did speak for themselves! Congratulations to Mayor Morrison! I never had any doubt that he would get re-elected. He is absolutely the best choice for NC. It was very arrogant of Sotelo-Solis to even attempt running for this position. She is unqualified, inexperienced and immature. She needs to build her resume with actual accomplishments instead of fluff that has no substance. She ran a very negative campaign that back fired on her. but then again that is all she had. She had nothing she could call her own so she had to attempt to smear Mayor Morrison. Her slimy campaign manager tried to get the media to delve into the Mayor's personal family life. Shame on you Alejandra and that classless campaign manager of yours! Now it remains to be seen if Alejandra will learn a lesson from this an try to become a better person to work with Mayor Morrison and his efforts to continue moving the city forward, or will she continue to be her immature, egotistical, slimy politician that she has become in the two short years as a council person. Only time will tell. Congratulations to Mayor Morrison. Keep on keeping on!

I don't know if this poll does any speaking, Jack Bauer. Perhaps there are a lot of people with time on their hands to spend it clicking the poll button during the weekday?

What I do know is that the negative comments that seem to crop up on all of these boards are from Morrison supporters. Calling your candidate's opponent a "scumbag"
is just pathetic. It's nothing like the "Si se puede" racist comment our favorite actor from the series 24 just wrote. There are classless comments and racist comments, and Ron Morrison supporters use them both.

It leaves me to wonder why they claim that Alejandra needs to grow up. Perhaps these negative stone throwers should heed some of their own advice.

However, since Keifer Sutherland brought it up, it's only right for Moses to respond.

What has Ron done in his nearly 20 years in office? He has fed at the public trough as a career politician. Maybe he should go out and find a real job next year.

These past couple of years have been admittedly great for National City. But for Ron to act as if he is Moses and parted the Red Sea to make it happen is just absurd.

Ron, you're not Moses; you did not part the Red Sea. You are a member of a council that has committed to doing great things for National City as a group.

Well I think the poll speaks for it's self. Most people are impressed with Mayor Morrison's accomplishments and not with Sotelo-Solis' rhetoric. Sotelo-Solis has accomplished nothing in her short political career. She has not been a politician long enough to gain enough experience to be mayor. She can hardly handle the position of council person. She is in way over her head. Will someone please tell me what she has accomplished? As far as I know, she has accomplished NOTHING! All she has done is pump her fist and yell, "Si se puede." Yes we can, what? She needs to sit back, shut her mouth, and learn from those much more experienced than her. If she is not careful she will join the ranks of Mike Aguirre and Bruce Henderson who have run for every political office there is and have lost. I truly believe those who support her do not know why they are supporting her. You Alejandra supporters need to ask yourselves, What are her qualifications? What has she accomplished? If you are honest with yourself you will realize she is way too ambitious and not qualified yet.

Ron Morrison's hard work and dedication has shown in how the city has improved. Why bring in a person with no experience to mess all that up. Keep National City on the right track VOTE RON MORRISON!!!!!

Alejandra for Mayor!! She is competent and experienced!!Ron Morrison needs to stop taking credit for the positive changes that have occurred in NC. Alejandra was a key player in making these changes. It would not have happened without her. If she can do this for us as a council member, imagine what she can do for us as Mayor!
Go Alejandra!!

Alejandra is exactly what this city needs! She is intelligent, experienced, and most importantly she is genuinely committed to public service. I've had the pleasure to work with her in community meetings and I've never met any elected official as honest and dedicated to the interests of the city as Alejandra. I've been a resident of National City for 30 years and I know Alejandra is going to lead us the right way. Re-electing Morrison would be a huge mistake. The man is corrupt and dishonest! He is not interested in the real needs of National City residents. Lets get this scumbag out of office!

Sotel-Solis is wrong for the city. She is immature and inexperienced. She flip flops on issues and has made several promises to various organizations to garner support, promises she can never fulfill.She is mean spirited and out for herself. She does not have NC best intrest at heart. This only a stepping stone to a bigger political office. Luis Natividad has taught her well. Sotelo-Solis has the makings of a corrupt politician! Mayor Morrison has done more for the city than the past 3 mayors combined. Keep up the good work Mayor Morrison! You deserve to be re-elected. Experience counts. Mayor Morrison has the experience to continue to take NC forward. Sotelo-Solis will just take the city backwards with her childish ways.
