Bracco is a convicted meth dealer & he never would have been elected in the first place if he'd been truthful & forthcoming with Gilroy voters who despise such low life trash !!!

This article helped clarify the candidates' positions a lot. How can I get a list of debates and council meetings, etc, so I can find out more about what's happening and the candidates?
