[Stanford University, in the heart of Silicon Valley, is supposed to be a
hot bed of new-economy libertarianism, but when it came time to endorse a
candidate, the spokesman for the right wing outfit didn't even get a
Governor: Peter Miguel Camejo, Green
The governor is the chief executive officer of California and oversees most
state departments and agencies, appoints judges, approves or rejects new
state laws, presents an annual state budget to the State Legislature and
manages state resources during emergencies.
In evaluating the two major party candidates, Democrat Gray Davis and
Republican Bill Simon, we question the integrity of both candidates and
would not feel comfortable asking either of them to lead California during
the next four years. Camejo, on the other hand, wants to work hard to fight
corruption in California and has a sound platform, which includes a greater
use of renewable energy sources, a fair living wage law and ending racial
profiling by police and the criminal justice system. Camejo was also the
only gubernatorial candidate who took time out of his campaign schedule to
come speak at Stanford.
