West of San Jose?[edit]

The article text differs from what the map shows. Is this leftover cleanup from a redistricting?


The map is correct, and the text mirrors the old district from before 2013. It can be edited by copying the information from: https://www.govtrack.us/congress/members/CA — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:9:4900:1960:9D74:2A83:AD11:AA4D (talk) 05:44, 1 August 2014 (UTC)

Candidates' websites & 2008 campaign[edit]

Markles-

I'm Peter Myers, the Green Party candidate for California's 15th Congressional District. I want to understand better why you have repeatedly cut information out of the entry for California's 15th Congressional District. First you deleted the names of challengers, and although I restored those, you proceeded to exclude most of the external links, including the incumbent and both challengers' websites. Why? My first reaction is to think that you favor the incumbent. What am I not understanding?

Thank you, Peter —Preceding unsigned comment added by Myersforcalifornia (talkcontribs) 01:13, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

  • I had made some wholesale changes to the article to make it conform to the style employed by other pages. In the process, I unintentionally dropped the 2008 election info. I have since restored it in a new place in the article.—Markles 02:36, 16 February 2008 (UTC)


2012 election results[edit]

It is likely that Eric Swalwell will win, as of this hour. but, we have no confirmation of this. i have added hidden text to his redirect, which can be turned into an article as soon as we get a reliable source. if, of course, a wild card is played and Stark remains the congressman, this hidden text can be removed. i wanted to note this so that no one else tries to create an article, only to discover its already created and ready to go.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 06:22, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
