Bogue announces candidacy for supervisor

DIXON — Dixon City Councilman Thom Bogue has made it official – he’s in the race for the Board of Supervisors seat for the 4th District.

Bogue will run against incumbent Supervisor John Vasquez in the June 3 election. Vasquez has said he will seek a fourth term.

Bogue took out  papers for signatures in lieu of filing fees from the county Registrar of Voters in late December 2013, but didn’t announce his candidacy at the time.

“I have lived, worked and owned a business in this district a major portion of my life and have seen it go through many changes,” Bogue said in a statement he released late last week. “Some of those changes have been good and many have not. I believe in my heart, and with your help, we can do better.”

Bogue, when contacted by phone on Monday, was going door-to-door for his campaign.

A major issue remains the county budget, he said. He described himself as a fiscal conservative who wants to see an end to tax-and-spend approaches.

For example, he disagreed with the county’s recent decision to increase recording fees for real estate documents to raise money for the real estate fraud unit. The county doesn’t have a money problem, it has a money management problem, he said.

Bogue talked about maintaining the county’s agricultural areas. But he criticized the approach to growth taken by the regional Plan Bay Area, saying there are better ways to accomplish this goal without having such a big impact on people.

Bogue has an auto repair shop in Dixon. He was elected to the Dixon City Council in 2010.

He posted his autobiography at his http://votebogue.com campaign website. The account mentions such things as being a survivor of Jonestown, Guyana as a teen in the late 1970s and going to the local Claybank Jail in the early 1990s for drug charges, before concluding drugs are the road to destruction. He writes of turning his life around and raising his family in Dixon.

“My life is an open book,” Bogue said, adding he doesn’t believe a candidate should hide anything from the public.

    At a bare minimum, Bogue has this going for him... he's anybody else but Vasquez.

    How does he feel about us being included in that mess with the East Bay Area, being bullied by the Air Resources Board??? Would he do anything to get us out of that????? Some of us probably would like to know.

    People check out this candidate and if you decide he deserves your support, it is very important to do something....Contact his campaign and volunteer to help knock on doors, do phone calls, contribute at least enough to buy a yard sign....very important to be procative in helping worthy candidates to win...Some of the worthiest candidates do not have the campaign war chests supplied by special interests and need "boots on the ground" to make the difference to win election...Thank You

    I knew this guy waaaay back in the early 80's. I'm glad he's turned his life around.

    Thanks Lil, One thing I learned; it is not so much your experiences which matter so much, as what you do with them and to help others.

    ''Bogey's'' got a point about the real estate fraud situation----we already have enforcement mechanisms in place. The DA's office is looking through a rear view mirror----real estate sales are not exactly what they were in 1999 at the peak of activity. Any single competent investigator can quickly check transactions, brokers and funding now. It doesn't require a huge empire building bureaucracy as the DA proposes. The Supes know that too, but will do anything to get money to feed obese giant all consuming State and Local Government.
