Vicky Cayetano is by far the best competitive candidate going into the 2022 election.She comes from a successful business, is smart, is NOT a Me, My, Mine person. This is about time in this decade to return a bright woman in the Governor's office.She has no baggage. I know Vicky is a very independent person and always share concerns as former first lady.The Health industry is very short of physicians and Dr. Green does best as a doctor. Not fit for titular head of the party.Lets have someone who knows business and is best to get our economy moving forward in years to come. Go Vicky, Go get 'um.

There is an underlying double standard between a male and female candidate. The public is better served if critics and political gurus stop imposing their biased opinions on any candidate. Let the public hear from all candidates and decide on their own. Just because Vicky's husband has been an office-holder does not mean that she is an automatic clone of her husband. Let's allow her wide space and the freedom to be herself.In terms of leadership and professional experience, owning a small-business requires lots of spunk, smarts, and hard work. She has been very successful. Give her credit for her management ability and  business acumen. These traits are important in a political leader.Her life experiences - Born in Manila, from a big family,  relocating to SF for a better future, majoring in economics, starting her own travel business agency and so on provided life insights and lessons that cannot be bought or taught from books.I'm very interested in this gubernatorial candidate and want to hear her ideas and platforms.
