Devin Nunes returns to Fresno as the keynote speaker for the Fresno GOP’s Lincoln Reagan Dinner on Wednesday, April 17.

Nunes represented the Fresno and Visalia areas in Congress from 20o3 until he quit in early 2022 to work for Trump Media & Technology Group. He is the group’s CEO.

During his time in office, Nunes was a close ally of former President Donald Trump, TMTG’s chairman and director.

Trump Media went public on the stock market on Monday. Nunes was named to the parent company’s board and owns company stock.

SEC documents show Nunes earns a $750,000 salary, with a raise to $1 million this year. TMTG board members could receive retention bonuses of $1.8 million.

Jimmy Walker, famed for his role as “JJ” on the 1970s sitcom “Good Times,” will also attend. Others slated to appear are well-known political critics Victor Davis Hanson, and Steve Hilton.

The event takes place at Pardini’s, 2257 W. Shaw Avenue in Fresno. Individual tickets start at $275.

Kirkland Endorses Boudreaux

Tulare County Sheriff Mike Boudreaux picked up an endorsement from another Republican who ran for Congressional District 20.

Kyle Kirkland, R-Fresno and owner of Club One Casino, endorsed Boudreaux, R-Springville.

“There is one choice that clearly reflects our community’s values and will fight for us in Washington: Sheriff Mike Boudreaux. He has demonstrated a deep commitment to listening to our concerns, finding common ground, and being an advocate for us all. He also is the only candidate with a long track record of fighting for and delivering a safer Valley,” Kirkland said in a news release.

Boudreaux faces Assemblymember Vince Fong, R-Bakersfield, in both the May 21 runoff for the vacant seat to serve immediately and the Nov. 5 general election for the term starting Jan. 3, 2025.

Orange Cove Measure Two Votes Short

Every vote counts, and it appears a public safety tax measure in Orange Cove will fail by a matter of two votes.

Measure O needed two-thirds to pass on the March 5 ballot. As of Monday, it stands at 66.28%, 346 of 522 votes. If two votes flipped, it would receive the 66.67% needed to pass.

The measure would levy $95 per parcel, raising about $263,000 a year.

The Fresno County elections office says there are 50 ballots to count countywide, plus 2,300 signature cure letters. That means there is an issue with the signature on the ballot, but it can still be fixed by Wednesday. Fresno County Elections Clerk James Kus says eight of those ballots are from Orange Cove.

Measure O would need at least six more “yes” votes, without a “no” vote, to pass.

The county has until April 4 to certify the election, but Kus says he plans to certify by Friday.

Reedley Mayor Could Lose Out on Travel Reimbursement

Mary Fast

Elected leaders need to know about deadlines. The city of Reedley requires reimbursement requests to be filed within 30 days.

Mayor Mary Fast is requesting $278 for mileage reimbursement for travel around the Central Valley for various meetings. However, $193 falls beyond the 30-day requirement.

The city council will vote on the reimbursement as part of its regular business at its Tuesday council meeting.
