O.C. Clerk-Recorder Tom Daly finally launched a website touting his campaign for the heavily Latino 69th Assembly District.
As I have come to expect from Orange County Democrats, his website has no mention of the issues. But it does include one of the most hilarious pictures I have ever seen in Orange County politics – Daly, standing on a bridge by the MainPlace Mall, surrounded by children of color. Yep, Daly is the white knight come to save us from ourselves!
I wonder if these kids know about Daly’s past attacks on the poor, including his efforts to drive poor famlies out of Anaheim motels? Or his attempt to keep the Gigante Supermarket out of Anaheim? What a joke.
Daly did address the issues in the O.C. Register’s Voter Guide. When asked what is the most pressing issue in our state besides the budget, he said it was the cost of books at community colleges. He made no mention of the public employees pension crisis at all.
It is not a surprise that Daly is not acknoweldging the public pension crisis. In a press release his campaign issued today he touted that “he has been endorsed by the Anaheim Police Officers Political Action Committee, the Orange County Coalition of Police & Sheriffs (O.C. Cops), and the Orange County Chapter of the Peace Officers Research Association of California (OC/PORAC).” Of course they endorsed them – he is going to make sure they get their six figure public employee pensions!
