By: 69th Assembly District candidate Jose “Joe “ Moreno
My name Is Jose “Joe “ Moreno and I am still a candidate on the ballot for the 69th Assembly district.
A campaign mailer sent out yesterday on behalf of Tom Daly is a lie!
This particular mailer titled “Attention Republicans” was mailed to registered Republicans and also distributed by canvassers who called themselves Republicans.
My expanded freedoms, limited government, and absolutely “no new taxes” campaign brought relevancy to many of the 69th Assembly district voters but now Daly is so desperate, polling a distant 3rd place, that he is willing to mislead and lie to steal your vote.
Don’t believe Tom.
Please consider Daly’s responses submitted to the OC Register’s election guide and research the true facts on your own.
Orange County Register Question: How would you solve the state’s chronic budget problems?
“The Legislature must stop opening new tax loopholes. In the last 20 years, those loopholes have caused a permanent loss of $112 billion.”
Tom isn’t saying he will fight to close current tax loopholes or even that he will not vote or support new tax loopholes, just that the Legislature must “stop” it. It sounds ridiculous but this is vintage Tom Daly politics.
When Daly was campaigning as a candidate for Anaheim Mayor he was in strong opposition of the city’s controversial 1991 utility tax but surprisingly once elected Mayor, Tom Daly didn’t bring up a vote to repeal the utility tax.The truth is here, http://articles.latimes.com/1992-12-24/local/me-3502_1_utility-tax
A former Anaheim Mayor, then council member Fred Hunter, continually asked Tom Daly to bring up a motion to repeal the controversial utility tax but Tom Daly’s lame response was, “I’ve said I oppose the tax, and that is all I have said,”(LA Times)
In December 1992 a Times writer wrote, “Many interpreted Daly’s campaign opposition to the tax as meaning that he would seek its repeal before its scheduled expiration.”
Tom just allowed the controversial utility tax to expire on September 30th, 1993 but continually lies to voters to this day on his campaign website, mailers and neighborhood walk campaigns about the truth.
Candidate Tom Daly strongly opposed the utility tax to get elected.
Mayor Daly does absolutely nothing to repeal the controversial utility tax
Daly takes credit for the budget surplus from the controversial utility tax.
“Second, after the latest court system computer fiasco, where a $300 million project ballooned to a $3 billion mess, the state must reconsider its own competence to do this work.”
The California court system computer fiasco was allowed to suck more money out of taxpayers when Administrative Office of Courts’(AOC) staffers lobbied the state legislature to not request audits, as detailed here: http://aocwatcher.wordpress.com/2010/02/12/aoc-admits-to-lobbying-against-ccms-audit/
As Tom Daly campaign press release stated he has already enlisted Sacramento consultant/lobbyist Richie Ross of Ross communications, who was Willie Brown’s former Chief of Staff, so who would ever believe that these type of financial messes will stop when Tom is playing ball with the same players. There are a lot of news stories on Ritchie Ross, here’s a good one: http://www.newsreview.com/sacramento/cruz-controlled/content?oid=16033
The AOC was a bloated state agency, that was corrupted by the never ending taxpaying money it received from the state for the county case management system(CCMS) It hired hundreds of new employees, gave out generous raises, gave out free IPADS, hired temporary workers making over 100,0000 a year and doesn’t this agency sound similar to the County of Orange’s,Clerk-recorders office. Read here for the story:
While I won’t detail here the many “fiasco” or in”competence” issues concerning Tom Daly as an elected official because most of them have been detailed at the Friends for Fullerton’s Future news cite here, http://www.fullertonsfuture.org/tag/tom-daly/
Lastly, there is another billion dollar financial mess that is projected to be over 100 billion and while Daly is getting financial support from political action committees, groups, business and individuals who will financially benefit from California High Speed Rail, he not telling anybody publicity that he will support this project. Here is what one of the companies that has employees that have given campaign contributions to Tom Daly says on their website, “High-Speed Rail Generates Train of Legal Work 12/08/2011 Daily Journal Nossaman Infrastructure Partner Nancy Smith is quoted in the Daily Journal article “High-speed rail hit with early lawsuits,” about the potential for legal work stemming out of the California’s proposed high-speed rail network.The article notes that Nossaman was hired by the rail authority to assist in the process of selecting a qualified firm to design and build the system, among other things. “We’re at the beginning of the design-build procurement process,” said Ms. Smith.
California High speed Rail is riddled with the same problems as the court system computer fiasco Tom aforementioned as problems that the state must stop but are those campaign contributions silencing Tom. Columnists Dan Walters wrote about the California High speed rail here: http://www.modbee.com/2012/04/09/2149763/dan-walters-california-high-speed.html
Daly’s response: “California has spent more money on what doesn’t work than the combined start-up costs of Google, Apple and eBay.”
Seriously! This statement may sound inspiring but the truth is that the start-up cost for those cited companies were minimal.
Google started in the basement at Stanford University, Apple started in a garage, and Ebay start up cost was considered ”modest, evan comical” Read here, http://ebay.about.com/od/ebaylifestyle/a/el_history.htm
What is your stance on Gov. Jerry Brown’s plan to raise taxes?
Tom Daly’s response: ”I will be voting “No”. I cannot support higher taxes as long as I see money being wasted.”
This is so simple. Tom will be voting “yes” as long as he doesn’t see money being wasted. I don’t think he literally mean he has to “see” it but one never knows with Tom.
Tom’s “no” on taxes response will soften considerably after June’s election, depending on the top two candidates, just to get elected.
Daly’s response: “I cannot justify raising the sales tax on life’s necessities, while millions of persons are either out of work or working part-time. It isn’t fair, and ultimately won’t solve anything.”
There a lot of things that are unfair in life but being a hypocrite by talking about the people that are either out of work or part-time, while hiring campaign contributors or political friends‘ sons and daughters who either loss their own jobs or came from agencies that had to lay off them is despicable.(See story above from Friends for Fullerton’s Future)
Besides the state budget, what is the single most pressing issue facing the state of California today?
The state is forcing students out of what was once California’s greatest asset, our community colleges and state universities. We must move aggressively to lower the cost of college textbooks – many now cost more than the fees to take a class – and we can do it by bringing textbooks into the digital era where they are nearly free. I will pursue initiatives like this, and restore the promise that once was the great California Promise.
Tom expects people to believe he is now committed to students when he used the Anaheim Union High School appointment as a means to gain a higher elected office. He lies and says that he was “elected” to the AUHSD board for three years but with his August 7th 1986 “appointment” to November 1987 ending term, that 15 months.
Daly has trouble with telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Don’t believe him!
My name is Jose “Joe” Moreno and I am on the ballot as a candidate for the 69th Assembly district.
