When I heard that my old friend Tony Bushala was shutting down his incredible Friends for Fullerton’s Future blog I certainly understood his decision. He never meant to keep fighting forever. He spent a great deal of his own money trying to help the people of Fullerton and while he succeeded in recalling several terrible Fullerton Council Members, and he was able to help his friend and ally Bruce Whitacker to get elected as well, the downside was that his other great ally, Travis Kiger, lost to liberal Jan Flory on Nov. 6.
Kiger’s loss must have been very hard to take. I know that I was disappointed to see such a sharp young man lose. But that’s politics for you. You win some, you lose some. And we also lost Chris Norby’s Assembly seat to Sharon Quirk-Silva, a Democrat whose successful campaign probably helped Flory to win as well.
I looked at the current blogs and media in Fullerton and saw a void in the absence of the FFFF blog. So I decided to start my own blog, which I am calling New Fullerton. It is up and running now. Blogs take time to develop a readership but I figure by the next election it should be a force to be reckoned with.
Like my New Santa Ana blog my New Fullerton blog will offer news, event information, and of course politics. Bushala may be taking a well-deserved break now but the people of Fullerton still need a voice. And now they have one again.,.
