Ruh roh! It looks like Lucy Dunn, the President of the Orange County Business Council (OCBC), really blew it when she sent out an email promoting her pal Kris Murray, who is running for re-election to the Anaheim City Council. You see the OCBC accepts taxpayer money and as such they are not allowed to endorse candidates. They have a Political Action Committee that is supposed to do that. But look at what Dunn had to say in her email blast:
From the Desk of Lucy Dunn…
Folks–You know all the good work Kris Murray accomplished when she was OCBC’s Vice President of Government Affairs. She has taken that experience, and so much more, for a remarkable term with remarkable accomplishments as Anaheim City Councilmember. It is now time for Kris Murray’s re-election and I urge you to show your support for her with a maximum political contribution to her campaign.
She is committed to her community, smart and courageous. She understands both the importance of Anaheim, but also the region and state, and leads with a knowledge that is beyond her years, always aware of the importance of business success in a fragile economic recovery.
She is the type of leader we have longed for, the leader we need now, the leader who deserves our full support in reward for her clear track record of success.
Join me on June 25 at The Diamond Club at Angel Stadium of Anaheim, 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. Bring a corporate check or a personal check or BOTH. The event details are HERE and below. RSVP to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be sure you are on the guest list.
See you there!
President and CEO
No bueno Lucy! You blew it.
And why would anyone in their right minds endorse Murray? She has voted to give millions of dollars of hotel tax money to a hotel developer who has no business building hotels if he cannot pony up the cash himself. This is welfare for fat cats! And Murray also supports wasting millions of dollars on an Anaheim Street Car that will only benefit Disneyland. What Anaheim really needs is bike lanes!
Murray is also opposed to ward specific elections which will bring real diversity to the Anaheim City Council. And she has been a thorn in the side to Anaheim’s awesome Mayor, Tom Tait. Murray is there for one reason, to carry water for the despicable Curt Pringle!
I can but hope that someone has already ratted Dunn out to the FPPC.
