MOORLACH UPDATE — Daily Pilot — February 27, 2015
My main opponent and I have had four events in eighteen hours. Two of the venues were opportunities to share our campaign speeches before audiences, one was an individual interview by one of the County’s fine medical associations, and the fourth actually provided some fun debating exchanges. At the three public events, it was very clear that a good number of the guests, if not the majority, were very uncomfortable and disturbed by the hit pieces coming against me. It is becoming very clear that this tactic is backfiring and that his appeal to eligible voters is declining.
In a campaign you need contributors and volunteers. Thank you to our many donors, who have stepped it up in reaction to the negative onslaught. And, as I write, our headquarters is buzzing with volunteers. I am most appreciative. However, the negative hit pieces are also helping my candidacy and somehow I feel as if I should thank the consultants that are running my opponent’s campaign. I only have one small tip to share with my opponent’s advisors to consider. Would you please pick up the phone and call the Orange County Employees Retirement System and confirm my annual retirement benefit? It is nowhere close to $100,000 per year. I know that telling the truth is no fun, but telling a blatant untruth is poor form.

The Daily Pilot has a column by Barbara Venezia on the status of the campaign (Click Here). It is running side-by-side with my editorial submission on the number of whoppers coming from my opponent. Both are below.
