FPPC Complaint Filed Against Aliso Viejo Mayor
In the most BONEHEAD move of this election cycle, Democrat Phil Tsunoda has been caught using a “city-maintained email list to promote his and another city council member’s re-election campaigns” per the OC Register two days ago. In part,
The list Tsunoda accessed was one compiled by the city from residents who voluntarily offer up their email addresses to receive a periodic “eNews” email detailing what’s going on in Aliso Viejo. “I requested the list and I feel horribly about that and its use,” Tsunoda said in an interview on Monday. In a statement posted Sunday on two of his social media accounts – Facebook and LinkedIn – Tsunoda said the mistake was unintentional and offered an open letter of apology to the community. He said he incorrectly assumed the city’s email list was a public document before being notified of the mistake by the city.
