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.
