OCDA TO CELEBRATE THE “YEAR OF THE DRAGON” AT THE 31ST ANNUAL TET FESTIVAL
SANTA ANA – The Orange County District Attorney’s Office (OCDA) is proud to participate in the 31 st annual Tet Festival this weekend, Saturday, Jan. 28, 2012. The 2012 Tet Festival is a celebration of the Vietnamese New Year, “Year of the Dragon,” and will feature entertainment, games and prizes, food, art and culture vendors, and exhibitors from local business, government, and law enforcement agencies.
They say that personalities win in today’s political environment and if that is true then Todd Spitzer probably has a leg up on the competition, in his race for Orange County’s 3rd Supervisorial District, which is currently represented by squishy Bill Campbell. But I hope that the voters will take the time to really look at what the candidates stand for. In the case of Spitzer, the news is not good for those of us who value freedom and fiscal conservatism.
Cal WatchDog Columnist Steven Greenhut nailed Spitzer, when Chuck DeVore suddenly announced he was dropping out of the race for the 3rd District, to move to Texas. Here are a few choice excerpts from Greenhut’s post: Continue reading

Recruitment Begins for County Auditor-Controller
(Santa Ana, CA) — The Orange County Board of Supervisors has initiated the recruitment process to select the County’s next Auditor-Controller.
The Board is seeking candidates to replace David Sundstrom, who is resigning January 31 to become Auditor, Controller, Treasurer and Tax Collector in Sonoma County. Specific educational and professional qualifications for Auditor-Controller candidates are detailed in California Government Code section 26945. Since Auditor-Controller is an elected office, the individual appointed must also be a registered voter within the County of Orange and be qualified to vote for that office at the time of appointment.

Moderation isn’t working anymore for Orange County’s labor leaders, according to the Voice of OC. When has this far-left bunch ever been moderate? It is true however that this year they have seemingly lost their minds – lining up behind union consultant Julio Perez for the 69th Assembly District, behind the crazed rantings of labor boss Teferi Gebre, who describes his political views, on Facebook, as “very liberal.” LOL! Gebre lives in Carlsbad – a city with an $85K median income. How 1% of him!
Backing Perez is such a bad idea that both Assemblyman Jose Solorio and State Senator Lou Correa, as well as DPOC Chairman Frank Barbaro, have had to remind local Democrats that the 69th is a moderate district. Of course when the Democrats hold their meetings at a union hall, you can’t expect much in the way of moderation. And so Perez is now bragging that he won a strong majority of support from Democratic Party Delegates during a Pre-Primary Endorsement Conference held this weekend. Of course he did! Would you expect much else from these liberal nuts?
We broke the news on our New Santa Blog last November that Supervisor Bill Campbell, who thankfully is terming out after this year, has hired a new Chief of Staff – Laura Cunningham. But did you know she is still listed as a Principal at a lobbying firm she co-owns with her husband, Matt Cunningham?
That’s right. They own Pacific Strategies, a public relations and public affairs company that, supposedly taps “years of government and political experience to assist you in building support for initiatives and projects, creating positive awareness of your organization or project and guiding clients through the governmental process. We’re experienced with effective strategies for favorably influencing elected leaders, government officials, and community and opinion leaders—building coalitions and mobilizing opinion in support of your goals, and neutralizing critics. Our clients are the beneficiaries of relationships we’ve nurtured during the course of nearly two decades.” Yep, lobbyists! Continue reading
