Former United States Treasurer Rosario Marin Endorses Emanuel Patrascu for State Assembly
Rosario Marin served as the 41st Treasurer of the United States, under President George W. Bush. She was the highest ranking Latina to serve in the Bush Administration and was also a designee to the President’s Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans. Previously,Marin held prominent positions in the administrations of Governors Wilson and Schwarzenegger.
“Emanuel Patrascu is a small business owner whose financial experience is sorely needed in Sacramento. It is about time that we elect someone who knows what it is to write his own paycheck and knows what it takes to create jobs,” said Marin.
“I am honored to have received the support of Rosario Marin. Her record of service at the local, state and federal levels has made a real difference in making our community better,” commented Emanuel Patrascu.
Emanuel Patrascu came to the United States, along with his family, as a political refugee fleeing an oppressive government regime. He has worked as a campaign and political professional, and is currently serving as District Director to Assemblyman Travis Allen. Additionally, Emanuel is also a small business owner in Orange County. Emanuel lives in Laguna Beach along with his wife and young son.
Financial advisers, even the bad ones, will warn investors that “past performance is no guarantee of future results” — that might apply to stocks, but it always works in partisan politics.
In 2011, one of the most entertaining races in Orange County was the 72nd Assembly District which saw Los Alamitos Councilman and recently failed Clerk-Recorder candidate Troy Edgar running against Travis Allen, an underfunded but charismatic political newcomer. Allen had never run for office (he owned a small wealth management firm), but he had two big advantages over Edgar — he wasn’t a lying hypocrite and he didn’t have a parasite for a campaign manager. Allen ended up winning in an 11-point landslide, costing Edgar about one-half million dollars in his failed effort. Numerous posts here exposed Edgar for his phoniness in raising taxes in his own city and canoodling with its trash hauler while he portrayed himself as a “tax fighter” — in fact, the OC GOP even awarded him for being a schnook.
