On April 10th I sent an email to my representative on the Orange County Board of Supervisors Janet Nguyen regarding her position on the protesters in Little Saigon. I posted my email to her here on the Liberal OC for all of our readers to see and I promised to post her response. So here it is:

Subject: Alleged “anti-communist” protesters
Obviously Janet feels as if there is no need for her, her office, her campaign or one of her assistants to answer the concerns and questions of constituents. I guess Janet only talks to those that shill for her or donate money to her campaign. This is yet another reason why the residents of the First District need to vote for a change.
On June 3rd I encourage all voters to vote for Democrat Hoa Van Tran for the First District seat. Hoa had the courage to make his voice heard on the subject of the Little Saigon protesters. Janet has chosen to try and play both sides of the fence. We need elected officials that are not afraid to take a stand on the tough issues.
Since being narrowly elected to the Board in the special election, Janet has shied away from making the tough decisions, choosing instead to pander for votes by throwing away tax dollars on projects that will benefit her donors or will reward her with votes. Ethically challenged Orange County Treasurer-Tax Collector Chriss Street can thank Janet for him still having his job with all its powers. Janet chose to cower and support him rather than join her fellow Board members in their attempt to strip him of those powers.
We can’t afford to have Janet Nguyen in elected office any more. We deserve better. Orange County deserves better.
