Phone Bank for Ron Shepston This Weekend

FYI, this came in from the Shepston Campaign late last night.

Mission Viejo, CA – Come help Ron Shepston’s campaign GOTV efforts this weekend. Ron’s campaign will be walking precincts in Orange County as well as phone banking. His LA office will be concentrating on phone banking. Bring your laptop and cell phone to participate in the fun.

“We’re expecting an overflow of volunteers this weekend,” said Dot De Leon who manages the Diamond Bar office. She went on to say that Los Angeles electeds have stopped by to help in the past few weeks. It might be a good time to find out what Democrats are doing in Los Angeles.

Ron’s campaign announced today that it has raised $92,353 from about 700 contributors. The campaign has been very successful with their efforts on Act Blue and through their recent fundraisers featuring former ambassador Joe Wilson.  Additionally, they’ve logged 3500 volunteer hours with more than 100 volunteers working over that past few months. Their latest phone banking campaign has already reached more than 17,000 high propensity Democratic voters and you can help reach even more interested voters.   

The offices will be open Saturday & Monday 10 am – 8 pm, and Sunday noon – 8 pm.

For more information, call the Mission Viejo office, 714-709-4413, or their Diamond Bar office at 909-860-6891.

The Rowland Heights office is at 21308 Pathfinder Rd., suite 119 Diamond Bar, CA 91765. If you want to stay closer to home, visit Ron’s campaign at 22151 Los Alisos Blvd. (corner of Los Alisos & Trabuco), Mission Viejo, CA 92691.

    Note to the Shepston’s campaign. If you refer to an office as the “Diamond Bar office,” in one section you shouldn’t refer to it as the “Rowland Heights office” later. Besides, why would you call an office in Diamond Bar the Rowland Heights office?

    LA Office in Diamond Bar not Rowland Heights.

    I can’t believe they let a press release go out that started out mentioning the “Diamond Bar office” and then later called it the “Rowland Heights office.” A little surprising that a mistake like that would happen a few days before the election.

    Who cares?
    Many addresses in unincorporated areas have a postal address in a nearby incorporated community.
    But at least the Shepston folks have the guts to allow publication of their office address(es).
    The other campaign is located SOMEWHERE in Brea as far as I can tell.
    I guess you have to call them in order for them to confirm you’re really a supporter before emailing you the password to give the guy at the corner 7-11 who in turn will give you the address and the secret knock that will open the door.

    That is a funny picture you paint. :) I am always surprised when candidates don’t publish addresses. Chau should. But you should be consistent in a press release. If he is not sure what city his office is in maybe he should refer to it as his Los Angeles County office. Not call it by different names.

    It looks to me as though Chau has two offices: 1211 W. Imperial Hwy., Suite 212 in Brea; and 17360 Colima Rd., Ste. 205 in Rowland Heights.

    I found these two addresses on the campaign web site and didn’t have to provide any secret password to obtain them.

    I do understand the concern of some who don’t like the fact that Chau lives outside the district. But I think complaining that his office addresses are “secret” is pretty silly.

    Neither the Shepston nor the Chau campaigns are multimillion dollar operations, and I think volunteers are probably in charge of the web sites at each campaign. What appears on the web sites is probably what one or two volunteers decided would be there. I can’t believe anything would be left out for nefarious purposes. Truly, it’s a very silly complaint.

    Gila-
    I’m referring to the press release from the Chau campaign reprinted here:
    http://www.theliberaloc.com/2008/04/19/ca-42-new-labor-endorsements-new-campaign-office-for-ed-chau/
    in which they announced the existence of a Brea office without including the address.
    When pressed on the oversight, a representative of the campaign chose not to add the address or office hours in a reply.
    Al least OCWatcher appreciated my feeble attempts at humor.

    Unless the UPS store is letting Ed Chau run his operations out of their store I think that address is only a mailing address.

    What’s funny is Ron did the same thing at first.

    http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/3/31/18275/0717/325/487837

    Someone asked for his Mission Viejo address, he asked that they email him for it.

    I guess both candidates did the “undisclosed location” thing at first.

  10. May 31, 2008 at 3:36 pm

    OC Watcher: the Roland Heights address is a UPS Store, which I think was the original mailing address for the campaign. The Brea location is not a UPS Store.

    I don’t know which part of your remark is supposed to be humor, LC, but again I think you’re being picky. So, the campaign has an inept volunteer or two. So what? If you want to make a list of all enterprises that don’t have an inept staff member somewhere, it’s going to be a pretty short list.

    Sorry, I meant the Rowland Heights address, not the Brea one.

  12. Lets take a hard look at this!

    Both of these guys need work. Miller is going to cream which ever one wins on Tuesday.

    I’ll take responsibility for the error. I sent the incorrect version of the press release. .

    The first time I went to the office, I thought I was in Rowland Heights, a fact which was corrected and saved as a differently named file before it was sent out.

    I’m sure most of you have had an occasion to click on the wrong file and send an earlier version of something. I sent this out late last night before I went to bed and clicked on the wrong file.

    The second office IS in Diamond Bar. Don’t blame the Shepston campaign, blame it on a bleary-eyed supporter who had been out celebrating her birthday, and should have put her glasses on when clicking on the correct file.

    We are too close to ELECTION DAY to be making mistakes like this! I am looking to the three Democrats to step up and make a great run! Still very undecided!

    So, what happened to the story about Chau’s campaign number being his law office. Odd that it was removed! I hope the liberaloc didn’t give in to pressure to remove a story.

  16. June 1, 2008 at 4:06 pm

    No Pressure.

    Dan decided that since the issue was being affirmatively addressed, it did not warrant coverage. The dollar amounts at issue are small and we understand that the campaign was in the process of correcting the error when whe asked them about it.

    What? You see this is what I am talking about. My two main choices are really amateurs. Please tell me why I should vote for one of these two candidates? I have a real problem voting for a carpetbagger and the other guy doesn’t even know the district and he claims to live in the district. He thinks Diamond Bar is Rowland Heights! These guys want to represent me? Very still undecided. Maybe Michael Williamson is the best choice for the 42nd!

    Dear 42nd Undecided,
    If having experience running for office were the most important predictor of quality representatives, we would already have an excellent Congress and everyone elected would be excellent because they, obviously, are the best campaigners. A lot of the Dems who are winning races all over the country now are being elected in part because they are NOT typical politicians. What Ron lacks in campaign experience is made up for ten times over in integrity and intelligence. Any Dem is going to have a tough time against an incumbent Repub in this district, but this year we have a great chance. In November, no matter who the Democratic candidate is, we are going to combine our experience and beat Gary Miller!

    Chris, I disagree. It is illegal for Chau not to list it. If it is not a big issue then write that, but don’t decide what is a story and what is not simply because the Chau campaign claims it is being fixed.

    Let the voters and the readers of this blog decide. Does it being a small amount mean it is any less important. Besides, it is June. One has to wonder how long this has been going on if it is still occuring several days before the election.
