72nd Assembly District Election Update

There has been some speculation regarding the possibility of Fullerton Councilmember Sharon Quirk running for the Assembly seat vacated by Mike “Spanky” Duvall.

I contacted Council Member Quirk and asked her if she would be running. No, she’s not running.

That leaves John MacMurray as the only Democrat currently in the race.

    Not to be a self-promoting charlatan, but I will also be joining the race, and while I will likely run as an independent, I espouse many views shared by the moderate wing of the Democratic Party. If you or anyone is interested, do search for Geoff Openshaw on Facebook and Twitter. Our movement is quite nascent at this time, but we feel the best way to bring about good change in Sacramento is to quit electing people from the same mold and to bring in a fresh face. That face would, of course, be me!

    “Family Values” California state assemblyman representing Orange County, Republican Michael D. Duvall, resigns for apparently not cheating on his wife with a lobbyist or two. Well you have to take his word for it, or maybe believe that hypocrisy has been bred in. In my opinion the Republican Party has been taken over the most extreme religious right (people who love to push their beliefs on others while trying to take away rights of those they just hate) and that’s who they need to extract from their party if they real want to win. Good Luck, because as they said in WACO, “We Ain’t Coming Out”. He is just another name that can be added to the list of “Republican 2009 Summer of Love”: Senator John Ensign (NV), Senator Paul Stanley (TN), Governor Mark Stanford (SC), SC Board of Ed Chair, Kristin Maguire (AKA Bridget Keeney). But let’s get back to the real problem of political corruption, does anyone think this will get investigated and that things he voted on will need to be affirmed by the remaining members or will nothing happen? Do I hear Tammy Wynette, “Stand By Your Man” playing in the background? I remember not so long ago that other Orange County song favorite, “Stand By Your Tan” (for Tan Nguyen). But that’s another Orange County fool.
