With voters in NY23 rejecting a hard right wing idealogue, perhaps voters in AD-70 can do the same next year and cast a ballot for Melissa Fox against two hard core right wingers who desire to out-conservative each other.
A Right-Wing Extremist or Melissa Fox?
In November of 2008, voters in our district chose Obama, and it wasnâ€™t close.Â Less than one year from today, the voters will choose a new representative in Sacramento. Â Here’s the text of an email we got from the Fox campaign a short time ago:
Will it be one of two extreme far right-wing ideologues or will it be progressive candidate Melissa Fox?
The choice, in a very real sense, depends on what you do right now.
Far right-wing extremist Number 1 is Jerry Amante â€“ known as â€œToll Road Jerryâ€ because of his relentless attempts to foist expensive toll roads on the public in boondoggle schemes that even the Bush administration opposed — who has mismanaged Tustin’s water supply and repeatedly shown his contempt for the environment and our ocean, waves and beaches.
Far right-wing extremist Number 2 is Don Wagner â€“ known as â€œBook Burner Donâ€ because of his vitriolic attacks on the non-partisan American Library Association — who has called for the infliction of corporal punishment on our kids in elementary school.
Neither Amante nor Wagner offers anything that would bring jobs, economic development and prosperity to our district.
Neither Amante nor Wagner offers anything that would improve our schools.
Neither Amante nor Wagner offers anything that would protect seniors.
Neither Amante nor Wagner offers anything that would improve UC Irvine or our community colleges or prevent them from becoming beyond the reach of the middle class.
In contrast, Melissa Fox is a passionate advocate for families, the middle class, small business, schools, jobs and economic growth. Â
Alone among the candidates, Melissa is committed to fighting for our kids and to make sure that California’s schools are again the best in the nation.
Alone among the candidates, Melissa is committed to helping homeowners, supporting small businesses, bringing jobs and economic development to our community.
Alone among the candidates, Melissa will fight to ensure that seniors obtain the health care they need, are free from abuse and exploitation, strongly opposes cuts to home health care, and will fight to ensure that our seniors are not forced from their homes.
Alone among the candidates, Melissa is committed to fighting for the students and faculty at UC Irvine and for protecting and improving our community colleges
Neither Toll Road Jerry Amante nor Book Burner Don Wagner represents the values of our community.
But one of them will represent us in Sacramento unless you take action to support Melissa Fox now.
There Has Never Been More at Stake
There has never been a time when we needed real representation more than we do now.
Please make a contribution to Melissa now to help ensure that someone who shares our valuesÂ â€“ and not a far right-wing ideologue with an extremist agenda â€“ represents us in Sacramento.
