Doug Chaffee Throws His Hat in the Ring for Fullerton City Council

The announcement came in this morning; Doug Chaffee, a longtime Fullerton resident and Planning Commissioner, will run for one of two open seats on the Fullerton City Council.

Doug Chaffee will file papers with the Fullerton City Clerk indicating that he will seek a seat on the city council. The general election is scheduled for November 2, 2010. In announcing his candidacy, Chaffee said that he is extremely concerned about the city’s financial situation, which has resulted in diminished city services.

            “My campaign will emphasize sustainable financing for the city and restoring a sense of inclusiveness, openness and civility among the people who work, live, and serve our city. There are many challenges facing Fullerton. I want to hear from the community – residents, homeowners and businesses. I’m a good listener and welcome everyone’s ideas. Working together, we can create common sense solutions to the economic and social challenges that face Fullerton.”

            A business attorney who has practiced law in downtown Fullerton for more than 40 years, Chaffee is a graduate of Fullerton Union High School, University of Redlands (BA Economics), and Northwestern University School of Law. He lives in Fullerton with his wife, Paulette, and sons Marshall and Adam.

            Chaffee is vice chair of the Fullerton Planning Commission and past president of Fullerton United Way and Sunrise Rotary Club. He serves on the board of directors, North Orange County YMCA and the Advisory Board of Fullerton Interfaith Emergency Service. He is a member of Friends of Jazz and the Sierra Club.  Email him at

    Prepare for Tony Bushala to start the sh_t talking from the safety of his computer monitor. Will he ever bring his concerns to Doug’s face, of course not. And if anyone confronts Tony, he will simply have his body guard Chris “I Don’t Know Karate But I know Crazy” Thompson get in their face and threaten to fight.

    Now that Pam Keller is leaving, she should use the remainder of her campaign cash to hire a PI and get the real dirt on Tony Bushala. We know its out there, it seems the OJ/FFFF bloggers only accept people who live in glass houses.
