Don Wagner, the GOP nominee for the 70th Assembly DistrictÂ seat being vacated by out of touch Chuck DeVore, has failed to file a candidate statement for the ballot pamphlet. While the 70th Assembly District holds a Republican advantage in voter registration, that doesn’t mean he shouldn’t put out the effort to tell the voters a little about himself. Based upon his last campaign finance report, he has $425.00 in his campaign bank account.
You’ve got to wonder, what’s this guy thinking? Does he think he’s got it in the bag? Does he think the voters will just vote for him because ther is an “R” next to his name on the ballot? Wagner may have sprinted like a rabbit ahead of his Republican Primary opponents in June, but that shouldn’t give him cause to believe he can take a nap between now and November. The Democrat Melissa Fox is out walking precincts andÂ talking to voters. She is telling the voters who she is and what she stands for. Don Wagner on the other hand, doesn’t want anyone to know what he stands for, or even who he is.
For those of you who are not in the 70th Assembly District and won’t get her statementÂ in the mail, here’s what she has to say.
Are you tired of sending representatives to Sacramento who just play political games and never fight to bring our tax dollars back to Orange County?
As your representative, I will bring a fresh, independent perspective to the Assembly. I am an Orange County native, a small business attorney, and a mother with a child in public school. For more than 18 years Iâ€™ve been standing up for small businesses. I will bring that fighting spirit to
Sacramento, working for better schools and to create new jobs and economic growth in our community.
My top priorities will be:
Reigniting our local economy by growing businesses and jobs.
Fighting for our schools, colleges and universities so that they are the best in nation.
Fighting for tax fairness and against any tax or fee that unfairly hits our overburdened small businesses and middle-class.
Fighting for seniors, retirees and the vital home health services that allow them to live in dignity in their own homes.
Protecting our ocean and beaches.
Keeping our police and firefighters on the job.
Ending the power of lobbyists and special interests to make backroom deals; restoring accountability and responsibility to Sacramento.
Irvine Mayor Sukhee Kang and Council Member Beth Krom, Laguna Beach Council Members Verna Rollinger, Toni Iseman and Jane Egly; Tustin Council Member Deborah Gavello.
I ask for your vote and pledge to provide the integrity and leadership our community deserves.
We can and will turn our state around.

Keep sleeping Don, Melissa will be there to greet you when you come across the finish line…
IN SECOND PLACE.
