It’s April and there’s no declared Democratic candidate for Mayor in Irvine. So I’m throwing my hat into the ring to run against Council member Steven Choi.
So what if I’m a way to the left liberal that makes Larry Agran look like a conservative? I’ve been in Irvine for 15 years. I’ve coached enough kids here to capture the youth vote and that of their parents.
My management experience includes being a youth soccer and basketball commissioner, a cubmaster for a cub scout pack, a homeowner’s association president for eight years, and I’ve volunteered for a number of community organizations.
Since I have my own firm, I can save the city $1.2 million a year by handling the Great Park PR contract myself. I promise never to bring my Blackberry to the dais. And I will campaign by wearing a Photoshopped sign of Steve Choi’s head over Mao Zedong’s body to see how Choi likes it. I have no bankruptcies, I haven’t carpetbagged anywhere, and I don’t equate gay porn and NAMBLA as parody, and I promise not to use this blog as a camapign tool to libel my opponent.
My campaign slogan is pretty simple: “Take a Left Turn in Irvine and Vote for Dan Chmielewski.”
See you at my victory party in November.
But first, check the date today……
You almost bought it, didn’t you…
