A hat tip to Matt Rowe, Fullerton’s independent candidate for city council if the recall election is successful next week. If you read the Friends for Fullerton’s Future posts and comments, a significant narrative is all about how the recall IS NOT PARTISAN. It’s all about Justice for Kelly Thomas and Police Brutality. Except “Justice for Kelly” means no additional aid for the homeless and mentally ill, and NON-PARTISAN really means partisan Republicans who owe allegiance to blogger/developer Tony Bushala.
With an email issued by Fullerton Recall leader Chris Thompson to those who signed the Recall Petitions to vote for partisan candidates, the transparency of the recall has revealed itself.
So the “Turn the Keys to the City Over to Tony Bushala Ticket” is officially Greg Seborn, Barry Levinson, and Travis Kiger. Actually, all Bushala needs is two of the three to win, and for the meager sum of $150,000, Bushala will enjoy the cheapest takeover of a city government ever in Orange County.
Is anyone really surprised? If this election was truly about replacing three inept council members with three new candidates with new ideas, new priorities, or a new vision for Fullerton, and was truly non-partisan, Thompson’s message would have been short and sweet — vote for the recall on Tuesday and Thank You.
I have to wonder if these guys have done some polling and realize their ticket is in trouble. Or if the recall is in doubt somehow. “Two out of three ain’t bad,” or so the Meatloaf song goes.
I’ll give Thompson credit. He says he is for transparency. And with less than a week to go, Thompson reveals the transparency behind this race. Recall these guys and elect these guys instead. Ones that will do the bidding of the blogger/developer in the knit ski cap. What took you so long fellas?
If you’re a Fullerton voter and you’re pro-recall, that’s completly understandable. Ron Thomas supports the recall, but doesn’t believe the recall is being conducted for “Justice for Kelly.” So, recall the bums and vote for candidates other than Seborn, Kiger and Levinson. You then would have rid Fullerton of the “Three Bald Tires” and given Fullerton back to the people instead of one man.
So in Bushala loses in June, there’s always November.
