Everyone needs an editor. The OC blogsphere is loaded with posts about typographical errors on fundraising invites or fundraising addresses pointed at City Hall in Anaheim. This afternoon, Mayor Choi’s December newsletter came in and I’ve noted two things quickly — the Mayor isn’t sending Christmas card to anyone this year.
From the letter:
“I have pared down some of my holiday routine. For example, I used to send Christmas cards, but I have given up that tradition. I do receive a large number of Christmas cards, and I do read them and appreciate the senders’ efforts and good wishes. It feels rather contradictory to be a receiver and yet not a sender.
You get the point. No one should feel they should send me a Christmas card, especially since I am unlikely to return the favor. Nevertheless, please understand that I do wish you a very Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and a year that I hope will be filled with many blessings from our Lord.”
Don’t worry Mayor Choi; we’re not sending you a card this year and you get coal for not being honest about a newspaper reprint you used from the OC Register without the paper’s permission in the last election — Santa’s watching!
While thumping his chest over the FivePoint giveaway, Choi talks about a personal meeting with Broadcom “CEO” Henry Samueli over the company’s plan to build new headquarters at the new Great Park. Choi writes:
“One added benefit concerns Broadcom, one of Irvine’s major employers. With approximately 4,000 employees and looking forward to doubling that in the near future, Broadcom has been looking for a large piece of land upon which to build their new headquarters. I really want those high-paying jobs to stay in Irvine. I met with Henry Samueli, Broadcom’s CEO, to tell him that.”
One problem. Henry Samueli is not the CEO. He’s the chairman, a co-founder, and CTO of the company. The CEO is Scott McGregor. But you’d think our mayor would take a little more … care in getting the title right. Oops.
