Connor Traut Launches Campaign for Buena Park City Council



Connor Traut

TheLiberalOC received this statement from Centralia School Board Trustee Connor Traut this morning:

Serving as Trustee and President of the Centralia School District in Buena Park has been an honor and a privilege. During my tenure, I have worked to develop summer food service programs, expand early childhood education, approve a balanced budget every year, implement local hire agreements to keep jobs in our community, and author policies that combat sexual harassment. I have been your champion on our school board; I am ready to bring my people-first vision to City Hall.

I am fired-up to announce my candidacy for Buena Park City Council, District 5, and am humbled to be endorsed by many city commissioners, school board members, legislators, and countless residents.

I am running for City Council because I believe that every Buena Park resident should live in a safe neighborhood where streets are smooth, trees are abundant, powerlines are underground, and homes and apartments are affordable. Now is time to protect residents from slumlords, increasing utility rates, and homelessness. As Councilman, I am ready to enhance our business climate, preserve historical homes, partner more with our local schools, and increase youth participation at City Hall.

As a former Orange County Juvenile Justice Commissioner having fought against local gangs, and as a current board member with the Boys and Girls Club, Cops for Kids, and Eli Home Shelters for Abused Children, I have served the most vulnerable in our community. Both my education at Chapman University School of Law, and my rank as an Eagle Scout, have instilled effective public service into my values.

Whether we meet when my fiancée Cheyenne and I are walking our dog in our Buena Park neighborhood – the same neighborhood where my parents were raised, that my grandfather helped build, and in which my great-grandmother taught – or on your front porch when I plan to spend many months knocking on thousands of doors, I am excited to discuss the day-to-day concerns of every unique street and household in our community.

I ask for your support of my campaign to serve as your next City Council Member.

    Looks like he’s about 12 years old. Has this little fella’ ever even had a real job?

      He’s in Law School and has been a competent school board trustee for several years.

        In other words, this little nebbish has never even had a job.

        Any idiot could be a school board trustee. In fact, most of them are.

        Sort of reminds me of Jordan Brandman (R- Anaheim). I wonder what ever happened to him.

          School Board Trustees typically deal with bigger budgets than most city councils have. I have to guess you don’t have a job given how often you post here.

          I think I found the perfect app for you:
          Panion is a mobile app that allows you to run keyword searches to find people with specific interests and to browse your overlapping interests with those nearby. Without the stigma of a dating app, Panion encourages you to meet people of all ages and genders.

          You need to let go of your anger and bitterness. I feel sorry for you that your only joy is commenting anonymously here. Keep doing it if it makes you happy. I don’t care

    I think his youth and inexperience disqualify him. He’s also come out as a progressive which means he’s for big government, public employee unions, and probably anti-growth and development. Planning commissioner Jae Chung is a much better choice.
