Out of Touch Council Majority in Tustin Ignores Residents

With all the news coming out of CUSD, we would be remiss in not addressing what is turning into a major issue in Tustin. Efforts by Lennar to turn unfinished condos into rental properties over the objections of hundreds of residents of Columbus Square. Last week, more than 200 residents packed the city council meeting…

The AD70 GOP Candidates Can Only Say “No”

Particular humorous is Dr. Steven Choi, as thin-skinned a Republican as they come, using a reference we gave him on this blog as “Dr. No” to hype his credentials for an assembly seat. How’s that new apartment in Woodbridge coming Dr. No? Any furniture in there that didn’t come from Costco?

Fundraising Fail: Choi doesn’t capitalize on Pelosi smear

When Rep. Joe Wilson famously shouted “You Lie!” at President Obama’s joint address to Congress on healthcare reform, the South Carolina Republican was able to parlay that classless utterance into hundreds of thousands of dollars for his re-election (his opponent was also able to raise tons of cash).  Last December, Irvine Council member Steven Choi…

Assembly Candidate Jerry Amante Touts an Endorsement from “Open” Mike Duvall

Here’s…

Maybe Jerry (Amante) Can Host a Telethon for Tustin

John Campbell decries government spending when proposed by President Obama but votes for the bailout of banks and the automobile industry when the ideas are proposed by the Bush…

Melissa Fox Gears Up for 2010 Assembly Race

This blog loves Melissa Fox.  She’s smart.  She’s capable.  And she’s one of the best Democratic candidates for the Assembly seat now held by State Rep. Chuck DeVore in years.  Her Republican opponents – Steven Choi, Don Wagner and Jerry Amante – look more and more like theThree Stooges as they try and out-conservative each…

Send Choi a Message by Sending Melissa Fox a Check

With all the press he’s received, AD-70 GOP candidate Steven Choi has likelu zoomed ahead of Jerry Amante and Don Wagner for AD-70 by issuing a very Rep. Joe Wilson-like call for funds from his Pelosi-is-Stalin stunt.  Choi’s whiney Letter to the Editor is in this morning’s OC Register. But tell Choi what you really…
