The title of this post really covers most of it.
We all have been getting lots of mailers and fliers in and around town, So I thought I would do my own.
I didn't realize how much people have been wondering about me, so here you go.
My name is Jessica Schaffer (yup, like the street), I have lived in Orange my entire life and I just turned 25 years old (10-23-06) I am also a "grad" of Chapman. I consider myself a Republican and conservative.
So here is "Jessica's Voter Guide" and in this one...there are no paid ad's.
Governor...Arnold Schwarzenegger(not a great choice, he abandoned us, however the others are worse).
Lt. Governor...Tom McClintock (He should be governor).
Secretary of State...Bruce McPherson
State Controller... **Undecided**
State Treasure...Claude Parish
Attorney General...Chuck Poochigian
Insurance Commissioner...Steve Poizner(I met Steve, and he is solid...You Cruz we loss).
Board if Equalization...Michelle Steel
US Senate...Michael S. Metti (Libertarian)
Congress...Philip H. Inman (Libertarian) or Ed Royce(Republican) Not sure yet
State Senate (Dist 34) Nobody (I don't live in that area, but its worth a mention).
Rancho Santiago Community College...(Area 2) NobodyOrange Unified School District
......Trustee Area 1...Alexandra Deligianni
......Trustee Area 4...No Selection
......Trustee Area 5...Kimberlee Nichols
......Trustee Area 7...Rick LedesmaCity of Orange Mayor:
I am completely undecided. I know that I am not happy with Carolyn Cavecche and her actions on the council. When I watch, all she does is try to upstage her counterparts and is more worried about looking good then doing something. Her actions have been very transparent. She has done little to nothing on illegal immigrants loitering on the East Chapman.
But then we have the other choice, Mike Alvarez, who is a total mess. This guy will switch back and forth depending on the direction of the public opinion winds. He lacks leadership abilities and did little nothing as a prior to councilman. Also, the recent discovery of his family owned "Boarding House" has really turned me off towards him.
I hate to say it, but maybe the best choice is 1 of the 2 outsiders. Either Juan Pablo or Andrea Simmons-England.
Orange City Council:
This has been a very nasty and ugly race. The leading candidates have acted with disgrace and it is truly a shame.
However, I am positive that Carol Rudat is not a resident of Orange, and with that know..she is a NO.
So the question, who will I vote as a City Councilmember...
1. Denis Bilodeau
2. Darren Smith
Why not Mark Murphy you may ask, again, the last few years there has been little movement to control illegal immigrants and loitering in the city. This is a huge issue and the incumbents need to be held responsible for the lack of action in the City.
So there you have my choices, like them or not......
