D.I.Y. Doesn’t Mean I Don’t Want Support

The hardest part of running a D.I.Y. campaign is getting people to want to support you if they don’t see enough other, often moneyed, support already in place. I’ve heard too many times to count that I’d be great for council it’s just too bad I don’t have the funding to win a seat. It’s […]

18 Oct 2016 City Council Meeting

The council chambers were packed by the time I got to city hall from work last night and I didn’t plan on talking so I had the joy of sitting outside and hearing nothing for quite a bit of it because my phone signal wasn’t strong enough to view the live-stream. It shows you the […]

An Open Letter to Joe Imbriano

Dear Mr. Imbriano, As a fellow candidate for Fullerton City Council here in 2016 and an outside the establishment one to boot, I find it odd that you keep attacking those who could be potential allies with you in this election cycle. You with some regularity like to act as if all of the council […]

About that Ballot Statement

When I pulled papers to run I didn’t have the funds for a ballot statement and thus didn’t pay for one. People keep telling me I need one to win so here’s my unofficial ballot statement with the requisite word salad as appears to be the norm for these items. I’m running for city council […]

Chief Dan Hughes’ Retirement & The Future of the F.P.D.

Word has just gone out that Fullerton Chief of Police Dan Hughes has submitted his two-week notice for his retirement from the Fullerton Police Department. This makes our Council Vote that much more critical as the new Council will vote on who will replace Hughes as our Chief of Police. If you believe in progress […]

Why You Mr. Ferguson?

I’m going to explain a little about myself to help answer the “Why You Mr. Ferguson?” question. First let’s talk about that “My Family Gets a Puppy” post that I boosted on Facebook and several people have complained about, shall we? It’s relevant I promise. Let us not dwell on the negative responses as I […]

Make Photography Grain Again

This Sunday, 16 October 2016 @ 0800 I’m going to be heading down to the train station and then walking around Downtown Fullerton to take some boilerplate photos (that don’t require trespassing) while answering any questions you may have about my campaign or the direction of our fair city.  We’re going to be shooting film […]

Trading Our City for Trader Joe’s

The City is going to lie to you in order to get what it wants and what it wants is high-density multi-story “mixed-use” properties all over town. It wants these for the developer fees and the property taxes. To hear Ma’Ayn Johnson of the planning commission speak you’d believe that we just need the “right demographics” […]

Driven Crazy by Fullerton’s Roads

You know you are in Fullerton because the road tells your car the minute you arrive. That’s a joke that I’ve heard around town and the City’s own internal average score of 61 (out of 100) confirms that our roads are in poor shape. To hear the city tell it we’re doing a bang-up job […]

If I Win My Family Gets a Puppy

My wife and kids have conspired against me and made me agree to get them a puppy if I win a seat on the Fullerton City Council. I was able to negotiate it down from “if people vote for me” because then 1 vote = puppy.  It’s not that I’m anti-dog it’s just that they […]

Event – LGBT OC Center Meet & Greet

Last night after work, and before the Fullerton Art Walk, my wife and I attended a Meet & Greet at the LGBT OC Center in Santa Ana, California. I should start out and say that this event was supposed to be a way for candidates to learn about the wants/needs of a constituency that feels […]

04 Oct 2016 City Council Meeting

I’m going to make this brief (not true) because the council meeting last night was short and mostly uneventful as is usually the case when people aren’t particularly outraged by what council is doing on a given night. We all have lives and being outraged at everything they do gets exhausting even if it feels […]
