Come Hear Many Different Tunes at Vern’s Concern Today at 4:00 in HB!

Vern’s Memorial Day Concert is this afternoon at 4, at the Huntington Beach Central Library!  As you can see below, musically it will bring together disparate artists operating in wonderful synchrony.  Politically, for a brief break, it will bring together political candidates operating in something less than synchrony: me, Helen Hayden, and Orly Taitz.  (I’m trying to get Assessor Candidate Jorge Lopez to come along as well, but I think that the idea may have occurred to me too late for it to happen.)

Vern’s concerts are always great — as are my speeches.  Plus, I’m sick right now (some sort of allergy thing settling into my chest), so if he needs a basso profundo to chime in at some point, I’m ready!

Vern concertin' with Greg background mural

Vern and two of his special guest musicians for today’s 4:00 Memorial Day concert at the HB Library pose in front of one of the many murals that have been painted in various parts of the city, ones where Tony Rackauckas and his supporters never go, to support my candidacy for District Attorney. (Come on — I DARE you Racky guys to go find it!)

Guest musicians:
The ALLOY wind duo (James Barrera on saxophones, Janelle Barrera on flute.)
Loghman Adhami on violin.
Vocalists and percussionists to be announced.
Compositions by Beethoven, Debussy, Bartok… Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Queen … and everyone in between.


About Greg Diamond

Somewhat verbose worker's rights and government accountability attorney, residing in northwest Brea. General Counsel of CATER, the Coalition of Anaheim Taxpayers for Economic Responsibility, a non-partisan group of people sick of local corruption. Deposed as Northern Vice Chair of DPOC in April 2014 when his anti-corruption and pro-consumer work in Anaheim infuriated the Building Trades and Teamsters in spring 2014, who then worked with the lawless and power-mad DPOC Chair to eliminate his internal oversight. Occasionally runs for office to challenge some nasty incumbent who would otherwise run unopposed. (Someday he might pick a fight with the intent to win rather than just dent someone. You'll know it when you see it.) He got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012 and in 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002. None of his pre-putsch writings ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level, nor do they now. A family member co-owns a business offering campaign treasurer services to Democratic candidates and the odd independent. He is very proud of her. He doesn't directly profit from her work and it doesn't affect his coverage. (He does not always favor her clients, though she might hesitate to take one that he truly hated.) He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
