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

Prolix worker's rights and government accountability attorney and General Counsel of CATER. His anti-corruption work in Anaheim infuriated the Building Trades and Teamsters in spring 2014, leading them to work with the Democratic Party of Orange County Chair and other co-conspirators (who had long detested the internal oversight his presence provided) to remove him from the position of DPOC North Vice Chair of in violation of party rules and any semblance of due process. He also runs for office sometimes. Unless otherwise specifically stated, none of his writings prior to that lawless putsch ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level. He tries to either suppress or openly acknowledge his partisan, issue, ideological, and "good government" biases in most of his writing here. If you have a question about any particular writing, just ask him about it and (unless you are an pseudonymous troll) he will probably answer you at painful length. He lives in Beautiful Bountiful Brea, but while he may brag about it he generally doesn't blog about it. A family member works as a campaign treasurer for candidates including Wendy Gabriella in AD-73; he doesn't directly profit from that relatively small compensation and it doesn't affect his coverage. He does advise some campaigns informally and (except where noted) without compensation.
