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

 Powered by Max Banner Ads 

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. 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. Runs for office sometimes, so far to offer a challenge to someone nasty who would otherwise have run unopposed. Someday he might pick a fight intending to win it rather than just to dent someone. You'll know it when you see it. None of his pre-putsch writings ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level. A family member works part-time as a campaign treasurer. He doesn't directly profit from that relatively small compensation and it doesn't affect his coverage. (He does not always favor her clients, though she might hesitate to take one that he hated. He does advise some local campaigns informally and generally without compensation. If that changes, he will declare the interest. He also runs a less frequently published blog called "The Brean," for his chosen hometown, where he is now fighting with its wealthiest and most avaricious citizen-donors. This just seems to be his way.
