Laguna Niguel Mayor pimping SAPD Chief Paul Walters

Apparently Laguna Niguel Mayor Paul Glaab, who is also an OC GOP consultant, is trying to connive other council members in south Orange County into supporting Santa Ana Police Chief Paul Walters as a replacement for our former Sheriff, Mike Carona. See the email below which Glaab has been sending out to his peers in south Orange County:

Subject: Chief Paul Walters Meet & Greets and Santa Ana Jail Tours

For those of you interested in meeting Chief Paul Walters of Santa Ana and or taking tours of the Jail, we have the following dates and times available.

Meet and Greet is set for both May 20th and May 21st at the Claim Jumper on La Paz each day at 530p.

Santa Ana Jail Tours are set for 1030a the following days with Jail Administrator Russell M. Davis.

May 19th

May 21st

May 22nd

The address is:

62 Civic Center Drive

Santa Ana, California 92702

(714) 245-8120

The jail tour is followed by a lunch with Paul at Marie Calendars, 17th and Grand in Santa Ana for those who can. Key is for you to understand what this is not vs. what it is. This is not to seek your endorsement or support. That is not the process by which the supervisors are following. It is for south county city council members to meet him and ask any questions you may have. South County electeds are primarily contract cities for the SO and therefore have a large stake in the selection process.

Call with any questions. Thanks for taking time from your busy schedules for a tour or meet and greet. If you choose to participate, RSVP directly back to me and will put you on the list for one our times listed above. Best Regards…..pgg

I wonder if these Council Members are going to report their Marie Calendars meals on their campaign finance reports? And is Glaab being paid to pimp Walters? Who is behind this gambit? Why would any south Orange County politicians want to hire a guy (Walters) who cannot stop crime in his own city?
