Has Harry Sidhu become an alchemist?

“Anaheim City Councilman Harry Sidhu is running for county supervisor to replace Chris Norby, who will be termed out. Sidhu, a Republican who often champions his conservative views, voted for a large taxpayer subsidy for hotel developer earlier this week. So did Curt Pringle. Only Democrat Lorri Galloway voted against the subsidy,” according to Steven Greenhut over at the Orange Punch blog.

Greenhut added:

Sidhu said that “They are turning dirt into gold” — all through the wonders of subsidy, I suppose. So much for a belief in free markets. My prediction is this will hurt Sidhu in his run for office given that redevelopment issues loom large in the district.

It looks like Harry is turning his political career into dirt!  There is only one conservative in the race to replace Supervisor Chris Norby – that would be Fullerton Councilman Shawn Nelson, not Mr. Sidhu.
