Is Harry Sidhu a threat to Tom Daly’s supervisorial campaign?

[poll id=”163″]

Why is Red Klownty’s Matt “Jerbal” Cunningham trying to discourage Anaheim City Councilman Harry Sidhu from running for Orange County’s 4th Supervisorial District?

Jerbal had this to say about Sidhu’s campaign in a recent post:

From what I’ve been able to gather from nosing around, the reaction to this fundraiser, and to Harry’s supervisor candidacy in general, has been underwhelming. For oe thing, there’s the carpet bagging issue. Harry lives in the 3rd Supervisor District and has no plans to sell his Anaheim Hills home and move into the 4th District. So he’ll buy or rent a condo there to use as a voter registration address — which is no different from what Tom Umberg did when running for the 1st Supervisor District in 2006-2007.

Could it be that Jerbal and his buddy John Lewis are afraid that Sidhu will take votes in Anaheim away from their pet Democrat, Tom Daly, who is also running for the 4th District?

That would only help the REAL conservative in this race – Fullerton Councilman Shawn Nelson, who announced in an email today that he is indeed running to replace termed out Supervisor Chris Norby.

Here’s Nelson’s campaign announcement:

Dear Friends,

As you may know, Supervisor Chris Norby cannot run for reelection due to term limits. His district (the 4th) includes part of Anaheim, Buena Park, Fullerton, La Habra and Placentia. Fullerton and Anaheim are the biggest blocks of voters.

After a great deal of thought and planning, I have decided to run for Supervisor.

With my experience as a business owner and as a City Councilman I know I will be able to work toward continuing the goals we all share for Orange County:

* Improving the local economy and job outlook through business-friendly policies.
* Protecting the interests of taxpayers by rooting waste out of the county budget and demanding accountability for every county expenditure.
* Keeping our neighborhoods safe and driving crime and gangs out of our county.
* Opening up county government to greater public scrutiny and input.

As a conservative who was raised in the Fourth District, and the top vote-getter among Republicans in last November’s Fullerton City Council election, I start our campaign with many advantages. I have the love and support of my wonderful wife, Sharon and my entire family. I have been encouraged to run by some of Orange County’s leading public servants. But the most important advantage will be the support from taxpayers like you who care about the future of our county and the quality of life in our communities.

I invite you to visit my website, www.NelsonforSupervisor.com for information about our campaign and how you can help. We are putting together our list of supporters and I would be honored to include your name on that list. Just click on this link to let me know I have your support.

Thank you for your support.

Shawn Nelson
