Hedrick reminds us: Calvert is an offshore-drilling FOOL.

"jes' as long as you let me get a piece o' the action..."

In the wake of the devastation unleashed by offshore BP rigs on the Gulf Coast, congressional candidate Bill Hedrick – who has always opposed offshore drilling – just wants to remind San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano voters that their incumbent Congressman Ken Calvert has always been an enthusiastic Drill-baby-Driller.

In fact Calvert loudly bitched about Obama’s recent offshore-drilling proposals that they did not go far enough, and neglected his South-County beaches.  In a March 31 statement accompanying his own “MORE Act,” which would allow drilling up to the beach, Calvert sputtered:

While (Obama’s) plan opens up areas along the east coast and northern Alaska, it does not call for any exploration off the coast of California where ample oil and natural gas resources exist for development!

Hedrick, in contrast:

Coastal Californians, indeed, I believe all Californians, value our state’s singular natural beauty.  I will fight to preserve our coast and beaches, and I will NEVER support expansion of offshore drilling in California’s waters.

Look out your windows, South County voters, and make a decision!
