Weekend Open Thread: REGISTRATION CLOSES MONDAY & the Anaheim Republican Assembly Candidate Forum Videos




This MONDAY is the deadline to REGISTER TO VOTE so tell EVERYONE YOU KNOW who may not already be registered to FILL OUT THOSE REGISTRATION FORMS which you can helpfully DO ONLINE.  THANK YOU.

I put this post together two months ago tomorrow and it’s only now, in reviewing my unposted drafts while looking for a topic for today’s Weekend Open Thread, that I realized that I had apparently not posted it.  Sorry, it’s been a busy few months!

I regret the (excused) absence of Donna Acevedo-Nelson from these videos of Anaheim City Council candidates, but Vern can post another video of her speaking elsewhere at the end to make up for it.  Everyone else who didn’t come to speak in mid-August at the Anaheim Republican Assembly Forum (which included candidates from both and from neither major party) was either boycotting (if from the SOAR/Disney/Pringle slate) or a non-viable non-entity.

Have fun watching them after you get everyone around you to vote!  In Districts 1, 3, and 4, the candidate you should want is DEFINITELY on these videos! So enjoy viewing them — and GET YOUR PEOPLE REGISTERED BY MONDAY!

About Greg Diamond

Somewhat verbose attorney, semi-retired due to disability, residing in northwest Brea. Occasionally runs for office against bad people who would otherwise go unopposed. Got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012; Josh Newman then won the seat in 2016. In 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002; Todd Spitzer then won that seat in 2018. Every time he's run against some rotten incumbent, the *next* person to challenge them wins! He's OK with that. Corrupt party hacks hate him. He's OK with that too. He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
