Tim Shaw Gets On Council, Daren Nigsarian Gets Bupkis

November 5, 2008

You have heard us talk about ‘trading integrity for political expediency’ before on this site, some of this year’s politicos were a perfect example of this.

Tim Shaw and Daren Nigsarian went for political expediency.  Unfortunately, the voters did not get any mailers or newspaper ads alerting them to these two.

Nigsarian Not Truthful About His Credentials

November 1, 2008

Nigsarian has, on numerous occasions, either stretched the truth, contradicted himself or lied about never wanting to tax water.  Well, he is stretching the truth about his 24 years as a LA County Sheriff Deputy.

In 1986 Nigsarian, according to his own web site, his friend states he graduated from Rio Hondo Police Academy in 1985 and has been a Sheriff’s Deputy for 24 years.

Our research shows that Nigsarian was a Marshal that worked at the Norwalk Superior Court, California.  We have not been able to find Read the rest of this entry »


Daren Nigsarian Lies to The Public About Taxing Water

October 31, 2008

O.K., we know that we reported on this a few weeks ago and we also posted video of Nigsarian from the City Council interviews where he states his desire to tax the citizens of La Habra.  However, now we have video of Nigsarian’s response to Candidate Shapiro accusing him of wanting to tax water in the Video Link Below.

It is amazing to see Nigsarain lie with such ease when only a few months prior to the League of Women Voters forum he was giving careful, detailed explanations of why we need more taxes and how he would personally guarantee getting a hotel tax passed. AND WANTING TO TAX WATER AS A WAY TO GENERATE REVENUE!

Watch this video and immediately e-mail your friends cause this guy is lying before he even gets into office.


Yes On Measure-T Web Site, No Endorsements

October 28, 2008

Another amazing item that we found, the Yes On Measure-T website (welovelh.com) has nobody endorsing the sales tax measure.

If you go to the site and try to click on the “Endorsements” link you will find it is not active.  Why? Because none of the incumbents up for re-election, Rose Espinoza(D), Tom Beamish(R), and candidates Darren Nigsarian(D), Tim Shaw(R),  will risk running on the tax for fear of losing.

While they all support the Sales Tax increase, they refuse to put their verbal commitments into print or on their individual web sites.

Come on you guys’ and gal.  Be proud of your stance on raising taxes on your constituents during this country’s biggest economic crisis since the great depression.  All of you are brilliantly articulate about why we need the tax when you speak to your supporters but you become very different when speaking to the public.

You can see Tim Shaw & Darren Nigsarian discussing why they are for the tax by clicking on the “Video” link in the Categories Box to the right side of this page.

These folks are covertly running on the tax while at the same time they are running away from it when it comes to their campaign material or speaking to the public.

Again, their actions speak volumes.


In 2005 Nigsarian Caught Stealing “No on G” Signs

October 25, 2008

After lengthy discussions with the witness, we found that council candidate Darren Nigsarian was caught stealing “No On G” signs” back during the 2005 special election.

The witness stated that he personally saw Nigsarian taking the signs from Arby’s on Whittier Blvd, just West of Harbor Blvd.  The witness stated that Nigsarian had the “wet paint”, candidate Dobkin alluded to in the debate, “on his hands.”  The witness called the police and an officer found Nigsarian.  Confidential sources stated that the president of the No on G committee was contacted and that Nigsarian was found with the signs in the trunk of his car.

From discussions back in October, 2005 we established that a woman was given a summons to appear by LH PD for stealing signs and that she too was caught with no on G signs in the trunk of her car.  However, unlike Nigsarian she was given a summons to appear.

Now the questions begin.  Why was Darren not given a summons to appear?  The explination we got back in 2005 was that Nigsarian claimed he had taken the signs because he was helping to clean up the area.

The witness declined to sign a complaint as they were elderly and felt “intimidated” which we took as possibly uncomfortable with the situation, that Nigsarian would then know who they were.

With the goods in his vehicle, white paint on his hands, trunk and his admission that he took the signs, why would a officer need a witness at that point?

We shall see, as this does not seem to be the end of this.


What is in Question? A Political Sign Stealer is What

October 22, 2008

After reviewing notes from other sources at the candidates forum, we found that one question stood out, yet at the same time only one answer from a candidate was telling, almost cryptic.

Larry Dobkin’s response to the question “what should be done to those who steal or deface political signs?” set our minds racing as nothing in this town is what it appears to be.

So, which candidate was pulling out “No On G” signs in 2005?

Not Shaw.  As tax happy as he is, Shaw knows better.  Even as the Treasurer of the Yes On G Utility Tax Committee, Shaw isn’t that stupid.  Beamish; that would be a stretch even at best.  Ortega, highly unlikely a guy who is against the sales tax would go pinch the signs and the same goes for Shapiro.

That leaves Espinoza, which gives us headaches trying to envision her stealing signs.  That has Nigsarian who co-chaired the Yes On G Committee without a chair to sit in when the music stops.

By eliminating who wouldn’t steal a sign, we are left with Darren Nigsarian.

And what we found out is very interesting.  See our next post for more.


Shapiro Calls out Nigsarian for Wanting to Tax Water

October 18, 2008

What a interesting politcalpalooza it was on Thursday at the city council chambers.  After candidate Larry Dobkin unrolled the mega list of taxes to emphasize how much we already pay to the government, things got boring.

Not until the halfway mark did it begin to sound like a debate.

The big item was when candidate Mike Shapiro accused fellow candidate, Daren Nigsarian, of wanting to bring back the Utility Tax, Hotel Tax, have a sales tax, and TAX WATER!

Nigsarian denied ever saying he wanted to tax water and laughed it off as a joke.

Shaprio looked shocked, as we were, and Shaprio then said “Yes, you did.  I saw the video of you during the interview and I posted it on my web site.”

This isn’t the first time Nigsarian has conviently forgotten his past words or deeds.

If you’ve been reading and watching the videos on this site, then you know Nigsarian DOES WANT TO TAX WATER.  You heard him in his own words and raising of his eyebrows as if it was a great new revenue idea that he just thought of.

Taxing Tim Shaw, like Tom Beamish, couldn’t answer the question of supporting the sales tax, Measure-T.  Both prefaced their statements with “I’m a republican and I’m against taxes…But.”  What a shame that two well known republicans can’t stand up for fiscal responsibility.  Especially when it comes to Shaw.  Working for such an anti-tax elected official as Bob Huff, our 60th state assembly representative, for Shaw to embrace a tax is puzzling, to say the least.
