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.
Tim hid Read the rest of this entry »

Reporter Steve Greenhut has once again launched another torpedo into the shameless campaigning for Measure-T by the City of La Habra.

O.K. folks, normally we don’t like to post e-mails that we get from viewers that can comment to a post. However, once in awhile we get a e-mail that just needs posting.
This came in a few days ago.
I find it funny that these 3 candidates Dobkin, Ortega, and Shapiro are against Measure T, But want to spend money for other programs. Not one of these candidates Dobkin, Ortega, and Shapiro have said how the will fund their lofty goals or find the money to do any thing. I also think some of the goals are great redoing downtown is a great idea, but again where are you going to get the money.
We are not aware of any programs that any of these candidates are promoting. Second, redoing downtown has been in the works for 50 years and has been the biggest waste of time, money and energy. Every time the city has gotten involved with “redoing” downtown, it looks worse and it costs the tax payers money – the city was sued by business’ of the last facade improvement that the city spearheaded.

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.

City Council Candidate Larry Dobkin got it right at last weeks council meeting when he accused the city of illegally campaigning for Measure-T and asking them if another mailer was coming out – of which he got no response.
This time, City Manager Hannah has recruited Police Chief Dennis Kies to be a party to this charade as a larger (8.5″x11″), more expensive 4 page color brochure arrived yesterday in the mail (Oct. 30) with Chief Kies giving a full accounting of the dangers if Measure-T does not pass.
He states that “..cuts will have to be implemented that may significantly impact public services.” Since when did the Police Chief decide about what is going to be cut in the P.D budget? At the Candidates Forum, Councilman Beamish and Espinoza both stated that they would not cut the PD’s Read the rest of this entry »

La Habra’s Politicians, those who feed at the trough of the taxpayer and other elitists, have finally come out of the closet and put their names on ballot Measure-T, the 20 year sales tax.
The mailers are replete with chalked out murder scenes with dangling and torn crime scene tape, followed by the fear mongering by line “You Never Want to Get This Call!” Of course, none of this will happen if you pass the 20 year sales tax.
The mailers are big, letter size color flyers that have come via the postman. Two received yesterday were interesting, to say the least. One of the flyers had the names of La Habra’s mostly elite endorsing the tax. And of course there is Lyle Parks , ultra wealthy contractor/developer of the Westridge retail center on Beach and Imperial Hwy., who endorse the sales tax. Along with a bunch of city employees and out of town real estate agents, The Doomis’s and a host of usual suspects that feed at the incestious trough of the city.
Keep watching as we get ready to post the pages of the those donors of the Yes on Measure

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.
