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.

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.


Former Council Member Who Voted to Pass Illegal Utility Tax in 1992 Endorses Tim Shaw

October 26, 2008

If you thought this couldn’t get any crazier, La Habra’s past good old boy on the council, John Holmberg, has endorsed Tim Shaw.

Back in 1992 then councilman Holmberg voted to pass the illegal Utility Tax in La Habra and set the stage for the liberation of millions of dollars from the public’s purse. Read the rest of this entry »


Taxing Tim is Misleading the Public…..

October 26, 2008

And he isn’t even in office yet!

In Tim’s most recent mailer, 8″x10″ with LA County Firemen on the back, it says: Tim Shaw – Keeping Republican Values Strong.  We assume he knows what he is doing as he sent it to Republican house holds.

This guy really has no shame Read the rest of this entry »


Taxing Tim Exercises in Anticipation of Fighting For Taxes?

October 19, 2008

 This photo ended up in our in-box and we really went over it to make sure its real. Our photoshop gurus poured over it and they think its absolutley phony…..

Tim could never lift that much weight.  It appears to be a cross between Jane Fonda workout meets flash dance.


OC Republican Party Votes NO on Tim Shaw

September 16, 2008

Last night at the Orange County Republican Party Central Committee meeting, members voted nearly unanimous NOT to ENDORSE Tim Shaw.

Tim supported or endorsed the following taxes in La Habra:

  1. Utility Tax, with no sunset clause. Voted down by the Public
  2. Hotel Tax,  with no sunset clause. Voted down by the Public
  3. Sales Tax,  with no sunset clause, Pending election

This is a historical moment for the the city as the Republican party appears to be finally taking notice of La Habra’s RINO’s (Republican in name only) and dealing with them quickly.

In 2006, the Endorsement Committee caught La Habra’s most influential RINO, Steve Simonian, lying about his involvement in endorsing Measure G, the utility tax.  Simonian told the committee that he had not endorsed or supported the Utility Tax.  However, FPPC documents from the Yes On G Committee showed a $500 donation and his actions and statements supporting the tax in La Habra are without question.

He was denied endorsement.

Tim should have taken a lesson from his party (He was present during the 2006 endorsement committee meeting) and not followed in Simonian’s taxing footsteps.

September 13, 2008

On July 21, 2008 La Habra Republican candidate for city council, Tim Shaw, takes the podium to speak in favor of the council putting the Sales Tax Initiative on the Ballot.

What is the world coming to when Republicans start endorsing more taxes, Democrats advocating banning abortion?
