While discussing the current state of affairs in Brea’s 2012 election this morning with several senior members of the community, the subject of council member Garcia’s seemingly AWOL status came up.
From his excessively vocal and barely understandable persona when first taking office, Mr. Garcia’s current style of remaining mute while playing Angry Birds on his iPad has been like a breath of fresh air.
Consensus this morning, however, was that in order to shore up the weakened voting block (Schweitzer, Garcia and Murdock), Mr. Garcia is likely quite active behind the scenes.
Tacked onto the Chamber’s Candidate’s Forum, will be a debate between MPT Murdock and Glenn Vodhanel on the two ballot measures, The Brea Accountability Act (T) and The Open Governance Act (U). Since Mr. Murdock first tossed out the challenge to Mr. Vodhanel well over a year ago to debate “anything at any time” the MPT has used every trick in the book to avoid fulfilling his challenge.
Well Mr. Murdock, you can run but you cannot hide. Your day of reckoning is at hand.
Back to the AWOL Mr. Garcia… is it possible that he’s taken the padewan pool boy under his withered wings, instructing him in the ways of the force?
Will we see a Jedi performance out of Mr. Murdock during the debate?
I doubt it, and the smart money will be on Mr. Vodhanel. The passing of Measures T and U is long overdue. All one has to do is observe the old guard at work to know that it’s time to reboot city government.
Don’t be fooled by the Old Guard again.
Two years ago the Old Guard targeted a character assassination plot against Ric Clough which disturbed the force in Brea enough to let the pool boy slip in the back door. Don’t let it happen again.
When the inevitable “hit pieces” show up in your mailbox or email, whether it’s an Old Guard attack against a reputable candidate or their attempt to cloud the credibility of Measures T and U with unfounded, unsupportable claims, do the smart thing.
