A new election cycle is upon us.

By end of the day tomorrow all those truly intending to run for office will have filed their papers with the City Clerk, paid whatever fees and deposits are required and the race is off and running.

Soon, as well, the Registrar of Voters will give some permanent designation to the initiatives on the ballot – currently known as : The Brea Open Governance Act and The Brea Accountability Act.

If 2010 was any example of the “rough and tumble politics” we can expect this year, it’s going to get heated and probably pretty ugly. A number of special interests, i.e. little Brea cliques with selfish personal agendas and an unquenchable need to be a big fish in a small pond, are bound to wade in to support their candidate or issue du jour.

Everyone is tall enough for this ride.

I’m going to do my best to dig into the issues, fact check the claims and allegations, ferret out who’s really behind what and why.

Basically, I’m going to give you the other side of every story. It’s up to you to take from it what you wish and to cast a ballot in support of what you believe to be the truth and the best option for a Brea that fits your vision, that meets your expectations.

You are registered to vote, aren’t you?
