Jordan Brandman Tries to Be All Things to All People
Posted by Lassie on November 2, 2012
A Republican friend in Anaheim and a Democrat friend in Anaheim gave me the mailers they received backing Jordan Brandman for Anaheim City Council.
One says, “Republicans Endorse Anaheim Union High School District Trustee Jordan Brandman for Anaheim City Council” on it. The other says, “The Only Democrat Endorsed by the Democratic Party of Orange County” on it.
The Democrat mailer brags about endorsements from the Democratic Party of Orange County, the Anaheim Firefighters Association, the Democratic Foundation of Orange County, the Orange County Labor Federation and the Anaheim Police Officers Association.
The Republican mailer brags about endorsements from the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce PAC, Anaheim Neighborhood Association, the Orange County Business Council, the Orange County Taxpayers Association PAC and Support Our Anaheim Resort PAC.
The Republican mailer has a big quote from Brandman saying, “I am a fiscal conservative who has fought for the taxpayers and job creation.” The Democrat mailer calls Brandman, “The Choice of Democrats and Labor…” Yet the Orange County Employees Association and the Republican Party of Orange County have both funded hit pieces attacking Brandman.
Jordan Brandman tries to be all things too all people, but there’s one thing we know for sure: he supports the $158,000,000 giveaway of taxpayer dollars to a big corporation, something that both labor unions and Republicans oppose.
Here’s a video of Brandman giving effusive praise to the $158,000,000 GardenWalk scheme at an Anaheim City Council meeting (video courtesy of the Save Anaheim blog):
Both friends said they received their mailers on Monday, October 22. I should visit my Anaheim friends more often to get their mail in a more timely fashion.
