Mark Orozco More Effective On Crime

Mark Orozco works with Riverside County DA and Local Police Chiefs.

Mark Orozco, candidate for the open 42nd Assembly District, has a track record of cooperation with law enforcement. Concerned about the safety of District citizens, Mark has set aside partisan politics and instead focuses on solving the very real problems that face voters.

With this focus on citizenship, Mark Orozco has forged successful connections with leaders from all political persuasions, such as numerous Cheifs of Police and Riverside County DA Paul Zellerbach, allowing Mark to better utilize the the resources available to the district. By bringing more of the tax dollars we already pay, back into our district to work for us, Mark’s approach will allow the us to develop strategies for a safer future without the need for increased revenue.

This approach is made possible by Mark’s ability to reach across the political aisle and work with all our elected leaders. As our next Assemblyman, Mark will take his focus on the issues to the legislative floor in Sacramento where he will be a breath of fresh air in a broken system.

Mark Orozco is running to represent the newly-drawn 42nd Assembly District. The 42nd District includes San Bernardino County; 29 Palms, Morongo Valley, Yucaipa, Yucca Valley, Landers, Joshua Tree, and Pioneertown, as well as Riverside County; Beaumont, Banning, Cherry Valley, Cabazon, Calimesa, San Jacinto, Hemet, White Water, Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, La Quinta, and Rancho Mirage.

Here is another blatant misrepresentation by Mark Orozco. This picture of Orozco with Banning Police Chief Leonard Purvis and Riverside County District Attorney Paul Zellerbach, along with the heading “Mark Orozco More Effective On Crime,” would have the reader believe that Orozco is being supported by law enforcement. The truth is that both Chief Purvis and DA Zellerbach are strong supporters of Orozco’s opponent, Assemblyman Brian Nestande. Perhaps what Orozco meant to say is that he is more effective committing crimes. In the case of his recent nasty attacks on Assemblyman Nestande, the crime of slander. Once again, Mr. Orozco, you need to stick to the truth. The voters of the 42nd Assembly District deserve better than to be mislead and flat out lied to by someone who seeks to represent them.

I've said it before, I'l say it again, the Patch should be for news. This is not a "press release". Every single post here from Orozco and Ruiz is nothing more than bulls__t propoganda. Why does the Patch allow it? BTW, that picture is from the forum that Orozco wrongly used Beaumont District letterhead to publicize. You'd think that he wouldn't want to call attention to that, but once again his true character is thrust into the light. No shame!

Mr. Mann, You are dead wrong! I know both Police Chiefs, neither endorse candidates, however both do support Mark Orozco and the work he has done in the Pass Area. You on the other hand have no merit on accusing Mark Orozco of committing crimes, that is slander itself! You don't even live in the district. Perfect example of outside influences from Brian Nestande's supporters! 90% of his contributions come from outside the state and outside the district. Shame on you of being a false representative of the Inland Empire Taxpayers Association. That organization should strip you from your position! Tristan Johnson, Ret US Marines & Business Owner

Is this the same Chris Mann who lost his race in Westlake Village using slanders attacks against his opponents, not once but twice? Is this the same Chris Mann who is pushing slanders attacks against the City of Beaumont and its officials under the identity of Beaumont Citizens for Responsible Growth with Judy Bingham. I'm sure if we deep hard enough we can connect Mann Communications and slanders attacks on Beaumont City and its officials. I am on the board of the California Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, and I noticed you have created this bogus Political PAC called Inland Empire Taxpayers Association, which has no legitimacy in Inland Empire! Chris Mann from (Mann Communications - http://manncommunications.net) is deceptive. Why should the people of the San Gorgonio Area believe in what you have to say when you have countlessly attacked Beaumont and Banning City?
Chris Mann November 05, 2012 at 10:34 PM
Tristan and James, why all of the hatred? I'll take your comments one at a time: 1) Purvis and Zellerbach are both very supportive of Brian Nestande. Zellerbach has even officially endorsed Brian. 2) I am a resident of Banning, and therefore do live in the district. 3) I did formerly live in Westlake Village and served as Mayor and on the City Council there. 4) I have never attacked the City of Banning. I have, however, represented a client who has serious concerns about the way the City of Beaumont is run. 5) The Inland Empire Taxpayers Association is as legitimate as they come. It has been in existence since 2006, has defeated multiple attempts to pass local bonds and other taxes, and has spent over $1 million in this election cycle alone supporting good fiscally conservative candidates. All of this is public record. I support good public discourse on the issues and candidates. What I won't tolerate is deceit and lies. Let's keep this clean and honest.

Right, Gary, and Ms. Bono-Mack's b.s. that Dr. Ruiz is "anti-Thanksgiving" is the gospel. LMAO.
ATC November 05, 2012 at 10:42 PM
If you won't tolerate deceit & lies, then you're barking up the wrong tree with Tristan & James.

As a public service, here's a video of a recent Inland Empire Taxpayers' Association rally :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTZMTTcvTm8&feature=player_embedded.
Chris Mann November 05, 2012 at 10:49 PM
Steve, I love that video. Thanks for sharing. Naturally, I have a different take on taxpayer protection pledges. Still, very clever ad. :)
ATC November 05, 2012 at 10:56 PM
Steve, I have trouble believing that a liberal such as yourself would ever be a member of the California Howard Jarvis Taxpayer Association, unless it was to try to sabotage the group from the inside. And yes, Steve, any person who advocates the destruction of Plymouth Rock, as Ruiz did, can be considered anti-Thanksgiving and is not someone that should be elected to US public office. But back to Orozco: Everything in this "propaganda" piece from Orozco is nothing but lies. How can he claim that he is "more effective on crime" when his only office to date has been the Beaumont school board (which he mis-used for political purposes)? How can he say that he has the "ability to reach across the political aisle and work with all our elected leaders" when he has never held any other public office? What is his "track record of cooperation with law enforcement"? And his only "focus on citizenship" is to advocate for non-enforcement of Federal Immigration laws. Sorry, everything in this "political ad" is bull.
Steve Mehlman November 05, 2012 at 11:24 PM
Please note Chris's response. Good humored, reasonable and fair. We respectfully agree to disagree. That's the way it ought to be. Compare it to Gary's diatribe and you can get an idea of what's wrong with this country today. Saw a great poster the other day. It said: "What we used to be...before the Tea Party, before the Koch Brothers, before Rush Limbaugh, before the Birthers. Americans! "
ATC November 06, 2012 at 12:03 AM
Yeah, Steve, you just go out of your way to get along with everyone, eh? Kinda like your attack (above) on Chris just a few posts earlier? Careful, Steve, your hypocrisy is showing. My "diatribe" is all facts. But rather than debate those facts, you insult me. At least you're consistent. BTW, respect is earned. Just something to think about the next time you attack someone for their opinions. I'll bow out now, since this conversation will obviously go nowhere positive. See you at the polls!
Orozco for Assembly 2012 November 06, 2012 at 12:11 AM
Thank you for your thoughts and comments. Its great to see community participation in the electoral process. We are all fortunate to live in a Nation that does not criminalize critiques of our former leaders. It is too bad that the political season brings with it so much negative baggage. However, pointing out the failures on an incumbent's record is fair game during a competitive race. The Orozco campaign hopes that each reader will take the time to do their own investigation of the underlying facts. Brian Nestande's voting record: http://votesmart.org/candidate/key-votes/104422/brian-nestande#.UJhPmm_LSac. Brian Nestande's campaign contributions: http://maplight.org/california/legislator/1326-brian-nestande. Anyone who doubts the Orozco campaign's presentations of Nestande's term in the State Assembly should consult the sources above for verification. Mark's own record is equally clear. The campaign would like to thank the Howard Jarvis Taxpayer's association and the Inland Empire Taxpayers' Association for their efforts to protect voters and restore California to a position of economic strength. In fact, the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers' Association endorsed Mark Orozco during his 2008 school-board race because of Mark's active position against local tax initiatives such as Measure Z and the 2010 Measure U; both of which were not right for taxpayers in the San Gorgonio region. Thank you to everyone for working to keep this discussion civil and fact based.

Readers should just compare my initial post--which contained a video that even the person at whom it was aimed found amusing--and Gary's hateful rants, including lies and personal insults about me and others who don't share his extremist views. If Gary has, hopefully, bowed out of this conversation, it will most certainly go in a more positive direction. My final message: YOU CAN DISAGREE WITH SOMEONE WITHOUT HATING HIM OR INSULTING HIM.
ATC November 06, 2012 at 07:51 PM
Your initial post...you mean the one with the 3 paragraphs of personal insults against Mr. Mann, accusing him of slander against Beaumont & Banning among other things? But that's not a hateful rant? No lies? No personal insults? Interesting how you continue to ignore your own hatred, lies, and insults while accusing me of the same. Of course, your idea of "a more positive direction" is for everyone to agree with you. Sorry, Steve, the real world doesn't work that way. Re: your "final message": Perhaps you should practice what you preach for a change. Your very words expose the real you. I think most would agree that the term "extremist" fits you to a "T".

I for one am grateful that Mr. Orozco is no longer a BUSD board member, and won't be a State Assemblyman either. Now he won't represent anyone, especially my kids and I. Or speak for us. Amazing how it wasn't until the last 18 months - maybe if that much - of his BUSD board member 'tenure' that he started questioning how things were actually being done within Beaumont Unified. And to think he actually tried to claim that I see things half full. Nice try, Mr. Orozco. I have been in BUSD since I was 12 years old, and I am in my mid 40's now, my eldest child graduated from BHS in 2007, and my youngest will graduate in 2015. And those events will have absolutely nothing to do with your obvious lack of leadership. It's because they put in the effort, have strong work ethics, strong support system, and me showing them how to get it done. Stick to teaching in Pomona Unified, Mr. Orozco. Please don't run again for BUSD board. You've already done enough damage here by not questioning things in the beginning and going along with Barry Kayrell, Mays Kakish and Wael Elatar. Buh bye.
