Controller Chiang Endorses Orozco for Assembly

State Controller endorses challenger for newly drawn 42nd State Assembly seat.

State Assembly candidate Mark Orozco’s  (D-Beaumont) campaign today announced the endorsement of State Controller John Chiang. After an intense exchange of ideas with Orozco on fiscal issues affecting the State, Chiang decided to endorse Orozco.

Explaining his decision Chiang said: “In my exchange with Mark I noticed his passion, and knowledge on fiscal policies. In our discussion, we concurred on the need to do away with bills, and initiatives, that are designed to be self-defeating, either because they are fundamentally unconstitutional, or extremely diluted on their intent, making them ineffective. This window dressing behavior shown by some legislators, it is what I think is wrong in Sacramento, and by endorsing Mark, I am voting for an alternative leadership based on commitment and honesty.”

“It is an honor to have John Chiang’s support and full confidence,” said Mark Orozco in a press release. “As State Controller, he has been a champion for ethics in government and a watchdog of tax payer dollars. As the next assemblyman I am looking forward in working with our Controller on fiscal transparency and the efficiency in the use of public funds.”

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

Full disclosure I am a registered Indepedent who voted for CA State Assemblyman Brian Nestande in the last Election. He wiil not get my vote in November. This man @ a cost of aproximately 1.5 Milliion Tax Dollars per budget (with committee budgets addeed as well) has sat in CA State Assembly for 4 years and has not had one of his Bills signed into Law. This brings me to CA State Assembly Candidate Mark Orozco. Democrat. Over my 40 years of voting I have voted both sides of the isle so to speak. I would Vote for Mr. Orozco if he didn't march to Democratic Part Lines. Higher Taxes, No School Vouchers, No Right to Work for the State etc. Mr. Orozco will lose in November. We will be saddled once again with an Assemblymen in our District who one way or another has made his living off of Polotics. Get with it Dems. If you ever wish to put a competitive Candidate in this District you need a Conservitive Candidate. They exist. I know they do. Ron Moon
