Jan Flory is a local attorney who has served on Fullerton City Council in the past. She seems very "establishment."
Brian Bartholomew is a local business owner and (I think) a newcomer to politics. On his web site he calls himself "The Conservative Choice for Fullerton."
Vivian "Kitty" Jaramillo is a retired "Preservation Inspector" (city employee). I know Kitty has been active in various community groups like the Homeless Task Force and Meals on Wheels. I think I will probably vote for her.
Don Bankhead has been recalled twice and is running again. Baffling.
Travis Kiger is a blogger for the muckraking Friends for Fullerton's Future blog. He is endorsed by Ed Royce, the Republican Party of Orange County, and even the (gulp) Lincoln Club. I will not be voting for Travis Kiger.
|Jane Rands is legit.|
Roberta Reid is simply listed as "retired" on her ballot statement. I could not find much info on her. She coughed a lot and was sometimes incoherent at the forum.
Barry Levinson is an accountant who goes to almost every fucking city council meeting. He is a big advocate of "reform." I think he writes for the Friends for Fullerton's Future blog too.
Jennifer Fitzgerald is, according to her web site, "The founder and CEO of CL7 Communications, Inc., a strategic communications firm, which specializes in political fundraising. Her clients have included Mitt Romney for President, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Meg Whitman for Governor." Yikes.
Bruce Whitaker is a current councilman who has worked for State Assemblyman Chris Norby. Bruce seems like a competent guy.
Rick Alvarez wins the award for the weirdest photoshop image on a candidate's web site.
|Congratulations, Rick Alvarez.|
