Scott Baugh for Congress: To Be or Not To Be

imageSo much of the hoopla got many OC politicos speculating via phone calls, texts and social media chatter about Scott Baugh’s political ambitions for a Congressional candidacy which caused many to chew over a Friday night meal.

The speculation swirled over as to whether or not Baugh is planning to run for Congress in Orange County’s 48th Congressional District.

But, the 48th CD is currently held by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach) who has held the seat since 1988.

Why would Baugh wants to challenge Rohrabacher?

No Republican would mount an incumbent challenge dare much like what Assemblyman Don Wagner (R-Tustin) is doing currently with his State Senate candidacy against State Senator John Moorlach (R-Costa Mesa).

Scott Baugh is an attorney who operates his own firm Scott Baugh and Associates based in Newport Beach.  Baugh was an Assemblyman (1995-2000) serving the then-67th Assembly District that stretches mostly northern portion of Orange County coastal communities.  Then, Baugh returned to the political scene by serving as Chairman of the Republican Party of Orange County (2004-2014).

It all started with the FEC (Federal Elections Commission) form that Baugh signed.image

The FEC form that Baugh signed at the bottom says:
“I certify that I have examined this statement and to the best of my knowledge and belief it is true, correct and complete.”

It clearly means he is raising funds for 2016 year.

There should be no transfer to 2018 or any future years, because as a candidate he would be disingenuous by misleading his true and intent of raising said funds for the said office in 2016.

Baugh should come clean with his intentions and not mislead the voters and to scare off other potential candidates by being the “First” out of the gate as a candidate to be the elephant in the room.

In this 2016 election season from an angry electorate, it is not the time for potential candidates like Baugh to be cute and coy with their political ambitions.

So, the question remains for Mr. Baugh:

Will you be or not be a candidate for Congress in 2016?

Folks, stay tuned for an answer to that question……

Microphone Fracas: Assemblyman Shuts Down An Assemblyman

MicrophoneSacramento is a place of high stakes political theater, but today’s fracas between Assemblymen Roger Hernandez (D-West Covina) and Matthew Harper (R-Huntington Beach) before the Assembly Labor and Employment committee is never a dull moment.

Republican Matthew Harper Responds to Unbelievable Behavior by Chair of Labor & Employment Committee During Public Debate

Denounces Bullying Tactics by Democrat Assemblyman Roger Hernández During Committee Hearing

Harper’s statement:

During a routine bill presentation today in front of the Assembly Labor and Employment committee, Chairman Roger Hernández (D-West Covina) used bullying tactics to stop any opposing comment from his Vice-Chairman and colleague, Assemblyman Matthew Harper (R-Huntington Beach).

The erratic behavior began when Hernandez first cut off a witness testifying mid-sentence. Although Hernández had already recognized Harper as the next speaker, instead, Hernández cut Harper off before he was able to say one word.

Hernandez then began frantically calling for a vote to quickly silence Harper. When Harper insisted to be heard, Hernandez physically reached over another person to personally turn off Harper’s microphone. The spastic behavior continued with Hernandez demanding capitol security to remove Assemblyman Harper’s microphone from the dais.

Assemblyman Hernández blocked discussion on a hot topic, SB 3 (Leno), a minimum wage increase bill that would have major implications to businesses and workers throughout the state of California.

From Assemblyman Matthew Harper:

“Blocking discussion in this manner is unfair, undemocratic and soils the decorum of the Assembly. I was sent here to represent the concerns of the voters of my district and chairman Hernández shut down my ability to speak for who I represent.

“Our state’s underemployment rate is overwhelming and the bill being rammed through our committee would make it harder to hire. We are sent here to debate policy that impacts the lives of Californians, not shut down dissenting points of view.

“The chair’s actions were offensive and disrespectful today, not just to me, but to Californians who want jobs and deserve to know the impacts policy will have on their chances of employment. The good people of the San Gabriel Valley deserve better from their representative and Californians as a whole deserve more from those who serve them.”

Is “Hey, Keep My Community Safe” the 2016 Election Lexicon?

2016QEvery election season there is a campaign theme that prompts discussion among the candidates as the voters makes the final decision as to who will be their representative on election day.

In 1992, the country was dragged into a souring economy despite victorious mood within the country in the prior year as American troops pushed Iraqi forces from Kuwait.  President George H.W. Bush was riding high in the polls until reality hit home as challenger then-Governor Bill Clinton of Arkansas campaign strategist James Carville inserted the phrase “It’s the economy stupid” became a lexicon throughout the campaign that delivered a blow to the incumbent President.

In 2003, California got a rude awakening at the beginning of the year when Governor Gray Davis announced that the state budget deficit got so big to the amount of $38 billion which was the largest deficit on record.  Though, the electricity crisis few years prior which set things in motion that became a public relations and political nightmare that caused Governor Davis to become too slow and aloof as to how to handle the matter.  The VLF (vehicle license fee) known as the car tax was tripled that was used to bring down the large deficit caused an uproar throughout the state that prompted California’s first ever successful recall of Governor Gray Davis from office.

What could we expect going into the 2016 election campaign discussions from the general public?

Public Safety!

We must go back few years to see what percolated the issue of public safety that is becoming a concern among California voters.

In 2011, Governor Brown signed AB 109 which was dubbed as Public Safety Realignment as it forced the state to reduce the number of inmates in state prisons to 137% of capacity as a solution under U.S. Supreme Court order.  It also provides for local custody for non-violent, non-serious, non-sex offenders and it make changes to the state parole and add extra burdens to the counties to provide resources to local public safety programs.

In 2014, California voters approved Proposition 47 by a wide margin of 59% to 41% known as “The Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act” initiative, which would modify from felony to misdemeanor for drug possession offenses and crimes involving less than $950 of petty theft, stolen property and forging/writing bad checks.

Sadly, the recent wave of crime incidents has Californians on edge:

Quiet Santa Clarita adjusts to recent jump in violence

After a 12-year decline, crime in L.A. surges in first half of 2015

2 arrests made in robbery, attack of Deaf Man at Coffee Bean

Is San Francisco’s ‘sanctuary city’ policy to blame for a woman’s death?

California voters must ask themselves at what price are they willing to pay whether to reward career politicians for another term or career politicians seeking another elective office to keep their communities safe.

Or are California voters willing to turn the page by sending new leaders at the dais or in the capitol who are willing to answer the call to “keep my community safe”.

We will find out on November 8, 2016!

Assembly GOP Leader Condemns Donald Trump

KristinOlsenAssembly GOP Leader Kristin Olsen (R-Riverbank) denounces GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump remarks towards immigrants.

Trump has recently made inflammatory statements by asking “Who is doing the raping?”

Macy’s, NBC/Universal, Univison, and even the PGA are distancing and/or severing their relationship with the Billionaire businessman.  Today, Assembly GOP Leader Kristin Olsen joins the chorus by condemning Mr. Trump:

SACRAMENTO – Today, Assembly Republican Leader Kristin Olsen, of Modesto, issued the following statement condemning inflammatory language that demeans entire cultures:
 
“As Americans celebrated our nation’s 239th birthday, we were reminded that what makes our country so exceptional are the contributions of people who come from all around the world to live here—from the earliest settlers to the thousands of people who swore an oath of citizenship on Independence Day.
 
“Here in the California Assembly, we are proud to have the most diverse Republican Caucus in history that reflects the distinct cultural makeup of California and the nation. To reaffirm that, we have called on Congress to enact immigration reform, and just last week we proudly celebrated Immigrant Heritage Month.
 
“We call on every person— including politicians and wannabe politicians – to join Californians and embrace and respect immigrants and their contributions to America.”

###
Editor’s note: The California Assembly Republican Caucus is among the first group of elected Republicans in the nation to denounce television personality Donald Trump’s incendiary rhetoric.

Will SB 277 Opponents Take Referendum Route?

vaccineToday, Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 277 authored by Senators Richard Pan (D-Sacramento) and Ben Allen (D-Santa Monica) which removes personal exemptions of vaccination requirements for entrance to a school.

Governor Brown included a message to the California State Senate to explain his reasoning for signing the bill:

SB 277 has occasioned widespread interest and controversy – with both proponents and opponents expressing their positions with eloquence and sincerity.  After carefully reviewing the materials and arguments that has been presented, I have decided to sign this bill.

The science is clear that vaccines dramatically protect children against a number of infectious and dangerous diseases.  While it’s true that no medical intervention is without risk, the evidence shows that immunization powerfully benefits and protects the community.

The Legislature, after considerable debate, specifically amended SB 277, to exempt a child from immunizations whenever the child’s physician concludes that there are “circumstances, including but not limited to, family medical history, for which the physician does not recommend immunization…”

Thus, SB 277, while requiring that school children be vaccinated, explicitly provides an exception when a physician believes that circumstances – in the judgement and sound discretion of the physician – so warrant.

The message from the Governor may not sway the strong vocal opponents of SB 277 who have been waging a public campaign up and down the state to stop the bill through the legislative hurdle.

The question now will the opponents of SB 277 take the referendum route, which is allowed under the California State Constitution Article II, Section 9 that provides electors/voters an option to approve or reject part of law/statute.

If so, it will be no easy task because according to the Secretary of State under the referendum rules:

A proponent has only 90 days from the date of the enactment of a bill (or in the case of a redistricting map, the date a final map is certified to the Secretary of State) to request and receive a circulating title and summary from the Attorney General (Elections Code § 9006(a) allows 10 days for the preparation of the circulating title and summary), print petitions, gather the required number of valid signatures, and file the petitions with the county elections officials.

The petitions must be signed by registered voters in an amount equal to 5% of the votes cast for all candidates for Governor at the gubernatorial election. The total number of signatures required as of November 4, 2014, is 365,880.

Therefore, the clock started the minute Governor Brown signed SB 277 and the deadline for opponents of SB 277 to have the petition signatures filed with county elections officials will be on Monday, September 28, 2015.

If the opponents are successful, then the referendum will appear on the November 2016 General Election ballot.

It must have been a strategy for Governor Brown to sign the bill so quickly, because he could have waited 12 days to sign the bill which would have been on July 12, 2015 and the deadline for the opponents to turn in their signatures would have instead been on Saturday, October 10, 2015.

The most recent contentious bill coming out of the California legislature was in 2013 with the passage of AB 1266 authored by then-Assemblyman Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco) that would allowed transgendered students to use bathrooms and sports teams to match the gender that they identify with.

The opponents of AB 1266 did beat the petition campaign of 614,244 signatures by just 4 days with various county election officials, but they were short of 17,276 signatures and did not meet the threshold requirement for the referendum to be on the general election ballot in 2014.

American Legion California’s Office plans to move from San Francisco to Sanger

CityofSangerAmerican Legion’s California office has been based in San Francisco with a membership of over 80,000 in the Golden State has decided to move their office to Sanger.

Mayor of Sanger Joshua Mitchell expressed his enthusiasm about the American Legion’s California decision move to his town via Facebook:

Sanger had a big win yesterday. A 96 year old Veteran organization who has spent much of that time at their state wide headquarters in San Francisco, CA., has decided effective immediately to move all of their offices to the greatest community around, Sanger CA.
This is one of the greatest events To happen to Sanger in many years. We have been meeting with the American Legion over the course of a couple months on why our schools, our economy, our low crime rate, ourLove of Veterans and our city whose aggressive approach towards moving businesses to our great city is paying off right and left. 

John R. Bart and James Bennett did an amazing job working shoulder to shoulder with us here at the city of Sanger, including David Phillips of the Sanger Chamber and Dan Spears our magician in the economic development dept.

The City of Sanger is 13 miles southeast of Fresno with a population of over 24,000.

The local ABC’s Fresno Station Channel 30 KFSN filed a report: “Valley veterans excited for American Legion California headquarters’ move to Sanger.

For a small California town like Sanger to snatch a longtime service organization headquarters from San Francisco is a big deal.

Closed Captioning of California Legislative Proceedings: Cost Prohibitive

CCCalifornia has a legislative bicameral body known as the Assembly and Senate with capitol in Sacramento.  The legislature’s purpose is to write laws to protect the general welfare of the public and appropriate funds to the executive branch to ensure state government is functioning accordingly.

In the midst of lawmaking, legislators allow the public to view the institution in action through floor debates from the gallery or via online resources like CalChannel.  Unfortunately, for the deaf and hard of hearing constituents closed-captioning resources have not been available as such struggles has been ongoing for almost 15 years.

The Florida Channel that provides coverage of the Florida State Legislature commenced closed captioning in 2005 and extended the closed captioning services online in 2012.

The Indiana legislature provides closed captioning services for the deaf and hard of hearing audience.

In 2001, then-Assemblyman Bob Pacheco (R-Walnut) introduced AB 772 and again in 2005, then-Assemblyman Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) introduced AB 181 to remedy that requires closed-captioning to be provided during Assembly floor sessions for the deaf and hard of hearing audience, but both bills died due to lack of hearing on the proposal.

Recently, Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego) inquired as to why there is a lack of closed captioning services during the Assembly floor sessions and committee hearings.

The Assembly Rules Committee Chief Administrative Officer, Debra Gravert, responded via correspondence to Assemblywoman Gonzalez’s inquiry, “In years past, it has been determined that, as much as we would like to serve the hearing impaired community, hiring a captioning service to “live caption” our televised sessions and committees would be extremely cost prohibitive.”

Gravert further explains that, “It is to my understanding that as a government entity we are exempt from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requirements regarding closed captioning, according to the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations Title 47, Chapter 1, Subchapter C, Part 79.1, section e, paragraph (9).  There are some other exemptions that may apply as well.”

However, Gravert explains that, “Assembly Rules Committee is able to make arrangements for sign language interpreters if a Member is requesting that assistance.”

Assemblywoman Gonzalez’s Legislative and Office Assistant Laurel Brodzinsky says, “We will continue to look into ways in which we can serve our hearing impaired constituents, although this difficult matter make take some time.”
