Posts Tagged ‘36th Senate District’

It’s a time-honored New Year’s tradition to review all the new laws taking effect starting on January 1. So I thought I’d get a look at new laws affected Rostrafarians in California. I nearly choked on my breakfast when I looked at the number. There are 837 new laws taking effect as of today. Seriously? Our state was so far askew we needed over 800 pieces of legislation passed to patch us up? Holy moly.

Tuesday night the Valley News in Riverside erroneously reported that County Supervisor Jeff Stone defeated Assemblyman Joel Anderson for the 36th Senate District seat, apparently because the reporter was only looking at the Riverside portion of the results.

A new story has since been posted, without a trace of the incorrect report or a correction.

Here is the first part of the story that was…and wasn’t…and now never existed:

Stone-Defeats-Anderson_paper_V1Supervisor Stone declared winner in 36th Senate race

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010
Issue 23, Volume 14

Early this week a mailer from the Joel Anderson for State Senate campaign came out and used a public quote from an on air interview in which radio talk show host Roger Hedgecock said of Anderson “Joel Anderson is the greatest freshman Republican from San Diego, ever”.

Anderson never claimed an endorsement, most politicos know that Hedgecock rarely endorses, but the Stone campaign today decided to try to create something out of nothing and succeeded in informing everyone that Joel Anderson is the greatest freshman Republican from San Diego, ever. Good job.

The following commentary by Jon Fleischman is up on the FlashReport today.

For many of the same reasons so eloquently noted by Jon, I support Joel Anderson for State Senate.  That should come as no surprise to anyone.  Joel and I have been friends for many years.

Yet, I have many friends in politics that I would not necessarily endorse for office.  It takes more than a warm body that happens to vote “correctly” to earn my support, especially at the state legislative level. It takes a fighter who understands just what this state is facing and how to turn it around, as well as someone who has the personal skills and tenacity to try to get it accomplished, instead of just being a “no” vote.  That also means having such a philosophy all of the time, not just when it fits the polling or the climate.

Jeff Stone Ignores Race for Humanity Issues

Thursday, June 3, 2010
posted by Steve Gramm

As a follow-up to Marion Ashley’s guest commentary, I am happy that the Riverside chairman of the Board of Supervisors is so passionate about helping organizations in the community.  I hope he will become a better advocate of taxpayer funds and ask his colleague Jeff Stone some tough questions.

What Supervisor Ashley does not seem to understand is that this is not a knock against the goal of raising funds for the worthwhile organizations that Race for Humanity (RFH) has supported, it is about the obvious conflict of interest, ethical issues and the fact that without all the taxpayer funds from the county, the RFH would be a complete failure.

Stone’s Pattern of Abuse Should Disqualify Him in Minds of Voters

It should come as no surprise to the readers of this website that occasionally in politics, a politician will say one thing and do another.

But never in my career have I seen such a blatant display of hypocrisy than I have after observing Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Stone’s campaign for the 36th State Senate District over the last week.

After spending weeks attacking his opponent, Assemblyman Joel Anderson, for a “pattern of ethical abuse” Stone himself has engaged in a series of ethical violations. He seems to think that the rules do not apply to him, just everyone else.

Clearing the air about the Race for Humanity

Chairman, Riverside County Board of Supervisors

A great deal of misinformation has been passed around on this website regarding Riverside County’s “Race for Humanity” program. On behalf of the members of the Board of Supervisors I want to set the record straight.

To start I must point out that the Race for Humanity receives full approval from our Board annually. As a matter of policy, all community improvement fund allocations must receive a vote of approval from 4 out of 5 County Supervisors. We are scrupulously careful with the taxpayers’ money.

Yes, we already knew that.

But, here is the story from Capitol Weekly.

Most importantly, here are the pertinent sections related to the San Diego area contests…

AD 77 – This seat came open two years early when Assemblyman Joel Anderson, R-La Mesa, decided to mount a bid for state Senate. Another three–way race, this one includes El Cajon City Councilman Bill Wells; Brian Jones, a Santee City Councilman; and Christine Rubin, a former staffer for Senator Mark Wyland, R-Escondido. Wells appears to have the most endorsements, including the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, though Rubin is well-connected and boasts the support of several sitting GOP legislators. Jones has some local support, but may have made some enemies in 2008 when he attempted to take on local Rep. Duncan Hunter in his own primary; he lost by 56 points.

Jeff Stone’s Race for Humanity – Part Two

Tuesday, May 11, 2010
posted by Steve Gramm

Following up on my last post, it looks like there may be much more to the whole “Third District Supervisor Jeff Stone’s Race for Humanity” story than meets the eye.

The organization was launched in 2006 as a non-profit corporation according to their filings with the Secretary of State.  It appears that the organization received over $100,000 in taxpayer funds from Supervisor Jeff Stone’s slush fund in 2006 that may not have been reported to the IRS.  A review of the Race for Humanity 990s reveals that the apparent first tax return was filed for FY 2007 which covered the time period of 07/01/07 thru 06/30/08.  This would mean that over $100,000 of taxpayer funds and whatever private donations were received prior to July 1, 2007 may be unaccounted for and not properly reported to the IRS.

Jeff Stone takes “Slush Funding” to a New Level

Friday, May 7, 2010
posted by Steve Gramm

Just when we thought the San Diego County Board of Supervisors was as blatant as it could get in spreading their “discretionary” taxpayer monies (slush funds, to be exact) around the community as a way to promote their names and curry favor, then we take a look next door.

Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Stone has taken the use of taxpayer slush funds to benefit his name to a new level.  San Diego County Supervisors can’t even begin to hold a candle to him.

Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association Endorses Anderson for Senate
Leading taxpayer advocate gave Anderson a perfect rating in 2009 due to his vote against Proposition 1A.

SACRAMENTO – California ‘s leading taxpayer advocate, The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association (HJTA), has endorsed Assemblyman Joel Anderson in his bid to become the next State Senator from the 36th Senate District. Anderson’s service in the state legislature is what earned him the HJTA endorsement, which is considered the endorsement gold-standard in California Republican primaries. “Joel’s steadfast opposition to higher taxes earned him our highest rating,” said HJTA President Jon Coupal.

SAN DIEGO – Adding to Assemblyman Joel Anderson’s surge in momentum since declaring his candidacy for the seat currently held by Senator Dennis Hollingsworth, San Diego Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher (R-San Diego) announced he was endorsing Anderson for State Senate.

“I support Joel Anderson for State Senate because he’s a rock-solid conservative that gets things done in Sacramento,” Fletcher said. “Additionally, as a veteran, I support Joel because he has been a fierce advocate for California’s military heroes.  He led the charge to exempt California Veterans from state income taxes and to recognize their sacrifice by giving them free access to our state parks.”

TEMECULA – Just two days after Assemblyman Joel Anderson officially announced his candidacy, the California Republican Assembly – California’s oldest and largest grassroots conservative organization – quickly threw its endorsement behind Anderson’s bid for State Senate.

It didn’t take long for the CRA to determine who the real conservative was in the race to replace Senator Dennis Hollingsworth in the San Diego-based 36th State Senate District. Each candidate’s conservative credentials were highly scrutinized by the delegates and hundreds of attendees. After a thorough review, consisting of tough questions about immigration and taxes fielded by each candidate, the delegates made their conservative choice.

Coming as no surprise to many political watchers, while ending months of speculation for others, Assemblyman Joel Anderson (R-77) today made it official that he is seeking the San Diego-Riverside area Senate seat currently held by a term-limited Dennis Hollingsworth.

“I’m running for Senate because my work in the legislature is not done,” Anderson said. “California is at a tipping point and our state needs a strong conservative voice to stand up against calls for higher taxes, one who will fight to bring jobs back to our Golden State.”

The Draining of A Candidate: the Jeff Stone for State Senate Campaign

I have an admission to make: I did not have drinks with my old friend this time. I spoke to him on the telephone, late last night, on other matters, when he mentioned that political campaign disclosures were public on the internet, and that he’d been going through them for the last several hours. I asked him if there was anything interesting, and he launched on a short tirade, which I will attempt to repeat for the reader:
