Which name do you think influences voters the most?

TONY STRICKLAND FORMS PUBLIC SAFETY ADVISORY COMMITTEE

Tony Strickland is pleased to announce that he has formed an advisory committee on public safety which consists of the top law enforcement officials in our community and will serve as a valuable resource for this important issue.
Members of the committee include Ventura County Sheriff Bob Brooks, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca, Ventura County District Attorney Greg Totten, former Ventura County Deputy District Attorney Jeff Gorell, CHP District Director Shawn Stevens, Ventura County Fire Chief Bob Roper, former Santa Barbara Sheriff Jim Thomas and Thousand Oaks City Councilmember and former Chief of Police Dennis Gillette, all of whom support Strickland's bid for State Senate.

"It is critical that we have representatives in Sacramento who understand the needs of law enforcement and will work to make our families safe. Tony Strickland not only understands this but has always remained committed to making public safety his top priority. The creation of the Public Safety Advisory Committee will strengthen Tony's solid safety record by providing access to a wealth of public safety knowledge and experience," said Sheriff Brooks.

Strickland has a strong record of supporting public safety throughout his career. While serving in the State Assembly he supported numerous measures that provided law enforcement with the tools to more effectively protect the public.

"One of the most important jobs of government is to protect public safety. If we don't feel safe in our homes, schools and neighborhoods then it is difficult to focus on anything else. I am grateful to have so many highly qualified and experienced law enforcement leaders stand with me in this effort," said Strickland.

Let me see if I have this right. Hannah-Beth Jackson gets the endorsement of the Ventura County Sheriffs Department's Officers, so Strickland announces he has the endorsement of law enforcement. Hmmmm. Looks to me like Jackson has 1,000 officers (score 1,000 for Jackson) and Strickland has two elected Republican Police Chiefs. Score 2 for Strickland.

Are you kidding me. This is the same Taxtion Jackson who supported more than 15 new state taxes. This is the same Jackson who voted yes on Gay Marriage. Is this the same Jackson who voted against the Death Penalty. She has no business running in Ventura County. She was voted the Most Liberal Democrat in the Assembly all 6 years she served. NO WAY - I'll vote for anyone but her.

I replaced your name so people don't confuse your name with another poster that has written comments here before.

What a joke! None of the rank and file support Strickland, only the politicians who play cop or fireman and are hoping for some campaign money from Tony!

No surprises on the list Brian - it's the good ole boys club. Their nails are worn down from scratching each others backs.

Hannah-Beth Jackson is the only candidate in the race with on-the-job experience protecting the public as a member of law enforcement. She was an Assistant District Attorney. Her credentials in this area are reflected by her endorsements in the law enforcement community, including:

Pat Miller, City of Ventura Police Chief
Mike Tracy, City of Ventura Police Chief (Ret.)
Bill Brown, Sheriff, Santa Barbara County
PORAC- Police Officers Research Association of California
Santa Barbara Deputy Sheriff's Association
Santa Barbara Police Officers Association
Ventura County Deputy Sheriffs' Association
Ventura County Professional Peace Officers Association

When she was in the Assembly, state taxes went down. Also, I don't think there is a Most Liberal Democrat in the Assembly contest. (Was there a Most Far-Right contest and who would have won that?)

She's also not opposed to the death penalty.

Greg Totten ought to be ashamed of himself. Looks like even Michael Bradbury knows to distance himself from the Stricklands.

I remember talk about Tony Strickland voting for illegal aliens to be able to get a license to drive. Is this true? Has anyone heard or know what his rationale on that vote was or of Jackson voted the same way?

Taxan Jackson is in favor of granting driver's licenses to illegal aliens. Strickland is opposed to it.

It is true according to this article that Tony Strickland once favored giving a license to drive to illegal aliens:

http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/state/20040430-9999-1n30license.html

If he doesn't believe that any longer when did he stop believing it? Is there an error in the article? Maybe his friends in law enforcement convinced him it was a decent idea.

I don't know what Hannah Beth Jackson believes on this issue but I am interested to find out.

That's a bunch of hooey! I talked to Tony this week and he's definitely against the idea.

Hannah-Beth, on the other hand, is right on board with "One-Bill Gil" (Cedillo) on passing this legislation. That would be the worst thing we could possibly do!

BTW, I notice the environmentalists are all up in arms over the construction of a fence to protect our borders. That's just an excuse by the left to support open borders. The reality is illegal aliens are the ones causing all the environmental damage on the border by trashing the border areas and adjacent towns.

It is true that Tony Strickland voted for a bill that dealt with the right to drive for illegal aliens but there is more to the story.

Here is a report from Timm Herdt:

Mongo, did you bother to research it before you posted?

My research consisted of asking Strickland face-to-face and he said he definitely doesn't support it. I'm sure you're aware, the papers sometimes get it wrong, Brian.

I am not saying he currently supports it.

But multiple papers have reported he voted on it while in the state assembly.

Are you saying the San Diego paper and Timm Herdt are wrong?

Why don't you research it?

You haven't denied he voted for it, you are saying he currently doesn't support it.

There is a difference.

He voted on a compromise bill supported by Assembly Democrats.

Strickland will say anything to anybody to get votes.

Ask him about gay marriage. He was adamently against it when he held assembly office. What to do..what to do. SB probably supports it but VC doesn't.

Brian, I concede that he voted for a compromise bill. Politicians make deals all the time. I don't agree with what he did, but I'm convinced he knows he was wrong in voting for it.

Don't forget, Hillary voted to authorize the war in Iraq, which she's now ardently opposed to and so did Kerry, before he voted against it, of course.

Tony supported the bill for Drivers Licenses for illegals. It's all a matter of public record. So did Hannah Beth, so that is a zero sum game/issue in this race, no matter how much Tony would like to twist it to play a not so subtle race card.

He loves to go dirty on that issue, just like he did on his fellow Republican Abel Maldonado, when they were both running for the Controller nomination.

Yeah right, Laura. You know darn well that there's nothing racist about requiring illegal aliens to follow the law, regarding drivers licenses or any other aspect of the law that they currently flout.

The Democrat Party are the ones who love to play the race card whenever anything is brought up in the way of legislation to secure our borders and/or require employers to verify citizenship before hiring their employees.

The Democrat Party needs to be more intellectually honest with voters if they expect to win the local dog catcher's race, never mind the White House.

All that is nice, Mongo, but I didn't see you correct Laura on the fact that she alleged that Strickland voted to give drivers licenses to illegals. What could have possibly led Strickland to do something that stupid?

CAP-812, it's called politics, my friend. It's all about I'll scratch yours later if you scratch mine now. Strickland does it just as everyone else in Sacramento does.

Didn't you read my prior post to Brian on this, or do you only read the liberal posts?
