Site up for 72nd Assembly Candidate Esiquio Uballe

Esiquio Uballe, the Democratic candidate in the 72nd Assembly district has put up a campaign web site. Uballe is challenging Republican Assemblyman Chris Norby.

From his site,

"Dr. Esiquio Uballe is a proven leader in education, with a long history of working with the community and families to show how higher education can build better lives and stronger communities.

Staying competitive in the global economy is key for Orange County's future. Being able to win depends on how well our workforce is prepared. Tomorrow's workforce is today's student. Help keep California's dream alive by strengthening our workforce by rebuilding our education system.

At one time, California's economy and education were the envy of the world. We need the leadership in Sacramento to make that happen again.

OC needs real leadership in Sacramento. Our residents deserve better than rubber stamp "No" votes time after time.

We need an Assembly member who will bring home job creating programs to get our local economy moving again. OC needs to get our good jobs back - the jobs that let our county lead the state in economic growth and a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Uballe is that Assembly member."

Website up for 61st Assembly Republican Candidate Ray Moors

Ray Moors, the Republican candidate in the 61st Assembly District, has put up a campaign website. The 61st is currently represented by Democratic Assemblywoman Norma Torres.

Some of Moors' "platform,"

"I will research and propose legislation that will bring businesses back to California."

"I will propose legislation that will remove the boot of the state unions and lobbyists from the throats of the middle class taxpayer and small business owner."

"I will support to have a new State Constitutional Convention that will model our constitution after our nations which is 4400 words long and with 27 amendments. Presently, our state constitution is an incomprehensible 40,000 word, attorney written, legal morass of English and Latin with over 500 revisions and amendments."

"I will propose legislation to put a halt to the Eco-Economic Police bureaucrats that are destroying our economy, shutting down businesses and leaving families without employment and paychecks."

"I support legal immigration only. Giving amnesty leaves us with millions who have entered this country illegally only to live off the hard work of taxpayers. Many are criminals, and career welfare recipients. Legal immigration provides this country with the professionals, the industrious and law abiding immigrants which this country welcomes and needs."
