With 100% of precincts counted, Measure O fails.                                        Board of Directors just wasted half a million dollars of taxpayer money on this election.                                        Criminal complaints against the district will continue to be pursued.                                        Criminal and FPPC complaints against the Astro-Turfers will continue to be pursued.                                        Your property taxes based on indebtedness will now go down, as they should.                                        

Campaign Dirty Tricks

If you've paid attention to local elections in the past, you know that local politics is some of the dirtiest there is.

The Walnut - Diamond Bar area is famous for a list of routine dirty tricks that are always pulled out whenever the puppeteers behind the scenes feel threatened by regular people. Here's what you can expect.

In the sleepy little Walnut Valley, this is what amounts to high drama.

Anyone who's aware of the this character (Mr. PR) should know that he's been either on the payroll of or a hired gun of the Walnut Valley Unified School District in the past. He may still be, but for this election the Board went with the high-priced guys in San Francisco.

I have some personal insight into this character as well. You might remember that Nadine Brown published a monthly magazine that was delivered by mail to everyone in Walnut and many in Diamond Bar. It was called the Walnut Times. Nadine didn't have a domain name for her magazine back then. Mr. PR was starting his weekly litter company in the late 1990's. He bought the domain name walnuttimes.com and had it pointed to his Walnut Weekly News (the name at the time). So anyone that might be searching the Internet for Nadine's magazine might end up on Mr. PR's web site. When the complaint was sent to ICANN (the judges of Internet disputes), Mr. PR didn't defend his actions and eventually lost the domain. That's just the kind of guy he is.
