Candidate Censorship


I request of the constituents to uphold their oath to run a clean electoral campaign without prejudice and public censorship in my candidacy for City Council. Time to stand in solidarity for free political speech.

It’s unfortunate, the Chamber of Commerce, Business Council public forum intentionally excluded my candidacy. What did it mean when Mr. Amerikaner said he hosts only “viable” candidates so adamantly over the phone this morning? His rejection and not revealing the forum location goes against all the principles for open and free democratic discussions and exchange of ideas in America. This intentional political censorship goes against the electoral process. I plan to report this censored political public act to the State FPPC [Fair Political Practices Commission].

I have written local media and councilmember candidates to make them aware of the censorship. Thanks for the political act which makes me more determined than ever; it only adds to your unfairness and my political ganas! ¡Es todo!

This is a political challenge: I propose a debate with anyone you propose in a healthy economic debate. My preparation and completion of my micro-economic analysis make me be able and capable of positively growing this municipality’s economy in theory and give financial measures that are monetarily practicable. Bring it on, and I will show how viable I am in all respects to economics and theories of our local economic indicators. Even with your rudeness, I continue to believe that our taxpayers’ currency can be the people and not economics.
