BIG OIL, unions, real estate and developer interests have so far spent $215,298.64 to smear Guy Houston and ensure Mary Piepho retains her Supervisor seat. That’s an awful lot of money changing hands to not be noticed by an ace political reporter.
Could it be that this huge amount of money is probably more important to our polity than the distraction Vorderbrueggen has whipped up over dissecting each campaign mailer. This money will effect the future of Contra Costa County in so many ways: the Urban Limit Line, Prop 90, negotiations with the refineries concerning taxes, jobs, safety, and pollution, fiscal solvency, not to mention upcoming union negotiations, to name just a few critical items the Board of Supervisors must manage in the interest of taxpayers not the interests of campaign contributors.
Unfortunately, Lisa Vorderbrueggen doesn’t want you to know this number which is available at the County. She made damn sure Contra Costa Times readers knew Sheriff Rupf spent $12,500 of his own money on his mailer denouncing Piepho. But she chose not to spill the beans about the outrageous money being spent to defeat Guy Houston by her girl friends who not only have her ear but direct hundreds of thousands of dollars of PAC money and Independent Expenditures to keep a pliant Mary Nejedly Pieho in office.
Shame on Lisa Vorderbrueggen who has squandered the public’s trust.
Shame on the Contra Costa Times for allowing such unchecked bias.
Contra Costans deserve the truth. Not just what a bent reporter decides is in the best interest of her gal pals.
Time for full disclosure, Lisa!
