Important Information Regarding Today's Election

Posted June 5th, 2012 by Kevin D. Korenthal Kevin D. Korenthal in News
I wanted to take the opportunity in this very important election season to fill you in on the happenings of several offices that will be on the ballot here in the 25th Congressional and 38th Assembly Districts on Tuesday, June 5th. I think this is the first year that I have offered commentary on local races which I ascribe to the massive increase in dissatisfaction that voters here have with the status quo.
If you live in the 25th Congressional or 38th Assembly District this information is critical. If you don't live in these districts, you might still find it interesting.
As you may already know, entrenched incumbents from both parties are experiencing the most robust challenges to their incumbency that they have ever experienced. 25th District Congressman Howard "Buck" McKeon is just such an incumbent. After 20 years in Congress, voters are itching for new leadership. His failure to bring a bill before Congress that would end a 10 year battle against a multi-national mining firm from Mexico has relieved even stalwart McKeon voters of their passion for him.
Mr. McKeon has also been hounded by accusations that he took a sweetheart loan from Countrywide at the top of the mortgage bubble and that this gift was payment for his role in helping Congress look the other way as private equity lenders like Countrywide made a very bad situation far worse than it would have been if the mortgage bundling fraud been limited to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
These items alone have not energized his opponents nearly as much as his decision to run his wife Patricia McKeon for Assembly against popular local resident Scott Wilk. Scott has helped shape Santa Clarita with his work on preserving Open Spaces, providing room for expansion at our local mall and through his work as an elected member of the College of the Canyons Board of Trustees.
Patricia McKeon is a housewife (not that there is anything wrong with that) who has “earned” over $500,000 as McKeon's campaign treasurer, a job that usually comes with a salary of about $1000 per month. But more importantly, Patricia has proven in the few debates she has agreed to participate in that when she is not reading from prepared remarks, she is completely clueless as to the local and statewide problems we face.
Last Tuesday, KCAL 9 News did an in-depth report on both Congressman McKeon's significant hurdles to re-election and the bitter battle he set off with the decision to run his unqualified wife for State Assembly.  Watch and/or read it here.
This is why I humbly ask all those who will have the opportunity to vote in the 25th Congressional or 38th Assembly races (and by the looks of the absentee returns, many of you are going to the polls on Tuesday) to please consider voting with this Conservative Voter Guide that was put together by our local California Republican Assembly and TEA Party groups. I would especially ask that you vote Scott Wilk for 38th Assembly Representative and Dante Acosta for 25th District Congressional Representative.
Take my commentary today for what it is: The opinion of a 30 year resident of the Districts and a pretty politically astute public relations guy. I wish you and yours the best and look forward to any comments you would like to send my way.
