JOSE SOLORIO KICKS OFF TV AD CAMPAIGN FOR STATE SENATE RACE
Television Commercials Discuss Opponent Supervisor Janet Nguyen’s Ethical Lapses And Her Effort To Circumvent Proposition 13 Taxpayer Protections
SANTA ANA – The Solorio for State Senate Campaign has kicked off an aggressive television ad campaign with the heavy rotation of two different commercials criticizing opponent Janet Nguyen for using her Orange County Supervisor office budget to benefit her inner circle and for circumventing Proposition 13 taxpayer protections by voting for paramedic fees for seniors and people requiring “advanced life support.”
The television commercials point out that Orange County Supervisor Janet Nguyen:
Paid her highest ranking County Supervisor aide a total of $105,420 a year for working an average of only 13 hours a week in the county office (www.ocregister.com/articles/ nguyen-505918-lecong-office. html);
Paid her husband’s business partner a salary from her Supervisor office account (http://www.voiceofoc.org/ countywide/county_government/ article_2ce6155e-793e-11e3- a067-0019bb2963f4.html? TNNoMobile); and,
Voted to utilize a loophole to get around Proposition 13 property tax protections and charge seniors and people requiring “advanced life support” from paramedics an extra $400 ambulance fee. Critics, including two of her colleagues on the County Board of Supervisors, felt that the fee was unnecessary and repetitive (http://www.ocregister.com/ articles/fee-607018-ambulance- fire.html).
