So Where Does Tom Daly Stand on Redevelopment Expansion?


The proposed vast expansion of Fullerton’s Redevelopment Project Area is an issue with countywide implications. The County Board of Supervisors has established a policy of opposition to the expansion: practically because it will divert property tax from other governmental agenices; and, philosophically because it raises the specter of eminent domain, and potential impacts to businesses and residents, alike.

Since Mr. Daly is running for 4th District Supervisor to replace Chris Norby we wonder what kind of position he might take on this issue, if any, before the May hearing at our city council. Fullerton City Councilman Shawn Nelson, an oft-rumored opponent of Daly, has already staked out a position of opposition to this intrusive government expansion.


When Daly was mayor of Anaheim the that city pursued an active role of redevelopment sterilization and homogenization – just the sort of thing many Fullertonians are justifiably concerned about.

    Daly is the sort of guy that is comfortable having “the experts” make decisions about both “economic development” and design determination.

    Butreally, who cares what he thinks about this? he is what he is – a government expansionist. Why bother asking?

    Is Daly wearing Mickey Mouse ears? How appropriate!

    I agree with #1. Tom is an expander. He expanded his office to downtown Fullerton where he could pander for some votes.

    Well Supervisor Norby, it appears that Mr. Daly has no stance on this issue. Of course that makes sense since the lobbyist Lewis has not told Tom what to do or think on this issue yet. meanwhile, I see that bold Mr. nelson is willing to lead with his principles and stake his flag right in the heart of your old city staff.

    If you have any principals Supervisor Norby you will join those of us freedom lovers and do what you can to help Nelson in his lonely fight

    Recently one of our good friends over at the Register called Tom Daly to find out about his position on Fullerton’s big government land grab, but he was reluctant to return the call. His silence on the issue tells us that Daly is a big government eminent domain kind of guy, exactly what to expect from a guy who has worked for government his ENTIRE life.
