So Now We Know

Some recent commenters on our humble blog have wondered aloud who outgoing Mayor-for-Hire, Jennifer Fitzgerald was going to pick to be her choice for successor. Now we know.

Look familiar? Not to me, either…

Today a Friend forwarded some sort of statement (an English version) from a fellow by the name of Andrew Cho. Who is this person? Nobody I’ve asked today has ever heard of the guy; but, one thing is certain: he was chosen to be a reliable vote for all the things the Curt Pringle lobbyist Fitzgerald holds near and dear. I’d rather not slam the guy right out of the chute, but, hell, just look at who this mysterious person reports as his endorsers.

First, of course is the utterly unspeakable Fitzgerald.

Leaving Fullerton City hall a lot worse off than she found it…

If that weren’t bad enough, number two (and I really mean number two), the completely corrupt Dick Ackerman whose record running a fake non-profit to pay his wife, creating a fake address so she could run for the legislature in our district, and illegally participating as a lobbyist to promote the 2008 OC Fair swindle, have been well-documented on these pages.

Oh no, not again.

Next we discover Ling Ling Chang, our current State Senator who originally ran for office pretending to own a business and attending Harvard. Both were lies, but that mendacity didn’t seem to put a dent in her armor of shamelessness.

Ling Ling shocked by some new liberal outrage!

Then there’s the support of Young Kim, the bubbleheaded perpetual candidate and her slimy husband Charles, who foisted the incomprehhensible nitwit Julie Sa on Fullerton way back in 1992.

No there, there…

Of course poor Cho must not have a clue that these endorsements will do a lot more harm than good, and if he doesn’t yet, he soon will.

    That’s quite a rogue’s’s gallery for endorsers. You get the feeling this guy is just a puppet for what’s left of Fullerton’s degenerate old guard. We can expect enthusiastic support from Larry Bennett and Jan Flory, Doc HeeHaw and Chief McPension.

    You sure it was Charles Kim who saddled us with Julie Sa? I thought it was Korean grocery magnate Ellis Cha.

      Charles Kim foisted upon us a woman, Julie Sa, who did not even live in Fullerton. Got away with it for almost 8 years.

    Didn’t he run in the …state Senate?… race?
    His signs are still up in some places.
    Ran as a Democrat as I recall.
    Willing to be wrong on this, but I am not impressed.

    Dude’s got a Facebook page that suddenly came to life after 5 years of hibernation:

    “My top priorities will be fiscal responsibility, protecting public safety, and increasing business development in Fullerton.”

    And his taste in K-Pop is questionable at best

      Fiscal responsibility.

      Sure buddy.

      And the budget is balanced.

    • #8 by Johnny Rotten on July 22, 2020

      “Protecting public safety” = Will take all police and fire union campaign contributions in exchange for support of all police and fire union salary and pension increases.
      No thanks….

      • #9 by Prince Albert in a Can on July 22, 2020

        My thoughts exactly. Those full-color campaign flyers are quite expensive to print and mail, and someone’s gotta pay for all those. For those in the back of the class, that means police and fire unions will cover those printing and mailing costs for the good Mr. Cho, since he promotes ‘protecting public safety.’

        I already don’t trust this guy, so please prove me wrong Mr. Cho.

    • #10 by No Thanks! on July 22, 2020

      Yeah, this guy was plucked out of obscurity by that Charles Kim guy at the behest of Fitzgerald. “We need a Korean Repuglican to keep the machine running.”

      Having Ackerman’s blessing is like being endorsed by Jeffery Epstein.

      “And his taste in K-Pop is questionable at best”

      This guy must be 60 years old. That’s just weird.

      • #12 by Prince Albert in a Can on July 22, 2020

        Weirder still is the K-Pop video he posted on his timeline. Yeesus.

    Hold on while we dig up some skeletons in his closet.

  6. #14 by Fullerton Flyer on July 22, 2020

    Is there even another candidate in District 1?

    With three open seats this pandemic year, I fear that he with the first campaign sign wins.

    • #15 by Fullerton Historian on July 22, 2020

      Fred Jung is running. Hes’s got some backing plus has a history in the community

  7. #16 by Anonymous on July 23, 2020

    Ackerman is still alive?

    • #17 by Anonymous on July 23, 2020

      Oops. I meant is Julie Sa still alive? Someone ask Charles Kim, quick.

    He’s a poor man’s Roland Chi.

  9. #19 by JC on July 28, 2020

    I’ve actually had a chance to listen in on him speak. He’s not a politician, which I think is good. He knows the law, he has a genuine interest in serving his community, regardless of ethnic or political, and he wants to see a thriving Fullerton. I find nothing wrong with his platform of stimulating businesses, ensuring public safety, and making sure city money goes back to what the constituents want. People say is he’s a nobody, but how much luck have we had with people was a “somebody?” He’s been a Fullerton resident since 1979. He came back to raise his children here because he loves Fullerton. I’m voting for the guy.

    • #20 by Fullerton Old Timer on July 28, 2020

      How funny. guy with no record of community service pops up like a spring weed with the backing of THE WORST people in Fullerton past and present? That’s what you want go with??

    • #21 by Get Lost on July 28, 2020

      He supports Fitzgerald’s 17% tax increase. What a guy. Gotta protect FitzFlory’s overpaid bloatacrats in City Hall. They’re the “heart of the city.”

    • #22 by Curious on July 29, 2020

      “He knows the law”. For Pete’s sake, he’s a freaking bankruptcy attorney, you screwball, JC.

    • #23 by Savvy Shopper on July 29, 2020

      Knows the law. He went to Walmart Law School.

  10. #24 by ADLENA on August 4, 2020

    Fred Jung has my support! I just read Fitzgerald’s endorsement. I didn’t know Fitzgerald lived in District 1!!! Also, Andrew Cho seems really jazzed about the endorsements he received from people who I disagree with. Since he has only offered vague promises so-far, I have to assume he will govern like his endorsers.

    • #25 by Anonymous on August 5, 2020

      Govern? How about looting?

  11. #26 by Elliott on August 7, 2020

    So Jung is endorsed by Josh Newman and the big taxing and spending crew and Cho is Fitzgerald’s pick to replace her. Which leaves us in district 1 with a tough choice to Make. I read Cho’s statement and it looks ok….idk.
