GOP East Bay assembly candidate is using a variation of Make America Great Again

Assembly candidate Bob Brunton
fell short during campaigns in
2014 and 2016.
25TH ASSEMBLY DISTRICT
Republican Bob Brunton's slogan for a second attempt at beating Assemblymember Kansen Chu in the South Bay's 25th District might sound familiar to many.

"Together we can make California the best--again," says Brunton's new campaign web site. The slogan evokes President Donald Trump's famous "Make America Great Again" moniker that helped him defeat Hillary Clinton last year.

Brunton lost to Chu, a Democrat, in the 2014 and 2016 General Elections. Neither contest was competitive as Chu benefitted from institutional party support and greatly outspent Brunton.

Previously Brunton served 12 years as an elected member of the Ohlone Community College District Board of Trustees. He filed an intent to run for the seat in September.

The 25th Assembly District represents Santa Clara County, but also bleeds into Fremont in Alameda County.

Describing himself as a reform candidate, Brunton is offering what appears to be the six "Rs' for fixing California, according to his web site. Reduce taxes, respect taxpayers and citizens, reinvent the public education system, restructure the state bureacracy, and restore trust in government.

"People don't believe what elected officials tell them any more. Remember when we used to call them elected representatives?" Brunton wrote. "People think many in government are there only to further themselves, and to a large extent these days, they are right. The corruption has progressed beyond all rhyme or reason. We have to change that, and we can!"

    Concerning the last paragraph of this article, how can Brunton say such a thing. For instance in California the state legislature is primarily made up of phonies, parasites, and scam artists who pretend to be liberals, and who although they are also bloodsucking leeches. I am sure are still totally trustworthy and wonderful people.

    In fact, we should have those parasites, but who pretend to be liberals, in the state legislature pass various laws that will create an "improved" form of "free speech" in which it will be illegal to tell the truth about the scam artists and bloodsucking leeches in high places.
