Big turn-out for Torrico's bid to become next state attorney general

Original post made on Nov 30, 2009

State Assembly Majority Leader Alberto Torrico brought his campaign for California attorney general to Pleasanton earlier this month, greeting scores of well-heeled supporters who gathered for the $250-a-ticket fundraiser on the colonnade behind Joe Johal's multi-million-dollar home high in the hills in the Grey Eagle estates.

Dems are taking over Pleasanton! Things are changing in Pleasanton, and more and more Pleasanton conservatives will flee to the Central Valley.

It would be so funny, if it weren't so tragic. This is the Editor's third posting of this event. The first 2 (1 identical) got too many negative comments about this guy and his surpporters. So in true PW fashion, move to the top (like it's new) hoping for fresh positive comments. Usually they eliminate what they don't want showing. At least they left the negative first comments on Torrico, you just have to scroll down a couple more postings.
Sort of like the way team Obama handles media he doesn't like...got rid of John Stossle and Lou Dobbs.

This is funny...3 times at the top. Would some of you start posting positives about this guy so this post can go away. Anderson-there are conservative Democrats and liberal Republicans and nobody is going to "flee to the central valley" or anywhere else. Pleasanton is 39% Dem. and 35% Rep. and 26% Ind.or other. I hardly think that the Dems control Pleasanton.

Web Link I'm thrilled that a candidate like Mr. Alberto Torrico is running for the Office of Attorney General in CA! HOORAY!!!

What's especially impressive is that the is supported by the Law Enforcement & Fire Department communities!

Mr. Torrico is a highly qualified candidate and a good natured man with a wonderful family!!!

VIVA ALBERTO! VIVA!!!

PW sends EXPRESS emails about TODAY"S stories, so PW posts for the THIRD time the Big Torrico event WEEK OLD posting, which originally was already the THIRD time PW posted it. VERY OLD NEWS. He doesn't NEED PW help....EVERY PUBLIC EMPLOYEE AND PUBLIC EMPLOYEE UNION will SPEND their HUGE money pot and trash ANYBODY who runs against him. HE totally sells out taxpayers in favor of contract EXCESSES.

Torrico is a crook who slammed his first opponent, Tom Pico, with inaccurate information to win his election. Zebra, stripes? I think so.

Keep voting in Dems and we will keep getting what we've been getting...too much spending. business unfriendly, high unemployment, and money spent on boondoggle issues like global warming...

I say lets get rid of all the Dems that have controlled the CA legislature for years, putting us in the worst condition CA has ever known...
