As Audra Stricklands time in the state assembly draws to a close, and with little to show for it save a steady paycheck, she has announced she will move to Thousand Oaks and run against popular fellow Republican Linda Parks for County Supervisor. Parks, who enjoys rare bi-partisan support, was elected District 2 Supervisor in 2002 and was re-elected in 2006.
In making her announcement, Strickland blasted Parks as being a carpetbagger from Berkeley. It was a rough start for Strickland with this swing and a miss as Parks has never lived in Berkeley. In fact, it is Strickland who re-registered to vote in the 2nd Supervisoral District only two weeks ago for the sole purpose of qualifying to run.
Strickland cited support and urging from the GOP Central Committee in her decision to run and has stated that she was surprised by a recent push poll they commissioned which attempted to discredit Parks record. It is interesting to note that the GOP Central Committee members include Stricklands husband Tony Strickland, her mother-in-law, a former staff member and his wife, a business partner, and a businessman who has received more that 1.5 million in business from the Stricklands. Additionally, the majority of past campaign funding for Strickland has come from outside of her district and included contributions from big tobacco, horse racing, and indian gambling interests.
Apparent lies and deception arent a great start to a campaign. If this were a ball game, Id yell strike three, youre out!
