Did Tony Bushala and Jack Dean give us Josh Newman?

The group Fullerton Taxpayers for Reform  was responsible for these campaign signs during the June 2016 primary election against State Senate candidate Sukhee Kang.

The signs reading “No Kang – Irvine Carpetbagger”  were paid for by the Fullerton committee called Fullerton Taxpayers for Reform  whose principal officers are none other than Tony Bushala and Jack Dean.

Jack Dean

Tony Bushala

Josh Newman

Was this “No Kang Irvine Carpetbagger”  campaign designed to pave the way for none other than Josh Newman to write his ticket for the November ballot? Well there WERE NO OTHER DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES IN THE RACE for the June Primary and I certainly didn’t see Dean and Bushala’s group supporting Ling Ling Chang the Republican challenger.

Were the intentions of the Fullerton Taxpayers for Reform to knock Kang out of the primary election, so that Newman would end up on the November ballot and perhaps win?  Well thanks to the help of Jack Dean and Tony Bushala, Newman defeated Kang in the June primary. Locally, it worked like a charm. Newman, would not only end up on the November ballot, he actually won the election. So what could have been the motivations of Tony Bushala and Jack Dean to inject their group and exert its influence into a Senate primary election? Was it to ensure Josh Newman’s place in Sacramento? Everyone knew that the anti Trump sentiment among the Latinos was going to fair well for the Democrats in this part of Orange County. Any politically savy individual would know that massive Latino voting block coupled with the illegals that have been registered to vote all showed up in droves. That is how we ended up with Jesus Silva on the City Council and Sharon Quirk Silva in the Assembly both edging out Republicans.

Does Bushala’s meddling in this Senate race have anything to do with development? Is Jack Dean just along for the ride unaware of the Bushala high rise development agenda? We do know that an end run around local control over high density housing approvals has been the subject of several bills out of Sacramento just this year. It would certainly bode well for Bushala to bypass his plants on the council which have been hogtied by the relentless pressure of local activists.

Then we have the Shawn Nelson school of political science at work-focus on a narrow item like a tax and make it all about that. That is what Tony’s tool Sebourn did during the recall.

Nelson-Bushala’s buddy

Isn’t it ironic how Bushala’s blog, The Friends for Fullerton’s Future is currently hosting articles that are promoting the recall of Josh Newman and they make it all about a gas tax? What did you expect e Democrat to do, vote down a tax increase?

This kind of reminds me of the Bush Family funding and The Ford Motor Company selling equipment to both the Allied Troops and the Nazis at the same time. Then again, this is how political operatives play the game. They work both sides to their advantage.

Well folks, I cannot prove that Bushala was behind Newman all along but then again, the circumstantial evidence sure leads me to that conclusion and of course, political operatives can turn on someone on a dime when the wind starts blowing the wrong way. We sure have seen plenty of that in Fullerton.

No matter what the outcome of this recall and the subsequent elections, you have my word that we will continue to objectively work towards draining the swamp at City Hall, exposing and ridding Fullerton of its political operatives and continue fighting these creeps that want to turn Fullerton into downtown LA. On this my friends, you have my word.

    Does it occur to people that all of Bushala’s involvement over the years was centered around expanding the value of the family’s holdings? Now he wants to put some more bars in downtown. Great, just what Fullerton needs.

    The sad reality is that Ling Ling would have beaten Kang in the November election. Too many people in Fullerton fell for Newman and his political whitewash. He got elected by saying virtually nothing yet the good people of Fullerton are the ones that put him over the top and got him elected. Finally someone exposing dirty Tony for what he is, a self serving slumlord who uses people.

      Nothing like a minor fiscal boondoggle bonafide diversion run by Tony’s phonies to let the entire city turn section 8 and R-2 overnight passed by Tony’s tools.

    Bushala had everything to do with Newman getting elected. Bushala wants friends in Sacramento because he already has his friends he bought and paid for in Fullerton and he needs to make sure his bought and paid for friends in Sacramento can pass laws making it easier to develop his properties.

      Right now he’s playing his low-level minions like Ferguson, Paden, and Curlee against his tools on the council. Ferguson brings things up and lets Tony’s tools on the council just ignore him. What a total waste.

    It is important to point out that there are those of us that are either new to Fullerton or from another city, yet in Senator Newman’s district. They are clueless about Fullerton’s political history if it is dirty or not when posting to any Fullerton website. Many intelligent and well meaning people that do not know the background of all the websites in Fullerton, are posting on them right now and other cities too. After reading the article what is one to do? Stop posting and silence their shared beliefs and even frustrations because they do not know what website to believe? Do not have time to do a website history when it is not obvious who leans which way in some cases? People mentioned have no clue who to believe because everyone has a story to tell and time does not allow them to research who owns what website and what is their motives. I have no idea the background of this website either but I am posting because this article had me concerned on who to believe and where to post in Fullerton. Honestly pointing this out only because people will continue to post on all websites in Fullerton and other cities also that are negatively impacted by Senator Newman’s voting record already. They may not be informed about the websites history or the people behind it but they are informed on the gas tax and other issues hitting their pocketbooks and are seriously worried and concerned. Not to take away from the article posted because only those who have background history would know and that was not mentioned in the article about those who may not. Each city within Senator Newman’s district has the same thing going on like this article mentions, and being frightened off to post to any website would mean just silencing any opposition to being overtaxed. Just one more voice silenced due to fear of what website to trust. I am sure you can appreciate that and put yourself in our shoes, since that needed to be remembered. Thank you Fullerton Informer for understanding.

      I post on both websites because I think it’s important to share what I know with others who are concerned about Fullerton and doing the right thing for it’s residents.


      I trust Joe to ALWAYS tell the truth when no one else is and know that he cares deeply about others and has sacrificed greatly to make Fullerton a better place for everyone.

        Maybe you need your head examined Fullerton lover

        • #13 by Fullerton's Conscience on June 25, 2017 - 12:54 pm

          Fullerton Lover obviously is a problem for the Fullerton Government establishment crowd for he/she is a decent, caring and concerned Fullerton resident.

          We know that type of citizen is a direct threat to the likes of our City Council. Is it any wonder why our city is in such bad shape, when our city council views good, involved, honest Fullerton citizens as their enemies.

            When you go to war against your enemies and see horses and chariots and an army greater than yours, do not be afraid of them, because the LORD your God, who brought you up out of Egypt, will be with you…

      Trusting the site run by a guy who thinks the earth is flat is the obvious decision.

        Tony Bushala is a selfless, upstanding citizen who has never been divorced, who doesn’t drink or smoke or do drugs, who maintains his properties in primo condition, treats his tenants with great respect and concern and always tells the truth. Bushala is Fullerton’s hero. Listen to him.

      • #17 by Anonymous on June 24, 2017 - 10:19 am

        Bushala gave us Bruce Whitaker and Jennifer Fitzgerald and Greg Seaborn. Now he wants to give us a 300 pound sack of shit in a 20 pound bag for a supervisor.

    For all those loyal to our CIty Council, DAN HUGHES and his corrupt inner circle at the FPD, please provide one example where you provide evidence that any of my posts were incorrect. If your comments about me are true you should have no problem giving the readers numerous examples. Put up or stop with all the lies and character assassination.

    Jack Dean Mr Whitaker and Mr Bushala’s sock puppet. Pension crisis on the brain and wilfully ignorant, silent and blind to everything else. What a guy.
