Coto de Caza Truth Or Consequences

September 27,  2006   

Earlier this morning we spent close to two hours with Mayor of the City of Laguna Nigel Cathryn DeYoung & Candidate for Orange County Supervisor, Fifth District  and Lt. Col. Bill Kogerman. 
From the information we have been able to compile so far, a picture is starting to emerge:
On the one hand, there is an articulate candidate who is passionate about public safety.  In the words of former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani from his speech at DMD New York in June 2002 when he was asked by an audience member how he got crime under control, he replied the city set up the right tracking metrics and benchmarks. Giuliani said, "If you can't measure it, you can't manage it; and you can't manage it if you are not measuring it."   Taking a page out of Rudy’s playbook, she has metrics at her command, including “peak hours” and profiles of perpetrators, highlighting areas for law enforcement agents to focus their efforts on.
On the other hand, there is a candidate who talks up her endorsement by an unidentified South Orange County Deputy Sheriff.  We understand these to be code words for “The Union”.
Then there is the candidate using the Orange County Register’s questionable reporting as sales collateral, and filing lawsuits to shut down critics.
Then there is the issue of accessibility:  One candidate is readily accessible and willing to respond to questions.  On the other hand, there is a candidate who has failed to respond to various invitations.
One for fiscal responsibility.  One for subsidizing organizations.
A casual voter may believe that we are discussing the Coto de Caza board of Directors.  Another casual voter may think we are discussing a responsive republican candidate impersonating a democratic candidate and vice versa:  Given that both candidates are registered Republican, can any one guess who the REAL Republican is?
