Solorio for Junk Distributer

Two weeks ago, I didn’t really know who Jose Solorio was – I recognized his name from the Santa Ana City Council, but didn’t know him (he didn’t represent me). Now he’s running for Assembly in the 69th Assembly District, and boy, has he let us know it.

Starting about a week ago, I’ve gotten something new from his campaign every day. The first few mailers just told of his “Teach English” campaign. Then came the endorsement by a firefighting group, which including a nice little refrigerator magnet. The next day the potholders arrived – one potholder for me and one for the girlfriend – stamped with “Solorio for Assembly – Teach English!” in big blue text. The next day was more mailers, and yesterday the books came – small, bound books (not just pamphlets) telling Solorio’s story and views, in his own words.


Not that I don’t appreciate the potholders (we’ve never thought to get some – we have those latex 600 degree glove things), but he’s sending me more crap than the realtors in my neighborhood. The mailing costs alone must be in the thousands for these non-standard things. But lately, I’ve been going home for lunch every day wondering what new, useless thing I’ll find in my mailbox, and who exactly is paying for it.

    I have one just like that. But I’m not getting all the cool stuff you are getting. :(
