Ammiano's offical Assembly page: http://democrats.assembly.ca.gov/members/a17/

[b]October 12, 2009:[/b] Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed Ammiano's AB 1176 concerned with financing of infrastructure projects at San Francisco's ports. On Oct. 27th the editor of the San Francisco Bay Guardian wrote about his observation of a hidden expletive phrase in the governor's veto message: "F#@k You." The governor's staffers dismissed the acrostic as coincidental but previous animosity between Ammiano and the governor (see Oct. 7, 2009, below) suggested a possibility that it was purposeful. The story was quickly circulated in national news outlets.

[b]2007:[/b] Salinas gained attention for her six-month relationship with Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who was married at the time.

Villaraigosa and his wife, Corina Villaraigosa, separated in June 2007 weeks before he confirmed that he was romantically involved with Salinas.

As a Telemundo news reporter, Salinas covered Mayor Villaraigosa and issues of education reform, immigration and public safety. On June 8, 2007, Salinas read on the air the news of Villaraigosa's marital breakup without disclosing that she had been romantically involved with the mayor for several months.

After the affair became public Salinas received a two-month suspension for her handling of the situation and was one of a handful of employees at Telemundo who were disciplined because of the affair. At the end of that suspension, Salinas was reassigned from her post as temporary anchor to a Telemundo bureau in Riverside County. Instead of returning to her job, she quit.

In November, 2007, Los Angeles Times reported that the Salinas and Villaraigosa ended their romantic relationship weeks earlier.

[b]July 1, 2008:[/b] Bustamante resigned from two state panels after he was reported to have made a remark about breast implants following the appointment of a woman as Orange County sheriff. Bustamante denies making the remark. He was appointed this year by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to the Fair Employment and Housing Commission and the California Council on Criminal Justice. Bustamante sent a resignation letter dated July 1 to John Cruz, Schwarzenegger's appointments secretary. The controversy stems from remarks he reportedly made on June 10 after the Orange County Board of Supervisors appointed Sandra Hutchens as sheriff. Santa Ana Police Chief Paul Walters had been in the running for the post. An Orange County blogger, Matt Cunningham, said Bustamante told him: "I kept telling the chief: 'Maybe we should get you some implants. Or a water bra.'" The Los Angeles Times also reported that one of its reporters clearly overheard the remark during the board meeting. The state Senate had not yet confirmed Bustamante to the employment and housing commission. The governor's office sent the Senate Rules Committee a letter Monday saying it was withdrawing Bustamante's nomination.

Bustamante is a councilmember representing Council Ward 3 in the City of Santa Ana. http://www.ci.santa-ana.ca.us/cm/cbustamante.asp

[b]Sept. 2011:[/b] Bustamante was put on administrative leave from his Orange County job after the county received an anonymous letter detailing allegations of a sexual nature against Bustamante. The City of Santa Ana is not investigating the allegations. Sources: http://taxdollars.ocregister.com/2011/09/19/four-women-named-in-bustamante-sex-allegations/97984/ and http://www.theliberaloc.com/2011/09/20/city-of-santa-ana-not-investigating-bustamante/

[b]Feb. 2011:[/b] Bustamante was promoted to executive manager overseeing Public Works’ Facilities and Fleet Services divisions in the County of Orange. His position is an at-will employee and he earned $178,277 in 2010, according to county pay data. Source: Orange County Register http://taxdollars.ocregister.com/2011/09/19/four-women-named-in-bustamante-sex-allegations/97984/ and http://www.ocregister.com/articles/county-303122-ceo-percent.html

[b]July 1, 2008:[/b] Bustamante resigned from two state panels after he was reported to have made a remark about breast implants following the appointment of a woman as Orange County sheriff. Bustamante denies making the remark. He was appointed this year by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to the Fair Employment and Housing Commission and the California Council on Criminal Justice. Bustamante sent a resignation letter dated July 1 to John Cruz, Schwarzenegger's appointments secretary. The controversy stems from remarks he reportedly made on June 10 after the Orange County Board of Supervisors appointed Sandra Hutchens as sheriff. Santa Ana Police Chief Paul Walters had been in the running for the post. An Orange County blogger, Matt Cunningham, said Bustamante told him: "I kept telling the chief: 'Maybe we should get you some implants. Or a water bra.'" The Los Angeles Times also reported that one of its reporters clearly overheard the remark during the board meeting. The state Senate had not yet confirmed Bustamante to the employment and housing commission. The governor's office sent the Senate Rules Committee a letter Monday saying it was withdrawing Bustamante's nomination.

[b]March 5, 2010:[/b] Cabaldon, who is gay, remarked on Sen. Roy Ashburn after Ashburn was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving March 3, 2010. Ashburn had after reportedly visited a gay nightclub early that morning. Cabaldon said he did not see Ashburn that night but had frequently seen him at Sacramento-area gay clubs in recent months. Ashburn is a conservative Senator from Bakersfield who has consistently opposed pro-gay legislation. "I don't think it's a scandal for an elected official to be gay," Cabaldon said. "But if you're going to vote against every piece of hate-crimes legislation [to protect gays], that's hypocritical."

Sac Bee: http://www.sacbee.com/static/weblogs/capitolalertlatest/019421.html?mi_rss=Capitol%20Alert


Assemblywoman Garcia has worked for two Southern California cities, where she led teams to address the escalating crime wave targeting abandoned buildings and substandard housing.
Assemblywoman Garcia drew upon this experience when opening her consulting business, and contracted with the City of Coachella to serve as the city's first Director of Housing and Neighborhood Services. In that capacity, she partnered with the Police Department to secure over $1.5 million in grants to assist low-income homeowners with repairs, clean up blighted areas, and establish neighborhood crime prevention programs.

Immediately prior to being elected to the Assembly, Bonnie Garcia worked as a senior legislative aide for Senator Jim Battin, overseeing all local government and public safety programs and implementing educational outreach within the Hispanic community.
Assemblywoman Garcia is active in her community and currently serves on the boards of several organizations, including the Coachella Valley Health Partnership, the DCA Riverside County Energy Task Force Committee, the FISH food bank, and the Inland Empire Community Development Corporation (an agency that provides small business loans to women and minorities). She was instrumental in forming the Cathedral City anti-gang unit, GRASP, and is actively involved in local schools, sports and neighborhood organizations. She also serves as a frequent guest speaker for schools, and organizations committed to assisting people with overcoming obstacles in their lives.
For her exemplary community service, she earned recognition as the 1991 City of Coachella Employee of the Year, the 1994 City of San Bernardino Woman of Achievement Award, and the 80th Assembly District Woman of the Year for 1997.
One of five children, Bonnie Garcia was born on the lower east side of New York to teen parents who later divorced. Early in life, however, she called upon her indomitable spirit to overcome crushing poverty and a crime-ridden neighborhood. She served as student government President, was active in her church and served as a role model to her peers. After many years of taking night and weekend classes, she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Workforce Education and Development from Southern Illinois University.
Assemblywoman Garcia married U.S. Marine Javier Garcia, and in 1985, the two settled in Southern California where Javier was stationed at Twenty-Nine Palms Marine Base. He later began a career in law enforcement as an officer with the Indio Police Department, and now serves as an investigator with the District Attorney's office in Riverside County. They reside in Cathedral City with their two children -- Melissa, age 17 and Javier, age 14.

Dave left the county office in 1979, after serving two years as Chief Appraiser, to accept a position in the private sector. In 1981, he and his partner opened their own firm, Cogdill & Giomi.

Cogdill was first elected to public office in 1975 as a member of the Board of Directors of the Bridgeport Fire Protection District in Mono County.

In 1991, Cogdill was elected to the Modesto City Council, earning nearly 60% of the vote in defeating an incumbent. After a successful term, Dave chose not to seek re-election and instead focus on bringing his son into the family business. However, after the unexpected passing of a council member, Cogdill was re-appointed to the council in July of 1996 to serve out the remaining 17-month term.

Cogdill was born December 31, 1950 in Long Beach, Calif. He and his wife, Stephanie, have two children, David, Jr. and Meghan. They are the proud grandparents of Connor and Kathleen.

Jelincic, a rank-and-file investment officer for the California Public Employees Retirement System since 1986, was elected in November of 2003, on a reform ticket promising to give the four association affiliates (SEIU Local 1000, California State University Employees Union, Association of California State Supervisors, and CSEA Retirees, Inc.) greater control over their individual programs while working together as CSEA on issues of common interest. He was reelected in October 2005 by a wide margin: 486-296.[1]

Jelincic was appointed in 2004 by California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to the California Performance Review (CPR) Commission. As a commissioner, Jelincic conducted public hearings up and down California on proposals to reform state government, put together by the "CPR Team". He was the only representative of working Californians on the commission.

[b]October 12, 2009:[/b] Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed Ammiano's AB 1176 concerned with financing of infrastructure projects at San Francisco's ports. On Oct. 27th the editor of the San Francisco Bay Guardian wrote about his observation of a hidden expletive phrase in the governor's veto message: "F#@k You." The governor's staffers dismissed the acrostic as coincidental but previous animosity between Ammiano and the governor (see Oct. 7, 2009, below) suggested a possibility that it was purposeful. The story was quickly circulated in national news outlets.

[b]May 27, 2009:[/b] The U.S. Dept. of Justice dropped their corruption investigation against Perata. http://www.sacbee.com/capitolandcalifornia/story/1895974.html

[b]March 30, 2009:[/b] Perata said he will run to become mayor of Oakland. http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/blogs/nov05election/detail?blogid=14&entry_id=37748

[b]May 7, 2008:[/b] Perata called an end to his campaign to recall Sen. Jeff Denham (R-SD12) "in the spirit of putting politics aside to solve problems." Most agree that Perata actually ended the effort because polling numbers indicated the effort was failing badly. The recall was defeated by more than 75%. Perata's statement: http://www.sacbee.com/static/weblogs/capitolalertlatest/012414.html

[b]February 5, 2008:[/b] Prop 93, the initiative to alter term limits (http://www.totalcapitol.com/?contest=653), was defeated by the voters forcing then end of Perata's time in the Senate. Days later Perata handpicked his successor as Senate Pro Tem in Darrell Steinberg (D-SD6). The transition is expected in August 2008 when Perata's term ends.

[b]Summer 2007:[/b] Perata started a recall campaign against Sen. Jeff Denham (R-SD12) after the state budget impasse in which Denham refused to break from the Republican caucus and cast the final vote necessary to pass the budget. The effort has cost as much as $275,000. Perata's spokesman Paul Hefner is also the spokesman for the recall campaign.

[b]August 2007:[/b] Perata removed Denham as vice chair of the governmental organization committee and as chair of the agriculture committee after the state budget impasse in which Denham refused to break from the Republican caucus and cast the final vote necessary to pass the budget. Perata returned Denham to a seat on the committee in January 2008, though not as vice-chair.

[b]February 5, 2008:[/b] Prop 93, the initiative to alter term limits (http://www.totalcapitol.com/?contest=653), was defeated by the voters forcing then end of Perata's time in the Senate.
