Today the Orange County Register endorsed Bruce Whitaker for Fullerton City Council.
From the editorial: “While there are several good options among the 12 candidates seeking three City Council seats in Fullerton, Councilman Bruce Whitaker is undoubtedly our favorite choice due to his steadfast defense of free markets and property rights and his important role as fiscal watchdog for the city.
“Whitaker strongly disagrees with local government trying to direct the economy through subsidies or other top-down approaches. Instead of getting in the way of market forces, he told us, the government should simply “put out the welcome mat.”
“He would like to consider contracting out more city services to save money, although, as he stated, he believes in privatizing, not “piratizing” through crony capitalism. He criticized the council majority for not opening up the trash collection contract to competition, for example.”
A detailed bio for Bruce is available on the city’s website.
