So Fulleron has a new Democratic city council member in Fred Jung. Great! Right?
Not so much.
The Fullerton City Council is supposed to rotate the mayor’s seat which means this ceremonial position would fall to Ahmad Zahra. But instead, newly Democratically-elected Fred Jung nominated a Republican.
Here offered this statement:
Long before I was a Democrat or Republican, I was a Korean-American. Long before I was a conservative or progressive, I was a Fullertonian. And I expect to govern that way. The pandemic is devastating lives and livelihoods in our community. As you are well aware, there are serious issues that require action in Fullerton. I hope I can build a broad coalition to respond and move our city forward on behalf of all residents. I trust that explains my nomination accordingly.
Which makes Fred a shitty Democrat. He objected to me using a profanity in our email chat. He’s a crappy Democrat who sold out those who voted for him in Fullerton. He’s a failure before his term has even begun.
At this point, I have zero confidence Fred Jung will make votes Democrats care about. And he lacks the sort of tough skin electeds possess. Fred is a jerk Democrats should not come to his aid as he won’t come to theirs.
