My take on the upcoming Torrance election

I endorse Pat Furey for Mayor of Torrance

On June 3, 2014 the California Primary Election will be held to vote on statewide measures as well as local offices. For Torrance, this is a pretty important election as our current mayor, Frank Scotto will term out and there are four city council seats that are up for grabs. We have three candidates running for Mayor and sixteen candidates vying for the four city council seats.

As far as mayoral candidates are concerned, we are pretty lucky. Over the past few years I have had the opportunity to observe, interact and talk to all three candidates and I can honestly say that no matter which of them wins, I think Torrance will be okay. I like Tom Brewer, and he seems like a really nice guy; Bill Sutherland is a man of principle and he has no problem saying what he thinks. While I may not always agree, one must respect his honesty. Bill has been nothing but helpful when approached about a few Torrance oddities and that is also appreciated. I have previously written about my relationship with Pat Furey and as he has always been an advocate for children, both in his personal and professional life as well as having close to 25 years of civic involvement, I must endorse Pat for Mayor. A friend mentioned recently that Furey was the only Democrat of the three candidates so that is why she was voting for him. The Office of Mayor is not supposed to be a Republican versus Democrat ideology and the reality is, I do not know what political party Brewer and Sutherland belong to, but if party allegiance is important to how you cast your vote, I am relatively confident Furey is not a Republican.

Pat Furey for Mayor fundraiser at Outback Steakhouse

Tuesday afternoon, August 20, the South Bay and Los Angeles area business owners and professionals held a fundraiser for Torrance Councilman Pat Furey’s campaign for Mayor of the City of Torrance at the Outback Steakhouse, who donated the food. Those that attended were treated to some very good food to go along with the networking and obligatory speeches. In addition to the business owners and professionals in attendance, Pat Furey was introduced by Congresswoman Maxine Waters, who was accompanied by her husband, Ambassador Sidney Williams. There were also several officials from surrounding cities like Lomita, Hawthorne and Lawndale in attendance to show their support for Councilman Furey’s election bid.

Councilman Furey spoke for a while, telling his history and his visions for the future of Torrance. He also talked about the lack of foster families in Torrance and a new push that is going on to change that. I have known the councilman for more than 20 years and nothing has changed; he has always been involved helping kids and helping the city overall. That is why I am putting my support behind his campaign. He explained that is costs between $75,000 – $100,000 to run a campaign of this size, if you would like to help in any way, please visit the Pat Furey for Mayor website, http://www.patfureyformayor.com/.
