AD-38: Scott Wilk Wins California Assembly Seat

Share

California Assembly District 38 election results

Got Wilk?

In the California Assemby that is..

Apparently so and congrats to my friend Scott Wilk!

These are unofficial returns which must be certified by Ventura and Los Angeles Counties by December 7th.

Here is a news story.

College of the Canyons Trustee Scott Wilk is headed for the state Assembly, capturing 56.9 percent of the votes in his race against Edward Headington in California’s 38th District.

Among his early priorities, Wilk said he wanted to find like-minded politicians on either side of the aisle who are willing to help him attack some of what he considers misspent funds in Sacramento.

“California has 12 percent of the nation’s population but 32 percent of the nation’s welfare caseload,” Wilk said.

With last night’s unofficial returns, it looks like California Democrats have captured a 2/3′rds super majority of Assembly members. Same in the California State Senate.

Good luck, Scott!

Your work is certainly cut out for you as one of the few Republicans remaining in office.

AD-38: The Signal Scolds Endorsee Edward Headington

Share

Screencap of The Signal.ComThe Signal (Santa Clarita Newspaper and Website)

I wonder if The Signal regrets endorsing Democrat Edward Headington? It sure sounds like it in today’s opinion piece.

Edward Headington, candidate for the 38th Assembly District, has done something in the last few days of the 2012 campaign that is extremely misleading — and we feel he should be called out on it.

Headington sent out a mailer in the last few days attacking his opponent Scott Wilk. It’s one of those schlocky last-minute attack mailers with garish design, screaming headlines — you know those things that candidates do at the last minute to scare voters.

This particular mailer uses The Signal’s logo and gives the appearance that our company produced and distributed the mailer. This is not the case. We had nothing to do with the mailer. The Signal first learned of it Friday when a reader brought it to our offices to show us. We don’t know where Headington got The Signal’s logo.

When confronted about it, Headington apologized to us, saying that he used the logo to make sure that quotes on the flyer from a recent Signal editorial endorsing him were properly sourced (The Signal formally endorsed Headington in October.) He said he didn’t know it was wrong to use the logo. Headington owns a public affairs firm, so we find that answer unacceptable.

By this action, Headington sinks to the level of just your run-of-the-mill attack candidate trying to manipulate the electorate at the last minute. We’re disappointed in him as we are any candidate who stoops to such a level.

We feel that Headington has wronged The Signal, his opponent Scott Wilk and the voters at large by such a misrepresentation.

To set the things straight The Signal should repudiate Headington and endorse Scott Wilk, his Republican opponent.

This won’t happen because The Signal would have to admit they misread the Democrats character in the first place – which they did.

By the way, vote for Scott Wilk on Tuesday!

AD-38: Anti-Scott Wilk Website Makes Its Appearance

Anti- Scott Wilk Website Screen Cap

An anti-Scott Wilk website

An anonymous anti-Scott Wilk website has appeared.

A vicious and raunchy (probably not work safe) anti Scott Wilk website has gone live today, and it’s going to cause quite the stir.

The site, ScottWilk2012.com is a virtual clone of Scott Wilk’s real campaign website, Wilk2012.com. The layout, colors, design, and links are nearly identical.

The content, however, is not. The unknown author accuses Wilk of being a career politician, a “political opportunist” and a myriad of other charges. The author has also modified pictures of Wilk on the site. There is a lot of anti-Wilk content here to explore.

This site, devoid of any mention of Wilk’s Democratic opponent, Edward Headington, is just a tit for tat for the anonymous Really Patricia? website that was so devastating to his June Primary election Republican opponent, Patrica McKeon.

This looks to me like an amateur Republican type hit site, thrown together quickly, to lightly impugn, but harm Wilk later when he wins election in November and then decides to run for Rep. Buck McKeon’s seat, when Buck retires.

The content is quite humorous, especially if you know the back story and Wilk’s political history, but will have no affect on his campaign in this safe Republican California Assembly District. It is just too inside baseball and up on the web way too late in the campaign to have any measurable effect.

Except…. candidates will know that they must have a fast responding web presence to combat these type of efforts to slime them.

AD-38: Scott Wilk Hosting Republican Assembly Leader Connie Conway at Fundraising Event

Scott Wilk fundraising invitation for September 23

I received the press release for this Scott Wilk fundraising event the other day.

Make no mistake that Wilk wants to be associated with the GOP in this Republican majority registered California Assembly District.

If the GOP supports him (which they do) and the Wilk campaign turns out the vote, Scott wins.

Readers, Scott Wilk is a good solid conservative Republican. If you can spare a few bucks, head over to his website and donate what you can – or show up to this event!

Scott Wilk lays out the reasons for his California Assembly candidacy.

I have known Scott for many years and he will carry strong conservative principles to Sacramento. While I do not live in the 38th Assembly District, Scott WILL represent Simi Valley and the Santa Clarita Valley well.
