Corruption at City Hall?
How do you feel about our elected City Council members and city council candidates receiving a majority of donations from the development community while NOT recusing themselves from voting on those development projects?
SIX of NINE contributions are from the Strader family for Melissa Fox’s campaign (Patrick Strader is the lobbyist for FivePoint/Starpointe Ventures). Seven contributions from the Strader family and Melissa Fox’s firm to Lauren Johnson-Norris.
Isn’t there a concern over undue influence? Is there an issue with the Political Reform Act? Questions to ponder for sure!
With our upcoming election in November, let’s make sure we know which of our candidates are beholden to corporate PACs, developers, and lobbyists verses Irvine residents!
Here are Melissa Fox’s forms:
How would you vote on council candidates who take money from developers? Here are Lauren Johnson-Norris’ forms:
Christina Shea sends Irvine citizens’ petition directly to developers before the petition was out of City Attorney review! Does she really represent the citizen or just her developer funders?

I’m thankful we have options other than those who have accepted developer money. The candidates I am aware of that have stated they will NOT accept corporate PAC, developer, lobbyist money are: Farrah Khan, Kev Abazajian, John Park, and Lee Sun. Their commitment to Irvine residents by refusing such contributions is admirable.

Our Team of Three NO On B – Frank McGill and I, Jaci Woods, (running for Irvine City Council 2018) and Ed Pope, running for Mayor are emphatic: we will accept no funds from corporate PAC, developer, lobbyists. We have no hidden agenda than to work for the residents of the City of Irvine in the most transparent and honest way – we have no plans to run for higher office on the backs of Irvine – we simply want to restore Irvine to slow growth, get the Veterans Cemetery built in the originally approved site and keep that land out of the hands of FivePoint plus mitigate horrible traffic as first orders of business, among other items.

Reading the 460 forms clearly Fox’s law firm is funneling $$$ from the Five Points Oligarchs . Worst case totally illegal : best case unethical & and a conflict of interest : especially since they are including their law firm…
