Howard F. Ahmanson/Fieldstead & Company: ‘REJECT KEN TALMAGE FOR MAYOR!’

ABSTRACT: In a four-page brochure sent via USPS entitled “REJECT KEN TALMAGE FOR MAYOR!,” paid for by Howard F. Ahmanson/Fieldstead & Company, an “advertisement” “not authorized or paid for by a candidate for this office or a committee controlled by a candidate for this office,” Ahmanson highlights “Some of the low lights of his record,” including “Wasted over $1 Million of taxpayer funds on wrongful termination lawsuits and frivolous investigations,” “Refusal to disclose public documents,” “Harming local businesses by placement of unpopular parking meters” and “Leading efforts to ban beach fires.” Specifically, in “Making the Case Against Ken Talmage for Mayor,” he denotes “COSTLY I.T. INVESTIGATION,” “MISSING REPORTS,” “REFUSAL TO PROVIDE REQUESTED DOCUMENTS,’ WRONGFULLY TERMINATED EMPLOYEES,” ‘TAXPAYER MONEY WASTED” and “CARMEL PARKING METERS.” And he highlights “THE PEOPLE LEADING THE CARMEL BEACH FIRE BAN,” including Mayor Jason Burnett, Forest & Beach Commissioner Kathy Bang and Director Richard Stedman, Monterey Bay Air Pollution Control Board, and directs viewers to “Watch the November 3, 2015 Council Meeting” @ 5. AB 1051 First reading of an ordinance of the City Council of the City of Carmel-by-the-Sea declaring beach fires a public nuisance. (p. 19).
NOTE:Howard Ahmanson is a long-time advocate for public access to California’s inexpensive and traditional past time of wood burning beach fires.”

Can you think of another O.C. tradition that brings together so many disparate people?
