County Controller Endorses Paul Jacobs For Temecula Council

Paul Angulo this weekend issued a news release announcing his endorsement of Paul Jacobs for the Temecula City Council.

News Release from the office of Paul Angulo, Riverside County auditor and controller.

 "As Riverside County Auditor-Controller, I am committed to responsible leadership and attacking waste, fraud and abuse of taxpayer resources.

"In public leadership, it is essential to lead with the utmost of integrity. Additionally, one must have the courage of conviction to do what is right for the community," Angulo wrote.

"Specifically, Mr. Jacobs’ strong defense of Temecula's wine country, community health and senior citizens demonstrates his adherence to these essential values. I am, therefore, delighted to endorse Paul Jacobs’ candidacy for Temecula City Council. "

Jacobs told Patch in an email that he was pleased with the endorsement.

"I am profoundly honored to receive the endorsement of Paul Angulo," Jacobs wrote.

"I see the office of the county Auditor-Controller as being apolitical and one of integrity. 

"As a citizen running for City Council for the first time without the political connections incumbents enjoy, it is remarkable that I get such an endorsement," he wrote.

Jacobs is running for one of two City Council seats that will be open because the terms of two incumbents -- Mike Naggar and Chuck Washington -- are set to expire this year.

Jacobs has been a vocal opponent of the proposed which was denied by the Riverside County Board of Supervisors but may still rear its modified head with a fast-tracking amendment pushed through by the board.

The city has asked the courts to step into the fray and declare the amendment void.

Are you a registered Democrat or Republican?

This is how much people like Paul Jacobs...no comments! HA! Great choice Mr Controller.
Randy Marsh October 15, 2012 at 05:44 PM
He is a total Liberal. We are kicking one out of the White House, we DON'T need one in charge of the city.
Jim October 15, 2012 at 05:49 PM
Starting to realize he is a liberal and a Sufi Muslim. Sorry, not interested in putting more Islam in our public offices until these guys stop killing innocent people over Korans and pictures of their holy one Muhammad. Its not Islam that scares me. Its the out of control men who follow it.
The Republican October 15, 2012 at 06:16 PM
Yeah all we need is another talking idiot Libtard to replace the present Libtards in office.
Paul Jacobs October 15, 2012 at 06:30 PM
The Republican October 15, 2012 at 06:39 PM
No? Give me a break! Paul Jacobs is a slobbbering Liberal Democrap.
Lash LaRue October 15, 2012 at 07:55 PM
Paul are you a registered voter? if so what party are you registered as voter in?
SPB October 15, 2012 at 07:59 PM
Because the only stories people comment on are about immigration, the quarry and for some strange reason; bike riders. Paul Jacobs gets my vote. The guy is passionate, reasonable and most importantly, not looking for a career.
SPB October 15, 2012 at 08:00 PM
That sort of thing shouldn't matter in a local election. The only people who care about parties here are those who need an organization to tell them who to vote for.

I agree, integrity and the willingness to fight for what is right is absolutely what Temecula needs to have....lucky for us we already have had it for over a decade. To know the integrity and dedication that the council has for this town, especially Mike Naggar, you need only to look at the amazing city that the council has helped create. A 3million dollar surplus, thousands of jobs created and a clean safe place to live. This is a rarity in today's economy! I believe that the strength of the town has been solidified through experience. "If it ain't broke don't fix it" I'm voting for track record and experience.

Wow, how absolutely amazing. A candidate gets an endorsement from a non-partisan elected official of stature and integrity, and all most of you can do is throw mud, stones, sand and other a-sordid objects of cruelty and ignorance. They used to say you can't be all things to all people, but y'all have just proven that wrong. Hey Paul, did you realize you are 1)"a talking idiot libtard", 2)a "liberal" (I seem to recall Jesus being a liberal but I guess His teachings aren't compatible with the neo-con definition of "liberal"), 3)a Sufi Muslim, 4)a "slobbering Liberal Democrap", 5)a "total liberal" (these five from just the few entries above) and then from other blog entries you are 6)a teabagger, 7) etc. Don't have the time or inclination to look up all the other wonderful tags folks have managed to affix to you. But you are definitely a man of the people as they have made sure you are indeed all things to all people. Oh, did I forget to mention you are also "...passionate, reasonable and most importantly, not looking for a career..."? That you have demonstrated a "strong defense of Temecula's wine country, community health and senior citizens..." and that you "...lead with the utmost of integrity." And that lastly you "have the courage of conviction to do what is right for the community." This is a non-partisan race; Paul Jacobs' party affiliation or lack thereof should be of absolutely NO concern, unless you NEED your party to tell you who to vote for.

Here is Mr. Naggar's "leadership" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOJMu08AhDM&feature=plcp -- is that the level of maturity we want representing Temecula? His attack dogs are trying to smear me. Integrity? Ha!
The Republican October 16, 2012 at 06:51 PM
I love the way people act like party afiliation does not matter in a local race. HELL YES IT DOES!!! It may not be a required field on the ballot but it certainly plays a huge part in a votes mind. It tells the vote in general what the candidates mind set is. So if you want a Libtard that votes for Libtard anti economic policies and wouldn't know how to stop a bad government program vote for Paul Jacobs. Paul Jacobs along with Mike Naggar and Chuck Washington are all either radical Liberals or closeted Liberals. Do not vote for them.
Tom Courbat October 17, 2012 at 11:12 AM
Name-calling is what those with nothing of substance to say resort to. Lumping Mr. Jacobs in with the two incumbents makes it very clear who "The Republican" is supporting.
sam October 20, 2012 at 04:36 PM
YUP, he is one of the boys, they are trying to cover their as..... All the more reason to clean out the incubents and anyone they support. Our communities deserve better. People that will support and protect our communities, be it the corrupt cameras in Murrieta or the sly self enhancing money making schemes in Temecula, for example the destruction of Wine Country, the health destroying Quarry and the threat of the Islamic invasion. WE MUST FIGHT TO PROTECT OUR COMMUNITIES FROM ALL THEIR THREATS!

Oh common Paul, really?. Sure I support Mike so my opinion of this video may seem bias, but he doesn't look "agitated" he's concentrating on city business. He's at a meeting taking sincere concern over city issues, not irritated? He made a funny face while his own fellow council member is talking about an issue he agrees with, so what is it exactly that you think he's making a face at? If all you have in your corner is a video of Mike making a funny face, then I'm concerned about YOUR maturity! As far as the police station goes, have you looked into the cost of having our own police station? Do you fully understand what all is involved in having a locally ran police station? It's incredibly expensive and it's absolutely not needed! Sure, if the Sheriff was doing an inadequate job then we as residence could raise concerns and look for a solution. But this is not not case, the police in our town are doing a fabulous job! So please, be specific as to how it would be an overall (as far as economics and safety) benefit to our city...especially considering our already impressive crime rate. They will be utilizing the old city hall to allow new business owners to have an office space at low cost, conducting business in the city, thus generating revenue. Sounds like good money management to me!
