Baca sends state-paid mailers to would-be council district
|Assemblyman Joe Baca lost a June primary for the state Senate, but he's still involved in Inland Empire politics. He's running for city council in Rialto.|
And, as Jim MIller reports:
In the early months of his quest for a seat on the Rialto City Council, Assemblyman Joe Baca Jr. sent tens of thousands of pieces of taxpayer-funded mass mailings to Rialto households, according to Assembly Rules Committee records.
From early July until a September pre-election cutoff, the Rialto Democrat's office sent more than 93,000 mailers to households in his 62nd Assembly District.
Of that, at least 71,000 pieces went to Rialto ZIP codes -- an average of two to almost four pieces of mail per household.
