Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on November 5, 2012 by OC Talk Radio

For those of you in South OC, please vote for OC Talk Radio’s CHUCK GIBSON in tomorrow’s Santa Margarita Water District Race. As a former legislative analyst for the City of LA and the Port of LB, Chuck is well versed in complicated public-private infrastructure issues. And he covered the controversial Cadiz Water Project for us as field producer as well, updating our issues on all the pros and cons of that proposed water project.

Our own Chuck Gibson gains endorsements for Santa Margarita Water District race

Our own Chuck Gibson, volunteer producer for OC Talk Radio’s “Open Mic” program, has picked up another endorsement in his campaign to serve on the Santa Margarita Water District Board.

Chuck has not only won the endorsement of the outgoing President of the Board, Bill Lawson, but also was endorsed today by The South Orange County Regional Chamber of Commerce Political Action Committee. Gibson is among a select few candidates the group has endorsed that exemplify its ideals, which include:

  • Greater investment in our region’s Infrastructure; this includes strong advocacy for a comprehensive solution to our region’s significant transportation challenges and ensuring a reliable supply of energy and water resources;
  • Appropriate supply of quality, reasonably-priced Housing for our region’s workforce; and
  • Enhanced Workforce Development opportunities to prepare the next generation of skilled workers for the challenges of tomorrow.

The Chamber and its Economic Coalition will launch and fund specific initiatives that support one or more of the above advocacy goals. It will educate and mobilize not just business leaders, owners and their employees but a broad spectrum of community leaders who understand the importance of these issues to future economic and job growth.

We heartily join this list of community leaders in endosing Chuck and urge all our South Orange County listeners to vote for him in the upcoming election.  To learn more about his expertise on the subject, listen to our past episodes of OPEN MIC where he investigates and reports on the controversial Cadiz Water project.

OC Talk Radio Attends Rick Perry Rally

Posted in Media Coverage, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on September 9, 2011 by OC Talk Radio

Fresh from his first appearance in a Republican debate, Gov. Rick Perry, the current front runner for the GOP nomination, held his first rally here in Orange County on Thursday, September 8th at Rogers Gardens in Corona Del Mar.  Hosted by the OC Republican Party and longtime Republican activist Gavin Herbert (the owner of Rogers Gardens), what was originally envisioned as a quick “meet and greet” for the candidate following his appearance the night before at the MSNBC/Politico debate in Simi Valley (at the Reagan Library), quickly became a raucus, standing room only event (and the toughest ticket in town to get).

National media swarmed to cover the candidate’s first “post debate” appearance and OC Talk Radio was proud to be among them in the coveted, cordoned off, media corner.  Our field producer Chuck Gibson (co-host of our popular OPEN MIC show every Wednesday from 2-3pm PST with Jim Schmitt, Editor and Publisher of the Ladera Times) was privilaged to represent us and to capture some audio interviews (which he’ll share on next week’s program). “It was a highly charged event,” reports Chuck from inside the tightly controlled press area, “full of lots of people and lots of enthusiasm.”

Orange County Republican Party Chairman Scott Baugh appeared on stage in support of Perry – a shift from Baugh’s leading role in support of Mitt Romney in 2008. Additional opening remarks included Orange County Supervisor Shawn Nelson (another former OC Talk Radio guest) with commentary strongly supporting Governor Perry. To read more about the event, pick up a copy of next month’s Octorber issue of THE LADERA TIMES or tune into OC Talk Radio next week from 2-3pm as Chuck and Jim discuss the impact of this event and his initial rections to Gov. Ric Perry’s first appearance before the OC Republican faithful.
