Councilman Did the Right Thing

May 03, 1987

Let me be the first to express my support and gratitude to Councilman John F. Kelly of Tustin for demanding a full explanation as to how disgusting porno film could have been slipped into the recent Orange County League of Cities dinner. Councilman Kelly, at his young age of 25, has shown far more maturity and sense than his elders who were present and attempted to dismiss this issue with such frivolity.

The comments made by the mayor of Cypress were disgraceful. To criticize Kelly for his concern is an absolute outrage to all of the decent people of Orange County. To have made light of the situation, as our newly appointed Supervisor Gaddi Vasquez did, was also disheartening. Surely for the "average Joe" to step up to a microphone after such a shocking and indecent incident, it would be most difficult to find the correct instant response. But in this case, we have the son of a minister who the governor thought capable of handling the job of supervisor, reacting with a joke. Heaven help our future, with lawmakers such as these.

Hats off to Councilman Kelly. He deserves tremendous credit for questioning this incident and the careless follow-up.
