The "Smoking Gun" Behind Assembly Candidate Steve Glazer's Tobacco Ties
Consultant to Tobacco Industry-Funded Political Action Committee While His City Received "F" Grade from American Lung Association
It’s no secret that Steve Glazer was the $15,000 per month paid political consultant last cycle to JobsPAC, which is heavily supported by more than $330,000 in contributions from the tobacco industry giant Philip Morris.
But we’ve also learned that the Orinda, the community where Glazer presided as Mayor and serves on the City Council, recently received an flunking grade of “F” from the American Lung Association in its annual report on cities and counties http://lamorinda.patch.com/groups/politics-and-elections/p/lamorinda-gets-a-c-and-two-fs-in-annual-tobacco-report
In contrast, under Democratic candidate Tim Sbranti's leadership, the City of Dublin raised its grade on tobacco and smoking policies from the American Lung Association all the way to an “A.”
Glazer, who, according to the Sacramento Bee, is the state’s top recipient of corporate Independent Expenditure dollars http://www.sacbee.com/2014/05/07/6386787/capitol-alert-california-races.html, may try to run from his ties to the tobacco industry, but he can’t hide behind this cloud of smoke. His record speaks for itself.
