Bolsa Chica choice is black-&-white, Orton tells attendees to HB council meeting      (HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA.) -- State Assembly candidate Bill Orton (D-Seal Beach) shined a different kind of light onto the subject of politics Monday, but his point to a crowd attending the HB city council meeting couldn't have been more black-and-white.
As a super 8mm projector flickered a two-minute monochrome home movie of a family trip to the Bolsa Chica onto the screen behind him, Orton called upon his election opponent to stop listening to big party bosses and to instead vote for the stalled state budget, which includes tens of millions of dollars to save the endangered upper mesa of the Bolsa Chica wetlands.
"Two years ago, Tom Harman told voters that he was an independent who wouldn't listen to the big party bosses in Sacramento," Orton told an audience of roughly 100 at the regularly scheduled and televised meeting of the Huntington Beach City Council. "Tom Harman has the greatest opportunity in a generation to save the Bolsa Chica."
Orton, who will hold a noontime rally this Friday in front of Harman's HB district office, brought his ancient Bell-and-Howell movie projector and unreeled the two minute black-and-white film shot at the Bolsa Chica in the mid-90s.
"Life comes at you in technicolor, but our choices are often black-and-white," said Orton, who gave viewers the phone number to his opponent's district office, and urged that people call and tell Harman to pass the budget and save the Bolsa Chica. "This is larger than one campaign, one candidate, one election."
Orton's "Save the Bolsa Chica Rally" takes place at noon on FRIDAY, AUGUST 9TH outside of Tom Harman's district office, which is at the intersection of Beach and Warner, in Huntington Beach.
From the 405 freeway, exit at Beach and head two miles south. The 17011 Beach Boulevard address is site of the tallest building in the area, and is easily the most visible building around.

To tell Assemblyman Tom Harman to VOTE YES on the state budget and SAVE THE BOLSA CHICA, call (916) 319-2067 or (714) 843-4966.
