Campaign contributions seem to be a trend among bloggers these days. Ill just keep that trend going…
Sifting through finance documents for La Puente officials Monday, I came upon several pricy in-kind contributions from Dr. Ed Hernandez, who represents the 57th Assembly District.
Just a little background on Hernandez first: he was a La Puente optometrist before deciding to run for office in 2006. He beat out then La Puente mayor Renee Chavez, who was hoping to take over her husband Ed Chavez seat. Chavez was being termed out.
Despite being a representative for several districts, including Azusa, Baldwin Park, Covina, Industry, Irwindale, and West Covina, it looks Hernandez hasnt forgotten about little ole La Puente.
Heres a list of his contributions:
