This letter is in reference to a story printed about Assemblyman Ken Maddox on Saturday, titled "Campbell accuses Maddox of 'secret deal' with Democrats." I have known Maddox since his first campaign for the California State Assembly in 1998. I know Maddox as a good, conservative Republican who is passionate about serving his constituents. Any Republican who knows Maddox would strongly agree. Having been active in Orange County Republican politics for many years, Maddox has always been supportive of Republican candidates and causes.

Paul Clinton Three candidates vying for state offices banked more than $300,000 in contributions for the first half of the year. Two of them, Assembly hopefuls, out-raised a state Senate candidate, they reported. Candidates for state office, under the state's campaign finance laws, must disclose any contribution of $50,000 or more electronically. Contributions of $1,000 or more must be filed manually. All dollars received or spent in the six months ending June 30 needed to be reported by July 31. Assemblyman John Campbell, who is squaring off against Assemblyman Ken Maddox in the state Senate's 35th District, set the high-water mark for the first six months of the year by raising $504,741, he reported in a filing with the Orange County Registrar's office.

Ken Maddox As we mark the 228th birthday of our nation, we must take the time to celebrate our Declaration of Independence. With great determination, our Founding Fathers charted a revolutionary course, creating a nation with the freedom to assemble, worship and speak freely. Thousands more have given their lives in service to our country to protect these freedoms. A simple principle sets our nation apart from others around the world: a government that is of the people, by the people and for the people.

Paul Clinton The two Republicans seeking re-election to the State Assembly from Newport-Mesa have far out-raised and outspent their Democratic challengers, finance reports show. Ken Maddox, the sitting Assemblyman who would represent Costa Mesa if re-elected, has raised $127,370 so far, according to a report filed Friday. Maddox currently represents the 68th District, which was redrawn in 2001 to include Costa Mesa. Colleague John Campbell, who represents Newport Beach in the Assembly, has raised considerably more.

Paul Clinton Al Snook's run for the state Assembly seat that will represent Costa Mesa will be his final one. Handily behind his Republican opponent in the money race and largely unknown outside his hometown Garden Grove, the Democrat faces long odds in unseating Ken Maddox for the 68th Assembly District seat. "This will be my last chance," Snook said. "That's the way I'm looking at it." Snook, an insurance salesman who fought in the Korean War, said he ran as a favor to Democrat Party leaders looking for a viable candidate to run against Maddox.

Paul Clinton NEWPORT-MESA -- Newport Beach's assemblyman raised more money last year than any other Orange County member of the state Legislature. Assemblyman John Campbell, who represents Newport Beach, collected $243,798 during 2001, about $16,000 more than either Assemblyman Lou Correa (D-Santa Ana) or Assemblywoman Lynn Daucher (R-Brea). Campbell, who took over as the vice chairman of the Assembly's budget committee after only his first year in office, has quickly ascended to a leadership role in the Assembly.

Paul Clinton After three months as the city's assemblyman, Ken Maddox is moving to town. Maddox, who was elected as the city's new representative in the Assembly in November, announced the move of his district office from Garden Grove to Costa Mesa on Monday. The new office is closer to the center of the new 68th District, which was realigned by state lawmakers a year ago based on 2000 Census data. Maddox is moving in today. "It makes us much more accessible to voters in the district as newly drawn," Maddox said about the move.

John Campbell, the 70th District Assemblyman, won a three-way GOP race for the 35th District Senate seat with 60.5% of the vote Tuesday. Maddox, the 68th District Assemblyman, took second with 30% of the vote, and Dana Point Mayor Joe Snyder netted 9.5% at the ballot box. "I got hit by a freight train," Maddox said.

Paul Clinton NEWPORT-MESA -- Assemblyman John Campbell (R-Irvine) has begun writing his farewell speech to Costa Mesa. Under the latest proposal to redraw district boundaries across the state in both the Assembly and Senate, Campbell would lose the city. It would be replaced by Lake Forest. The proposal, announced Wednesday, isn't final. But those involved in the process said only minor adjustments to the map are expected before the Legislature considers it. The new map must be finalized by Sept.

In my giddiness over a possible Republican throw-down for Rep. Chris Cox's seat, were he to get an even more stable appointment elsewhere, I glossed over the fact that state Sen. Ross Johnson is facing term limits. So let the race begin. And it did last week, with both of Newport-Mesa's Assemblymen, John Campbell and Ken Maddox, announcing their intentions and taking ample opportunity to deliver some early political punches to each other. You could feel the delight among the writers as they filed their reports.

Paul Clinton It's not a question of whether he will win re-election. For Assemblyman Ken Maddox, it's only a question of when. Maddox, who would represent Costa Mesa if he wins on Nov. 5, said he has already laid down plans to relocate his district office to the city. "I'm anxious to get this election out of the way, so I can move my district office [to Costa Mesa]," Maddox said jovially. "There's a lot going on there." The assemblyman, known for his sense of humor and easy-going manner, is running for the 68th Assembly District, which was realigned in 2001 with the latest Census data.
