Redlands Council Candidate Layne Touts Union, Realtor Endorsements

Layne is one of six candidates running for two seats on the Redlands council.

Redlands City Council candidate Michael Layne has been endorsed by the Inland Valleys Association of Realtors, the Redlands Professional Firefighters Association, and the General Employees Association of Redlands, his campaign announced Wednesday.

The unions and the realtors association endorsed Layne because they believe in his commitment to making the community better, Layne's staff said in a statement.

"A fully funded Fire Department is heavily dependent on city revenues," Layne said. "The city's property and sales tax revenues have significantly declined over the past several years, which resulted in significant cuts to city staff and services.

"My approach is that you have to have a safe city in order to have a successful city," Layne said. "I am honored to have the endorsements from these organizations."

Layne is one of six candidates running for two seats on the Redlands council. Every registered voter in Redlands will have the chance to vote for two candidates on Nov. 6.

No wonder Don looks like he smells something! The stench of accepting public employee union money is all over his hands.

Where does Mr. Layne give his primary loyalty? The taxpayers or the GEUs?

Good luck Mr, Layne. If you get the Police then you'll be an odds on favorite to win the open seat. Highly unlikely you over take Mr. Aguilar after his Walmart vote.
