I’ve come to know T.J. Zane over the last few years through my involvement with our local San Diego Republican Party. Not just a caring family man, but as President and C.E.O. of the Lincoln Club of San Diego County, his leadership on fiscal reform efforts within the county have been successful and second-to-none.
T.J. is third on the ballot for Republican Central Committee voters within the 77th Assembly District. I’ve proudly voted for him, and encourage you to do so as well.
For more information, please check his SmartVoter profile here: http://www.smartvoter.org/2012/06/05/ca/sd/vote/zane_t/
If you live within Assembly District 77 and are registered Republican, I’d be honored to have your vote!
(Note: The “X” by my name was purely to show emphasis. I did vote for a full slate of 6 candidates, myself included of course.)
Friends, I have put up a Facebook page and I’m encouraging you to “Like” me. I’m hoping to move a lot of my political posts, thoughts, and ideas over to the page instead of my personal account.
With over 1500 friends, I feel a good number of them aren’t too into the political stuff — they’re just awesome, regular people. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I’m more leaning towards keeping them both separate.
Going into 2012, I was humbled by my election as President of the Clairemont Town Council. Here is my article that was published in the Clairemont Community News:
Here is a Letter to the Editor I penned to the San Diego Union-Tribune regarding a new medical marijuana initiative. The letter posted today (December 21, 2011):
With the efforts on San Diego city redistricting heating up, here is a Letter to the Editor I penned to the San Diego Union-Tribune that was posted today (July 7, 2011):
UPDATED: June 23rd, 2011
Before I begin this post, I must first preface the fact the only reason any congressional, legislative, and/or other governmental districts are gerrymandered for one of two reasons: 1) to protect incumbents, and 2) to disenfranchise voters and communities.
Much has been said within the City of San Diego lately about redistricting. After all, the 2010 Census results have been released which means that every governmental body which elects by districts must be redrawn to account for population growth and shifts. Often times, it determines who even is able to best represent various communities of interest.

The Noblest Motive Is The Public Good, County of San Diego
Yesterday, I had the honor of being re-appointed by my County Supervisor Ron Roberts, currently Vice Chair of the Board of Supervisors, to serve my second term (although, my first, full four-year term) as a member on the San Diego County Alcohol and Drug Advisory Board.
I was first appointed by Supervisor Roberts February of 2009 to fill a vacancy on the board. Given my previous experience with alcohol and drug prevention policy and issues, I was given this opportunity. I had perviously served on the Orange County Alcohol and Drug Advisory Board from September 2006 until my move to San Diego in December 2007. Continue reading

President Abraham Lincoln
Viability. Dedication. Trust. Three of the biggest challenges my party faces in every election going forward with one very important group — Latino voters.
New U.S. Census figures for 2010 show that not only are Latinos the fastest-growing ethinic minority in the country, but they’re on the rise to become a minority-majority in various states. There are more Latinos in California than anywhere else the country, and with that power, comes the power to vote. And with that vote, comes great responsibility. Continue reading

Clairemont Town Council being sworn-in by San Diego City Councilmember Lorie Zapf.
Since I had the opportunity to move into this Clairemont neighborhood of San Diego, I quickly jumped at the chance to get involved. The best way I figured was to join the Clairemont Town Council.
It was a pleasure to get to know then-President Lori Sorbo last summer, and along the way meet many new friends, and as of this post, my fellow board members. In November, I was elected as Vice-President for the Clairemont Town Council and couldn’t be more excited at this new opportunity to help serve in my community. Continue reading
