Hernandez Racks Up Out Of State Cash, Local Support Small

Daniel Hernandez has had a tough time recently due to the revelation that he lied about having a college degree. His tenure on the Sunnyside Unified School District Governing Board has won him few friends and as a result it appears he has had to seek money from deep-pocket donors outside Legislative District 2.

According to the most recent campaign finance filing report, Hernandez has only raised $200 from small donors, with the bulk of the funding coming from lobbyists and power company PACs.

Sergio Arellano, LD2 Chair for the GOP stated, “When you have someone that has based his whole career on lies, it becomes difficult to discern reality from fiction. How is one supposed to trust the word of someone that has so blatantly disregarded the people and the trust they placed in him. When the Latinos in Legislative District 2 see a politician like Hernandez, they say he’s trying to feed us oatmeal with a finger (Atole con el dedo). They are not going to trust that he will spend their contributions wisely.”

  1. This is amazing looking at the list of donors $5000 from a D.C. based political action committee and one from the CEO of John McCains Henely beer distribution company.

    All of this to prop up a failed lying Schoolboard member from the south side of Tucson for a state legislature spot.

    Hmmmmmmmmm………

  2. Is this the same hernandez character that commented here and supports the Criminal, Illegal, Alien, Invaders over U.S. citizens?

  3. Daniel failed his community when he did not keep his promise to the Sunnyside Recall community.

    He was misleading about his not completing his under graduate degree. But he like YOU and I are entitled to make errors. Let me remind you if your not guilty of some wrong. them go ahead and throw first stone.

    Yes I still support immigration reform. That me Richard not Daniel. Yes I do VOTE. So you cast your vote and I will as well.

    Daniel only claim to fame is his effort to aide Gaby Gifford. He has deserved praise for that. Question is what have you done since?

    Public office means to be of SERVICE.

    When you ask yourself as a elected person is how does this ( any issue )improve the quality of life for community? Step away from special interest and machine in Pima County.

    I still oppose Raul Grijalva, Adelita , Richard Elias, Richard Fimbres, Sharon Bronson, Ray Carroll, Ramon Valadez, Chris Nanos ete. These folks are self serving and paid by special interest.

    I do support immigration reform. Equal wages, public education , veterans, lgbtq, the elderly, needy, minorities to name a few issues.

    Daniel you should step out of public elected service til you gain another decade or so of life experiences. Education / book knowledge is NO replacement for living life experiences.

    I will be hopeful that you will all Vote. Let the majority rule. Democracy is about reaching a consensus. Now that Daniel has conveniently moved out of my LD I can only encourage that those who are in his area make your opinion known, VOTE.

  4. Google Arthur Rock and take a look at his philanthropy. Trying to convert AZ to San Fransisco values.

  5. He lied about a college degree? How did Gabby Giffords hire him with out the required collegiate level brainwashing?
