    least get Norberto over at Voice of OC to start covering you? It is a small but devoted readership and often prompts the OC Register to publish a story when Voice breaks news.

      And I will say plenty of the sorts of things that warrant it!

        to do a candidate statement? I don't get it. Hasn't someone ruled that unconstitutional or something?

        New Hampshire uses the Presidential primary to fill the state coffers, but even there I think the filing fee is only $1000.

          and is translated (for those who request it) into Spanish, Vietnamese, and other common foreign native tongues here.  So it probably costs them about that much.

          It's just about the best deal there is for reaching voters -- but $30,000 is a pretty huge barrier to entry!

          (Orange County is much, much larger than New Hampshire!  6th largest in the U.S.!)
