Clint Olivier Attempts to Deceive Voters

FRESNO—The Fresno County Democratic Party was appalled to learn that Fresno City Council District 7 candidate Clint Olivier paid to put his name on a fake Democratic voter guide to mislead voters into thinking he is a Democrat. Olivier is a registered Republican. He claims he has been so since initially registering to vote in Orange County.

“Democrats support our neighborhoods,” said Michael D. Evans, chair of the Fresno County Democratic Party. “Olivier’s voting history does not reflect Democratic values. He is a Republican for a reason—he advocates their radical agenda.”

The fake voter guide, which features a Democratic logo and Democratic candidates such as Jerry Brown and Betty Yee, is a classic, oft-used Republican tactic to confuse voters prior to elections.

“Voters won’t be fooled again by Olivier’s deceitful tactics,” says Mike Wells, one of Olivier’s opponents. “His voting record speaks for itself.”

“Olivier doesn’t have a good record to run on,” notes Doug Kessler, California Democratic Party Region 8 director, “therefore he feels it necessary to deceive the public in this Democratic-majority district.”

Olivier is “a Republican, and this ad insults both parties,” says Art Gonzales, who is also challenging Olivier in the June 3 election. “Olivier did not disavow himself from this mail fraud!”

“Follow the money,” Wells adds, “Republican politicians and corporations are financing his campaign…District 7 needs true democratic representation on City Council.”
