Shawn Nelson Is A Fierce Taxpayer Advocate And Leader On Pension Reform

Setting the Record Straight

Nelson is Orange County’s fiscal watchdog, fighting labor union’s abuse of the pension system and working to keep government small and out of our pockets. That’s why he’s earned the endorsement from California’s fiscal steward, State Senator John Moorlach.

Shawn promised to reform Orange County’s pension system and he delivered by bringing the lowest pension formula in the state and our employees pay the highest contribution rates in the state.

Pension Watchdog Jack Dean, president of Fullerton Association of Concerned Taxpayers (FACT) said, “During his 8 years on the Fullerton City Council, Shawn has demonstrated that he is a true friend of the taxpayer.”

“Shawn Nelson is willing to take on entrenched special interest groups. That’s why he is being targeted by them.”

“We need a leader with his understanding of the fiscal nuances desperately in need of repair in Washington. I watched him in action. He’s one of the best.”

“Don’t let the charges of attempts to underpay Shawn Nelson fool you. His legal expertise assisted the County in garnering the largest legal settlement in the county last year. His efforts resulted in a $26 million recovery to the County of Orange. I want this legal super star in our corner.”
