Radio ad slams Arambula over run-in with Fresno Co. Supervisors

Assemblyman Joaquin Arambula’s (D–Fresno) confrontation last week with members of the Fresno County Board of Supervisors has made him the target of conservative activist and campaign consultant Tal Cloud.

Sixty-second radio ads voiced by Cloud and paid for by Common Sense Information, accuse Arambula, a Fresno Democrat, of personal motives for last Friday’s verbal spat over COVID-19 mitigation spending.

Cloud formed Common Sense Information, an independent political committee, in 2010 and it has a history of attacking politicians, groups, and causes that Cloud opposes via radio ads airing throughout the state.

Ominous music plays underneath a narration touching on Arambula’s 2019 child abuse trial in which he was acquitted and speculating on his motivation for confronting the supervisors.
